Postdoctoral Fellow Positions

Postdoctoral fellows play an integral role in our research labs, and many of our investigators are actively recruiting.

Skok Lab—June 24, 2021

The laboratory of Jane Skok, PhD, is looking for a wet lab postdoc to analyze the impact of CTCF mutations that have been identified in cancer on chromosome architecture and gene regulation.

Candidates should have a background in chromatin biology and preferentially experience in chromosome conformation capture (3C), CRISPR, and next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques (such as ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, and ATAC-seq). The candidate is expected to establish an independent research project and to generate high impact publications, which should provide them with an excellent opportunity for further career development in academia or pharmaceutical companies.

Feske Lab—July 23, 2020

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Feske Lab to study the role of ion channels in immunity to infection, autoimmunity, and antitumor immunity.

The Feske Lab has longstanding expertise in investigating calcium signaling pathways in cells of the immune system. We study the molecular regulation of calcium release–activated channels (CRAC) formed by ORAI and STIM proteins, and investigate their role in the physiology of immune cells. We use mice with targeted deletion of CRAC channels and human patients with mutations in CRAC channel genes to investigate how calcium signals control immune responses to infection and tumors as well as in autoimmunity and inflammation.

Besides CRAC channels, the Feske Lab is investigating many other ion channels and how they regulate adaptive and innate immune responses to pathogens, tumors, and self-antigens. Research by our members is published in leading journals including Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, Immunity, Nature Immunology, Nature Communications, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Journal of Clinical Investigation, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

We are seeking highly motivated and creative postdoctoral scientists to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of ion channel function in immune cells and their role in immune responses in vitro and in vivo using animal models of immunity.

Candidates should have a recent MD, PhD, or MD/PhD and a strong background in immunology, specifically in the use of animal models or signal transduction. Experience in ion channel function is advantageous but not required.

To apply, email a cover letter explaining relevant work experience and interests, a CV, and the contact information of three references to principal investigator Stefan Feske, MD, at
