The group focuses on characterizing mechanisms that lead to immune dysregulation, loss of immunologic tolerance and end-organ damage in systemic autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus. The successful candidate will employ innovative approaches to understand how the innate immune system contributes to the development of autoimmune disorders,  integrating the use of human and murine systems with omics technologies and functional studies. 

Qualifications: We seek highly motivated, collaborative and creative individuals with MD, Ph.D. or MD Ph.D. and less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience.  Previous experience in cellular/ molecular biology, systems biology analysis and/or animal models of disease is desirable. The candidate should have excellent writing and communication skills.
