Department:37042110 - SR-IM-SUNDRUD LAB

Classification Title:

Postdoctoral Associate

Job Description: The Sundrud lab at Scripps Research Florida, Department of Immunology and Microbiology, is seeking outstanding and highly motivated postdocs to study the regulation of mucosal T cell function in the intestine. The Sundrud lab is mapping novel pathways by which circulating T cells maintain immune homeostasis and suppress inflammation upon homing to intestinal mucosae (PMID: 29262351, 33828301). The lab has multiple NIH awards to define these, and other, pathways that control diverse aspects of T cell differentiation, T cell function and tissue homeostasis in both healthy and disease states (learn more about our work at

The successful candidate will assume a leadership position within the lab; set the tone for both scientific and scholarly excellence; drive forward complex, innovative and translationally impactful projects; develop and write fellowship applications; and participate in a variety group and departmental seminar and journal club series. In return, you will gain critical experience working in a fast-paced and dynamic group environment, and receive full-time support from a Senior Research Assistant. The Sundrud lab utilizes both human and mouse immunology systems to ask fundamental and translational research questions about T cell-mediated inflammation. As such, the training and experience you receive in the lab can be carried forward in either Academic or Industrial research settings. Join a world leader in the discovery and early application of biomedical breakthroughs for human health. Together we can make a difference.

Postdoctoral Associates are appointed positions for the purpose of developing scholarly competence, working under the supervision of a Scripps Research Faculty member. These appointments are normally not renewed beyond a total of five years. Postdoctoral Associates cannot apply for external funding either as a Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator without prior approval from a Departmental Chair. Postdoctoral Associates do not have consulting privileges. Details of established essential functions for this position will be addressed/discussed during the interview process.
Expected Salary:

Commensurate with experience

Minimum Requirements:

Must possess a doctoral degree. A pending doctoral degree may be considered with approval of the Principal Investigator.

Preferred Qualifications:
  • You have either recently obtained a Ph.D. (preferably within the last 2 years, and preferably in the fields of Immunology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or Physiology), or your doctoral degree is pending.
  • You have an established record of publishing high-quality research articles, and expertise in core molecular biology and/or biochemistry techniques: cloning, western blotting, immunoprecipitation.
  • You have a strong foundation in aseptic culture techniques, mouse handling and husbandry, and flow cytometry. You also have a basic understanding of programming languages (R or Python), experience analyzing either publicly available or de novo high-throughput sequencing data (e.g., RNA-seq, DNA-seq, ATAC-seq and/or ChIP-seq), and an eagerness to develop these skills through additional coursework, workshops and/or bootcamps.
  • Additional experience with culturing and analyzing T cells, performing genetic gain- and loss-of-function studies (e.g., RNAi, CRISPR), and running in vivo mouse models of autoimmunity or inflammation are preferred, but not required.
Special Instructions to Applicants:
To be considered, please apply and submit your cover letter, CV, and a list of at least three professional references with complete contact information including telephone numbers and email addresses.

The final candidate will be required to provide official transcript to the hiring department upon hire.
