Research Fellow - Immunology

Why Mayo Clinic

Position description
A Research Fellow position is open in the research laboratory of Dr. J. J. Goronzy in the Immunology Department of Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. The laboratory is interested in the effect of age on the ability to generate adaptive immune responses. In particular, the mechanisms of T cell aging and T cell memory generation after vaccination. The objective of the current project is to use system biology tools to interrogate human antigen-specific T cells as they change with T cell differentiation after vaccination or in chronic and latent infections. Projects include studies with translational as well as mechanistic molecular scope. As a Research Fellow in this role you will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills in the design and execution of experiments as well as in data analysis and the writing of manuscripts and grants.
