Post-Doc Position at University of Minnesota

We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a passion for exciting
state-of-the-art technology to work with a team of translational
immunologists to lead the mass cytometry and imaging facility at
the University of Minnesota.
Qualifications; Essential Qualifications: Bachelor's Degree or a combination of related education and experience to equal four years. Applies knowledge and skills to a recurring task or activity with emphasis typically on precision and timeliness of execution. Experience working with human and nonhuman samples. Knowledge of aseptic techniques and a familiarity with cell culture techniques.
Preferred Qualifications: Proficiency with Microsoft Office programs.
About the Study In this large-scale clinical study, the candidates will work with an interdisciplinary team of PIs and Co-Is to join for NIH-funded Research Evaluating Vagal Excitation and Anatomical Links (REVEAL) project that will take place over three years. REVEAL aims to study the anatomical connections and functional effects (the cardiovascular, metabolic, autonomic nervous, and immune systems) of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), an FDA-approved treatment for epilepsy and depression.
About the Job
Summary of Position: The Transplantation Tolerance Laboratories (TTL) within the Schulze Diabetes Institute (SDI) in the Department of Surgery is looking for highly motivated individuals passionate about exciting state-of-the-art technology that explores the world of single cells using mass cytometry. This individual will work with a team of translational immunologists and post-doc and report directly to Amar Singh, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, within the SDI in the Department of Surgery. The individual will perform duties and responsibilities as a researcher I in the TTL. General laboratory functions are also expected of this position.

Overall, the SDI/TTL lab is interested in understanding how VNS alters the immune system and impacts protective immunity. The candidate will perform deep immune profiling and single-cell ATAC/RNA-seq before and after VNS device implantation to determine whether i) baseline immune signatures predict the response to VNS, ii) clinical improvements correlate with distinct immune system signatures, iii) VNS ameliorates depression and epilepsy by modulating the underlying autoimmunity, iv) changes in immune responses to VNS are stable or fluctuate over time, and v) VNS device parameter settings can be personalized based on immune system profiling for enhanced efficacy.
