Our research is to understand the molecular basis of T cell mediated immune responses, and how abnormal immune regulation leads to immunodeficiency, autoimmunity and cancer. Autoimmunity and inflammation mouse models include experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), colitis, and lung airway inflammation; tumor immunity models include T cell-mediated immune responses against transplanted melanoma, chemical induced sarcoma, and lung cancer. The Nurieva lab at the MD Anderson Cancer Center is recruiting a postdoc to conduct research in the following projects: 1. The molecular mechanisms of T cell activation and tolerance; 2. The signaling and transcriptional mechanisms underlying T helper cell differentiation and function.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. degree or in the process of completing Ph.D. training and a solid background in Immunology, with preferred hand-on experience in flow cytometry, molecular techniques, and mouse models of autoimmunity and/or anti-tumor immunity.
Send curriculum vitae and names of three references to Dr. Roza Nurieva.
The Nurieva lab accepts graduate students through the MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Prospective students can find information on admissions here.
Current first-year students with an interest in: 1. The molecular mechanisms of T cell activation and tolerance; and/or 2. The signaling and transcriptional mechanisms underlying T helper cell differentiation and function, should contact Dr. Roza Nurieva to arrange for a rotation in the lab.
