The Venosa Laboratory (https://pharmacy.utah.edu/pharmtox/faculty/current-faculty/alessandro-venosa.php) is seeking a highly motivated postdocs to join our laboratory’s efforts to understand the epithelial-immune crosstalk in air pollution exposure. Our goal is to investigate the impact of ozone and particulate on the activation of resident alveolar macrophages and the recruitment of peripheral populations, among which eosinophils, B cells, NK cells; we further aim to expand this work to include susceptibility factors including sex differences, aging, preexisting conditions (fibrosis) and genetic mutations. The postdoc will have the opportunity to work in a multi-disciplinary environment in close collaboration with pulmonary and geriatrics physicians, exposure scientists, and molecular and systems biologists at the University of Utah.
Initial work will ask for mapping cell types involved injury complemented with a focus on site-specific cell-cell interactions, their response to environmental cues, and their role in pulmonary disease pathogenesis. We aim to evaluate the function of different cell types using state-of-the-art, high-throughput single cell epigenomic and transcriptomic techniques. Flexibility on the specific project to be developed will be based on individual expertise and scientific interest.
· PhD, MD, or equivalent doctoral degree in systems biology, molecular biology, toxicology, immunology
· Record of scientific achievement through publications and presentations
· Strong track record in design and execution of experiments and a passion for translational science
· Excellent written and spoken communication skills in English
· Ability to conduct research independently; interest in mechanistic research
· Exceptional problem solving and interpersonal skills
