|We are seeking highly motivated individuals for postdoctoral positions in the laboratory of Dr. Yun Liang at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
About you: We welcome candidate who is passionate about biological or biomedical sciences. A PhD in immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry or closely related discipline is required. Experience with -omics and/or mouse models is preferred. We support your career path towards independency.
About our laboratory: Our laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular basis for sexual dimorphism in immunity, which represents a remarkable and unexplained example for biological differences between men and women. Many autoimmune diseases feature strikingly increased prevalence in females (~78% female overall and up to 95% for specific diseases). In contrast, infectious diseases affect more men than women at a 2:1 ratio. Using a combination of -omic, molecular, cell-based and animal-based approaches, we aim to decipher the mechanisms underlying the fundamental differences in immune regulation between men and women (e.g., Liang et al., Nature Immunology 2017; 18(2):152-160). For more information, please visit our lab website at https://mmi.wisc.edu/staff/liang-yun/.
About the University: The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of America’s Public Ivy universities and is a leader in biological research internationally. It was given a top ranking by the 2015 US News & World Report globally, tied with Harvard University. It has 20 Nobel Prize awardees.
How to apply: Please send Dr. Liang a cover letter with a statement of your scientific background, research interests and career goals, a CV, and the names/contact information of three referees by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
