Job Description

We are recruiting goal-oriented, creative, collaborative and highly motivated postdocs to use single cell omics, transcriptome and epigenome to study T cell differentiation and age-related alterations of T cell function. We perform both bulk and single-cell transcriptomic, epigenetic, and proteomic assays to study the role of T cell differentiation and age-related changes. Specifically, we study the 1) epigenetic regulation of transcriptomes during CD8 T cell differentiation and aging; 2) antigen-specific CD8 T and B cell receptor repertoires against virus and cancer cells, and their roles in T cell response and aging; and 3) role of innate and adaptive immunity in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Our scope ranges from fundamental molecular mechanisms to clinical applications. We use human samples and mouse models for research with goals for advancing immunology as well as clinical applications. We encourage applicants with relevant experiences in immunology, microbiology, genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, and bioengineering to join our team. Successful applicant is expected to have a PhD or MD/PhD with substantial research experience. Prior experiences with molecular biology, immunology, and human and mouse work are preferred. For further information, please visit the Weng lab: at the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health. To apply, applicants should send their Curriculum Vitae, a description of past research accomplishments, future research interests, and three names for reference to:
