The Rowley lab at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital and Northwestern University Medical School is seeking a motivated individual for the position of Post-Doctoral Research Associate. The main focus of the Rowley laboratory is the etiology/pathogenesis of Kawasaki disease, and the lab seeks a post-doctoral researcher with experience in immunology and molecular biology to move forward exciting preliminary studies of the etiology of Kawasaki disease. The Rowley lab also studies B cell (plasmablast) responses to infection and autoimmune diseases. The Post-Doctoral Associate will design and conduct research in collaboration with Dr. Rowley, performing experiments, data analysis, and preparation of manuscripts for publication. The anticipated studies would include flow cytometry with single cell isolation; RNA and DNA extraction and purification; sequencing data analysis; cell culture, transfection, and protein isolation; histologic studies of paraffin-embedded tissue sections including immunohistochemistry; and immunoblotting. This position requires the ability to work independently and, if needed, to collaborate with other researcher and core laboratories.For more information, please see the lab’s website: https://www.luriechildrens.org/en/research/research-areas/laboratory-research/rowley-laboratory/.
The Advanced Center for Translational Genetic Medicine (ACT-GeM) is a new unit within the the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute aimed at bringing to fore cutting-edge discovery that can transform the lives of young patients and their families. Our work ranges from basic pathomechanisms of human genetic disease to the complementation of such observation toward the development of new therapeutic modalities.
Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to join a vibrant, multidisciplinary team to forward the mission of ACT-GeM, while at the same time gaining training that will help in launching their careers as independent investigators.
Functioning with progressively greater independence, Postdoctoral Associates design, organize and conduct highly specialized and advanced experiments using established scientific protocols and procedures and, in some cases, designing new protocols; publish results in research journals; assume general responsibility for scientific operations of the laboratory; provide supervision and guidance to junior technicians, students, and researchers.
