Postdoctoral Fellow - Batsuli Laboratory

Postdoctoral Training Position Job Description: An opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the laboratory of Dr. Glaivy Batsuli in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hematology, Oncology, Stem Cell Transplantation, and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University. The Batsuli laboratory focuses on elucidating mechanisms of the immune response to blood coagulation proteins deficient in patients with inherited bleeding disorders, specifically hemophilia. Our lab seeks to better understand the interaction of factor proteins with antigen presenting cells that result in antibody development against factor replacement therapies in order to develop therapeutic strategies that evade these immune responses and induce tolerance.  

The applicant will have the opportunity to lead interdisciplinary research projects and work in a highly collaborative environment committed to team science that will include other collaborating scientists, physicians, postdocs, technicians, and students. There will be additional opportunities for training incoming students and other trainees.  

This position is for a highly motivated individual with a strong background in immunology. The successful candidate will conduct projects focused on evaluating immune cell signatures with factor administration using transgenic mouse models and mouse models of hemophilia. Additionally, a translational project utilizing flow cytometry and transcriptomic tools will be performed to characterize immune cell gene signatures and subsets in patient samples following factor exposure to accompany the murine studies. We utilize biochemical assays (ELISA, clotting assay, electrophoresis, surface plasmon resonance), protein production & purification, mammalian cell lines, transplantation & adoptive transfer experiments, FACS/flow cytometry, and single cell transcriptomics (single-cell RNA seq and CITE-seq).

Required Qualifications:

  • This position is for an individual with a PhD in immunology, molecular biology, biology, or biochemistry. The candidate should have expertise in immunology. 
  • Experience in animal handling is strongly preferred in addition to frequently used laboratory techniques: cell culture, ELISA, FACS/flow cytometry, and RNA sequencing.
  • Bioinformatics knowledge would be helpful for sequencing experiments but is not required.
  • The candidate is expected to work independently and as part of a team. • Self-initiative and motivation, excellent communication, teamwork, data processing, written and oral presentation and problem-solving skills are desired.
  • English proficiency is required.

Required Application Materials:  

  • Cover letter including statement of interest, research experience, and career goals
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Contact information for 3 recent references

How to Apply:

To apply, applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and contact information of references by email to Glaivy Batsuli, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hematology, Oncology, Stem Cell Transplantation, and Regenerative Medicine. Email: [email protected].
