A research associate, postdoctoral, position is available in the Gastrointestinal Stress Biology Laboratory at Michigan State University (https://cvm.msu.edu/research/faculty-research/moeser) to investigate mechanistic interactions between environmental challenges (psychological stress, environmental toxin exposure) and biological sex during early life on mast cell developmental programming and immune-related disease risk throughout the lifespan. Selected individuals will join a highly productive and interactive group of NIH- and USDA-funded investigators and will have the opportunity to utilize and integrate a wide range of experimental approaches and models including in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, optogenetics, in vivo mast cell genetic murine models (Cre/lox, ribotag, etc.), porcine models, and human tissues.
Salary will be commensurate with experience and NIH guidelines.
Applicants must have a doctoral or equivalent degree, or be in the final stages of earning such a degree.
Preferred skills and knowledge base include any combination of some of the following skill sets: mast cell biology, molecular biology, immunology assays, histology and confocal microscopy, electrophysiology, mouse genetic models.
