The Idoyaga Lab at the Microbiology & Immunology Department at Stanford University School of Medicine (http://idoyagalab.stanford.edu) is seeking two postdoctoral research fellows to work on dendritic cell biology. We are taking an integrated and multidisciplinary approach that spans the use of high-dimensional single cell approaches such as scRNA-seq, CyTOF, ATAC-seq, and functional assays in human and mouse models to dissect the function of distinct dendritic cell subsets in the context of health and disease. The postdoctoral fellows will be conducting research to decipher: a) the role of novel transcription factors in the development and function of dendritic cell subsets; and b) the functional properties of human tissue dendritic cells in health and disease. The work will contribute to our overall mission of narrowing the gap between human and mouse dendritic cell biology to enable the development of dendritic cell-based therapeutics. Details about the projects will be provided to applicants during interview; however, further information about our current research program can be found in our webpage. The Idoyaga Lab upholds the highest professional standards while embracing and promoting a collaborative and diverse environment. We emphasize motivation, dedication to research, and training of lab members for their own career goals. The lab is part of the Microbiology and Immunology Program, the Immunology Program, the Stanford Cancer Institute, and the Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health (ChEM-H) Institute. Stanford University and the Bay Area offer unique opportunities for scientific growth and interactions in a highly collaborative and dynamic environment. Applicants should email a cover letter describing previous experience and interests, CV and contact information of 3 referees.
Successful candidates should have (or soon receive) a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D/Ph.D. degree in the field of immunology, medicine or computational sciences; and are expected to demonstrate a track record of research achievements and ability to work independently and collaboratively in a team. Other desired skills for this position are a) immunology background; b) computational skills and big data analysis (e.g., scRNA-seq, ATAC-seq); c) experience handling and analyzing human samples; d) experience handling mouse models; and e) experience with flow cytometry, cell sorting, CyTOF, 10x genomics and/or SMART-seq.
