The UCLA Immunogenetics Center, Department of Pathology, University of California, Los Angeles (www.hla.ucla.edu) is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate for a translational research project in transplant immunology. The project focuses on mechanisms of antibody-mediated allograft injury and transplant rejection. The project seeks to understand how antibody activated endothelium alters monocyte function using in vitro and in vivo human and murine cardiac allograft models. The postdoctoral fellow will (1) characterize HLA class I and class II signaling in endothelial cell activation and monocyte polarization and 2) define the functional crosstalk between HLA and its co-receptors in mediating endothelial cell activation, monocyte recruitment and polarization.

The candidate will benefit from a highly collaborative and diverse environment at the University of California Los Angeles. Applicant must be a Ph.D. candidate or recent Ph.D. graduate (within the past 2 years) in immunology, cell and/or molecular biology with experience in tissue culture, cellular immunology, and flow cytometry.
