Postdoctoral Position in Investigative Dermatology

A two-three year postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Investigative Dermatology at Rockefeller University, working with Drs. Emma Guttman and James Krueger. The research will involve studying the immune and barrier abnormalities underlying atopic dermatitis, as well as the reversal of atopic dermatitis disease with several novel biologic therapies targeting main immune axes involved in the disease that might revolutionize treatment of atopic dermatitis, and understanding of the disease. The postdoc is truly translational in its nature. The work will be a collaboration between Mount Sinai Dermatology and Immunology Institute and the Rockefeller University, but the laboratory portion will be mainly done at the Rockefeller University, although the position will be paid by Mount Sinai or from a collaborative grant between the institutions.

The Laboratory of Investigative Dermatology is an established lab at the Rockefeller University campus on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The Mount Sinai Immunology Institute and dermatology departments are also located on the Upper East Side. Dr. Guttman is an expert in atopic dermatitis research and her research identified a novel T-cell subset in humans, T22, that hold a potential therapeutic promise for this disease. For this discovery, and the promise it holds for advancing treatments for atopic eczema, a disease affecting many patients worldwide, Dr. Guttman received the Young Investigator Award of the American Academy of Dermatology.

The ideal candidate for the position will have a strong background in immunology, as well as an interest in dermatology, and atopic dermatitis/eczema in particular, and want to participate in this exciting time with the potential of revolutionizing the known pathways and treatments for this disease. Experience in flow cytometry, tissue culture, molecular biology and immunohistochemistry preferred. Strong publications from Ph.D. are highly preferred.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The position is available immediately.

To apply, please submit the following items to Dr Emma Guttman at:

  • CV
  • Contact information for two to three references
  • A short cover letter describing your background and research interests (not more than one page)
