Cedars-Sinai Postdoctoral Scientist - Martins Lab - Immunobiology in Los Angeles, California
Research in the Martins Laboratory focuses on the molecular regulation of immune responses, particularly the mechanisms regulating T lymphocyte function. We are interested in identifying pathways that can be harnessed to manipulate T lymphocyte function and potentially interfere with ongoing immune responses associated with chronic inflammatory conditions.
The Martins Laboratory is affiliated with the F. Widjaja Foundation Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute at https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Research/Departments-and-Institutes/IBD/ and the Department of Medicine.To learn more about the lab, please vistit https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Research/Research-Labs/Martins-Lab/
Research Post Doc at the F. Widjaja Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Immunobiology Institute (IBIRI) develops and works on basic and translational individual and collaborative projects with guidance from the PI. The post doc needs to be independent but also a team player to work closely with the principal Investigator, other researchers in the laboratory, and internal and external collaborators. Specific responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Familiar with basic and advanced immunology concepts and methodologies;
Keeps up with the literature and is apt to incorporate new concepts from the literature when interpreting results
Designs and performs complex immunobiology experiments, and incorporate novel techniques and discoveries in cellular and molecular immunology required for advancement of projects in the lab
Proficient in handling and working with mice and human tissues
Interprets experimental results and demonstrates troubleshooting and problem-solving skills;
Assists in preparation of figures and writing for manuscripts and grant proposals, and participates in publications and presentations as author or co-author; might apply for career development funding, but not responsible for generating grant funds.Educational Requirements
Doctorate (MD, PhD, VMD, or DDS) in immunology and or molecular biology
Independently works on research projects designed by a mentor (typically the PI) within an area of specialization. Acquires thorough technical and theoretical knowledge of research project and objectives during one to five (1-4) year post-doctoral appointment. Demonstrated aptitude to perform experimental protocols and procedures, including detailed data collection, and analysis and operation and maintenance of specialized equipment. Knowledge of safety standards and maintenance of specialized equipment.
