Postdoc in Innate Immunity (Gekara Lab)

We are looking for a postdoc in Innate Immunity to the Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) ( The position will be placed at The Department of Molecular Biology at Umeå University. The position is initially for two years with a possibility for extension. It will start 2017-03-31 or at a later date as agreed.

Project description - mechanisms of innate immune regulation during infection and inflammation

We are interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern the regulation of pattern recognition receptor signaling pathways and how the breakdown of such regulation influences the outcome of infectious or inflammatory diseases ( Recently we have identified a number of new signaling molecules involved in the regulation of the innate immune system (e.g. Panda S, Nilsson JA, Gekara NO. Immunity. 2015 Oct 20;43(4):647-59; Härtlova A, et al., Immunity. 2015 Feb 17;42(2):332-43 and Erttmann SF, et al., Immunity. 2016 Jul 19;45(1):106-18). The goal of this project is to investigate their molecular mechanisms during infection and inflammation.
