A postdoctoral position is available in the Moser lab at the University of Florida Department of Medicine. The successful candidate will lead projects investigating how ubiquitin ligases regulate B cells in mouse models of disease.
Research in the Moser lab focuses on 1) understanding how ubiquitin ligases regulate B cell activating signals and metabolic fitness, 2) determining how these basic cell biology metrics play out in the “survival of the fittest” environment of the germinal center, and 3) defining how perturbing ubiquitin ligases in B cells impacts antibody responses and disease in lupus models and after viral infection.
What you will do:
- Plan, execute, analyze, and interpret experiments that will illuminate how the ubiquitin system regulates humoral immunity
- Communicate your findings through presentations, manuscripts, and grant applications
- Collaborate with scientists, trainees, and technicians at UF and beyond
What you bring:
- Ph.D. awarded in the past 3 years in a relevant biomedical discipline
- Immunology background and willingness to work in mouse models
- Self-motivated with a strong work ethic and ability to receive constructive criticism
How to apply:
- Email your cover letter, CV, and list of 3 references to Dr. Moser email@example.com
- Use “Postdoctoral applicant to study ubiquitin in B Cells” in the subject line
