Postdoctoral Fellow-MSH

Job Description

Strength Through Diversity

Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.

Roles & Responsibilities:
  • The Cerutti lab is seeking a full-time Postdoc to dissect the regulation and gut microbiota reactivity of T cell-dependent and T cell-independent SIgA responses, to determine how these responses shape microbiota composition, and elucidate the molecular requirements of these responses by using mouse models as well as human samples. This project is part of a collaborative project between Dr. Cerutti and Drs. Cunningham-Rundles, Mere and Casanova.
    The B cell biology Laboratory uses state-of-the-art cellular, molecular and in vivo techniques to address clinically relevant questions related to the regulation of antibody production by B cells. We are particularly interested in the mechanisms whereby innate immune cells facilitate the activation of B cells. We are also analyzing how intestinal B cells generate antibodies to commensal bacteria and how these antibodies shape the composition of the gut microbiota. Our interest extends to intestinal antibody-binding protein such as the mucin 2, which enhances gut homeostasis.


  • The candidate must hold a PhD, or obtain a PhD in the near future, should have experience in the areas of Immunology and/or host-microbe Interactions, as well as strong publication record with high impact articles, including at least one first authorship. The candidate must be proficient in oral and written English and must have prior experience with mouse handling, preferably also with colony management. We seek candidates who have excellent communication and multi-tasking skills, are team-oriented, proactive, driven, dedicated, self-motivated, honest, critical and open-minded. Previous experience in mucosal immunology and big data analysis will be a definite advantage.
