The laboratory of Dr. Milner seeks a postdoctoral fellow with experience in human and/or mouse lymphocyte immunology. Our laboratory studies patients with known or yet to be discovered monogenic diseases of allergy in order to determine how genetic lesions cause atopic phenotypes. Lymphocyte receptor and cytokine signaling pathways are often implicated, as well as novel pathways more poorly understood, leading to a research program that integrates signaling and differentiation studies, disease modeling with functional study of mutant transfections, and in some cases, mouse models of human disease.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain expertise in an innovative area at the interface of genomics and immunology with direct clinical relevance as well.
