We are looking for
1. Postdoctoral Researcher, 2. Graduate Student, and 3. Research Assistant (with master’s or bachelor’s degree) positions in Immunology.
The Wang Lab at the Institute of Molecular Biology of Academia Sinica (Taiwan) is actively recruiting researchers at different levels, including postdocs, Ph.D. students, and research assistants. We are looking for highly motivated and creative candidates that can fit into our vibrant, collaborative, and fun lab environment. Experience and training in the backgrounds of immunology, cell biology, and molecular biology are preferred.
The Wang Lab was established in the Institute of Molecular Biology of Academia Sinica in October 2022. The lab is well-funded by generous startup funds. Our lab is interested in a fundamental biological question of how immune homeostasis is achieved in tissue barriers. We study how cells of the immune system adapt to environmental factors and acquire immune-modulatory functions to support tissue homeostasis. These studies will advance our understanding of mechanisms that render regulatory functions to tissue-resident immune cells and eventually prevent the undesirable immune responses which may lead to allergies, autoimmune disorders, recurrent infections, and increased risks of cancer. Currently, our research interests include 1) B cell tolerance in the meninges. 2) Meningeal B cells in neurodegeneration diseases. 3) Eosinophils and Group 3 innate lymphoid cells in host defense and mucosal immunity.
Applicants are expected to hold a Ph.D. degree for a postdoctoral position, or a master’s/bachelor’s degree for a research assistant position at the start date. Candidates with experience in a wide range of molecular and cellular techniques, including but not limited to FACS analysis, cell culture, and molecular cloning are encouraged to apply. Experience with mouse models of diseases and mouse breeding is advantageous. Salary will be commensurate with experience and will adhere to Academia Sinica institutional guidelines.
