Innate Lymphoid and Natural Killer Cell Development and Function
Innate lymphoid cells are a relatively newly described cell type that is critical for the development of lymphoid tissues in fetal life and mucosal immunity in adult life. These cells are developmentally similar to NK cells. The instructive signals that dictate ILC vs. NK fates have not been entirely determined. My laboratory is focused on understanding the development and function of ILCs and NK cells early after allogeneic transplantation because these two cell populations play important roles in the recovery of the immune system and graft vs. leukemia reactions, respectively.
An NIH funded postdoctoral position is immediately available to study human ILC and NK cell development from CD34+ hematopoietic progenitors using a newly developed model system and after transplantation using existing patient material obtained on IRB-approved protocols. This translational research project will focus on: 1) the developmental requirements of ILCs from progenitors and methods to generate sufficient cells for adoptive therapy, 2) the study of environmental signaling pathways provided by stroma and other cell types on ILC development, 3) determination of the molecular mechanisms that govern the commitment of progenitors to the ILC lineage and the functional maturation of ILCs and cNKs and 4) the use of ILC in models of allogeneic transplantation.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and a track record of accomplishments. Experience with purification and culture of stem cells and NK cells, multicolor flow cytometry, cytotoxicity assays, cloning, and PCR (quantitative) are required. Studies will also rely heavily on cell purification, cell culture, multicolor FACS analysis and handling of clinical samples. Clear and concise communication and written skills are also mandatory.
To apply: Applicants should send curriculum vitae and a statement of research interests and intentions to:
Michael R. Verneris, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation, University of Minnesota; Verneris@UMN.edu.

Post-doctoral Fellow - Genetic basis of autoimmune disease (PGaffney)
We are seeking a Post-doctoral Fellow to investigate the genetic basis of autoimmune disease focusing on but not limited to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The laboratory is currently investigating the genetic mechanisms of several SLE susceptibility genes involved in the ubiquitination pathway including TNFAIP3, TNIP1, UBE2L3 and several others. While the genetic associations in these genes are confirmed, the causal variants that are responsible for SLE susceptibility are unclear. We are therefore seeking a highly talented and motivated individual to join our NIH funded laboratory and to lead investigation into the causal variants present in one or more of these risk loci.
Our laboratory employs a wide variety of analytical techniques in the effort to identify causal variants including high-throughput sequencing of DNA, RNA, methylation and histone marks, electrophoretic mobility shift assays, chromosome conformation capture, ChIP-PCR, mass spectrometry, and genome engineering using site-specific engineered nucleases. Competitive individuals will also demonstrate proficiency in the analysis of genetic data, high-throughput sequencing data and the use of bioinformatics software. Candidates will also demonstrate proficiency in interpreting assay results, summarizing findings, and assisting with manuscript preparation, grant writing, supervising graduate students and presenting data at national meetings.
Ph.D., M.D., or Ph.D./M.D.
Previous experience with genetic data analysis, next generation sequencing, immunological assays, and molecular biology techniques. Ability to use UNIX command line programming and R is considered a plus.

Our research focuses on the interactions between the immune system and metabolism. In recent decades, the prevalence of obesity has reached epidemic proportions in Western societies; moreover, chronic inflammation is now recognized as a central characteristic of obesity and the associated pathologies. However, the endogenous and environmental cues that drive inflammation in the context of nutritional surplus and the metabolic pathways that support adequate immune responses are not understood.
The long-term goals of the laboratory are to understand the role of the interactions between the microbiota and the immune system in the development of metabolic syndrome, and to comprehend the metabolic pathways that are necessary for appropriate immune responses. To accomplish these goals, we will use the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing system as a fundamental tool to generate innovative mouse models in extremely short periods of time.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and have strong laboratory and analytical skills, significant experience in molecular/cellular immunology, and good communication and organizational skills.

My lab is interested in understanding how productive immunity emerges from the many ‘conversations’ that take place between cells of the innate and adaptive immune compartments. At present, we are working to deconstruct and understand the molecular mechanism that transfer antigen- and context-specific information from the interface between a T cell and antigen presenting cell to the T cell’s intracellular signaling apparatus. The available projects in the lab are related to these efforts. We are using a variety of classic molecular, cellular, and biochemical techniques, as well as modern live cell imaging approaches such as TIRFM, to probe these processes. Altogether, our work is aimed at increasing our basic and practical understanding of T cell activation and regulation. Enthusiastic people with a PhD, a pioneering spirit, an interest in the subject, a background in immunology and/or biochemistry, a willingness to learn, recent publications and a strong desire to publish are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.

Seeking a post-doctoral fellow for Innovative projects that focus on innate immune mechanisms triggering cytopathic adaptive immune responses. The projects include: novel pathways that regulate macrophages (kidney, skin, joints [arthritis]), identifying aberrant macrophages linked to autoimmune lupus, and determining the unique and shared role of the principle macrophage developmental molecules in immune mediated inflammation. Unique transgenic strains and knockout mice with reporter genes have been constructed on lupus-susceptible strains for these projects. Other projects focus on aberrant macrophages that mediate defective repair in muscular dystrophic diseases. These projects have seeded human translational components in patients with lupus (biomarkers, therapeutic targets).
MD or PhD required.
