Job Information

Washington University of St. Louis Postdoctoral Research Associate - Anatomic and Molecular Pathology - 47736 in St. Louis, Missouri

Post Doc Instructions

Please do not submit an application to this posting. To apply for this postdoctoral research opportunity, follow the directions below in “Applicant Special Instructions”.

Department Name/Job Location

This position is in the Department of Pathology and Immunology, Division of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology. This position is for the Medical School Campus.

Essential Functions

The interests of the Liu lab are in understanding how genetic and environmental factors interactions shape immunity and metabolism. We have shown that in patients and mouse models of Crohn’s disease, the function of small intestinal Paneth cells (critical for innate immunity and stem cell homeostasis) can be modulated by gene-environment interactions (Gastroenterology 2014, JCI Insight 2016, JCI Insight 2017, JCI 2018). The primary focus of this position will be to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms using a combination of molecular and cell biology approaches in mouse models, organoid culture, primary samples, and bioinformatics analysis.

Preferred Qualifications

Experience with primary cell culture (including organoids), flow cytometry, and microbiota analysis.

Salary Range

Base pay commensurate with experience.
