Postdoctoral Position

 

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Kate MacNamara to study stress-induced hematopoiesis in murine models of infection and disease. Our research is aimed at clarifying the mechanisms leading to functional changes in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells during infection. Experience in immunology, cell biology, microbiology, and/or stem cell biology required, and experience working with murine models of infection preferred.  Looking for a highly motivated, independent, and creative thinker who has strong communication and organization skills. Expertise in flow cytometry, immunofluoresence, microscopy, and imaging is an advantage. Albany Medical College has a close relationship with the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Laboratories, providing a diverse environment rich in infectious disease expertise.  Albany is a mid-sized city within the upstate New York Capital Region, and has easy access to Boston, New York City, and the Adirondack and Berkshire Mountains.
