The Harrington Lab seeks a talented Post-Doc or PhD-trained Research Scientist to join our lab. We focus on intergenerational-immune interactions, specifically the role of in utero acquired maternal cells (maternal microchimerism) on the development of the fetal and infant immune system and post-natal susceptibility to infection. We have active projects investigating the phenotype and function of maternal microchimerism in susceptibility to malaria and HIV and in immunologic responses to early vaccination. The project associated with this position seeks to specifically understand the role of maternal cells in shaping immunity to foreign antigens experienced in utero and in the early post-natal period. The ideal candidate would have a degree, or extensive experience, in human immunology, with specific experience in flow cytometry, co-culture, and single cell evaluation.
