We seek highly motivated individuals for several postdoctoral fellow positions in the Laboratory of Molecular Immunology at the Institute Pasteur of Shanghai, The Chinese Academy of Sciences.
We study the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating the immune response in major human infectious diseases. Currently, we are particularly interested in understanding the dynamic role of a subpopulation of T cells, namely natural or inducible regulatory T cells (FOXP3+Tregs), in major human infectious diseases (Background reading: Li et al. 2006 Immunol. Rev. 212:99-113; Li et al. 2007 Curr. Opin. Immunol. 19 (5):589-95; Li and Greene 2007 Cell Cycle 15;6 (12):1432-6; Li and Greene 2008 Immunology 123 (1):17-9; Xiao Y, Li B et al 2010 Curr. Opin.

For Postdoctoral positions, a Ph.D. degree in virology, immunology, cellular biology or clinical research is required. A research background in the following fields: including clinical immunology, HIV、HCV or Flu infection, microRNA biology, cell metabolism, or in vivo disease models will be a plus. Individuals who are interested in studying the regulatory role of the immune system in major infectious diseases or viral-host interactions are encouraged to apply.
Positions will remain open until filled. Salary will be commensurate with experience. The Institute Pasteur of Shanghai, CAS is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Please submit research statement, curriculum vitae, and names/e-mail addresses of three referees directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. General enquiries are welcome.
