National Jewish Health in Denver opens a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Magdalena M. Gorska. Dr. Gorska’s laboratory is focused on non-genetic transmission of predisposition to allergy and asthma between generations. The basic goals of the laboratory are to elucidate the cellular/molecular nature of the parental information, the transmission routes, and the cellular/molecular receivers of the parental information in offspring. In regard to “receiver” identification, the laboratory initial focus is on cells of the immune system. The translational goals are to identify early life footprints/ biomarkers of predisposition to allergic diseases and provide targets for development of disease prevention regimens. To accomplish the goals, the laboratory uses mouse models, human cell systems and a variety of immunological, signaling and epigenetic approaches. An ideal applicant should have a doctoral degree (PhD or MD), background in immunology, experience in mouse models and good knowledge of standard research practices and methods. The candidate should be highly motivated, enthusiastic about science, learn quickly, think creatively and independently and work efficiently.
