Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Immunology of the Urogenital Tract

A funded postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Battistone laboratory at

Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School to explore the

molecular basis of mucosal immunity in the urogenital tract, with the aim to

identify new diagnostic/therapeutic targets for kidney injury and male infertility.

We employ an innovative multidisciplinary approach that makes use of different

state-of-the-art techniques including 3D confocal microscopy, transcriptomics

analysis, flow cytometry and cell sorting, as well as mouse models to describe how

specialized epithelial cells and immunocytes communicate in the urogenital tract.

Postdoctoral fellows will benefit from a highly collaborative environment and

connections to premier biomedical institutions in the greater Boston area

(Massachusetts, USA).

Candidates for this position must have a Ph.D. in the biomedical sciences. Ideal

applicants will have an experimental background in molecular/cellular biology and

mouse models of disease, a strong publication record, and excellent

communication/interpersonal skills.
