Rahimi_lab Boston, MA, USA


Description:

The Rahimi laboratory in the Center for Immunology and Inflammatory Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to study Th2 cell fate decisions in the context of allergic immunity. We are interested in understanding the rules governing the development of long-lived memory Th2 cells that drive chronic allergic disease.
-

Current projects in the lab focus on (1) defining the crosstalk between lung dendritic cells and effector Th2 cells that regulate the development of tissue-resident memory Th2 cells and (2) defining the role of lipid metabolism in regulating Th2 cell fate.

-

The Rahimi laboratory is funded through the NIH/NHLBI and institutional awards. This is a fully-funded position and project that provides an excellent opportunity to work in an exciting area within a dynamic, collaborative, and supportive group. Interested applicants should email their CV, a description of research accomplishments, and the names and email addresses of three references to: rrahimi@mgh.harvard.edu.



Qualifications/Preferred Skillsets:

We seek a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow (PhD, MD/PhD, or MD) with a background in immunology to lead our ongoing project defining the crosstalk between lung dendritic cells and effector Th2 cells during allergic immunity. International candidates are encouraged to apply. Experience working with mice, flow cytometry and/or advanced microscopy is required.
