Striepen lab looking for: postdoctoral fellows & experienced lab coordinator

Boris Striepen is looking to fill postdoctoral positions in his lab at UPenn. These positions are associated with a new Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded effort to map Cryptosporidium metabolism and to define essential aspects through a variety of genetic strategies. These include gene specific studies as well as genome-wide experiments. Cryptosporidium is an important disease, a very interesting pathogen and Striepen lab has assembled powerful genetic tools (most of which are unpublished). They settled in nicely at Penn and just made the first batch of transgenic crypto in their new home. 


Contact Boris Striepen by e-mail with a CV, a statement of interests, and the names of three references. More details in the attached PDF file.


Assistant Professor - Protective Immunity Division at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia seek candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the tenure track. Responsibilities include establishing a research program that leverages innovative experimental methodology, computational approaches, and/or molecular tools to understand immune system development, immune responses to microorganisms, mucosal immunology or fundamental immune mechanisms that support the maintenance of health. We are particularly interested in candidates who will apply these basic paradigms towards understanding host pathogen interactions and immune-mediated disease in developing immune systems. Applicants must have an Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in education and research.

Teaching and mentoring of graduate students and medical students is an integral component of this position. Applicants must have a clear record of productivity and ingenuity, and high likelihood of securing extramural funding. The position is affiliated with the Institute for Immunology at the University of Pennsylvania and the newly established Protective Immunity Division at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The recruitment is part of a campus-wide initiative to promote novel immunologic strategies for preventing and treating infectious and immune mediated diseases. The environment for collaborative research within the IFI and across Departments, Schools, and Centers on the University of Pennsylvania/CHOP campus is outstanding.

A generous recruitment package and lab space will be provided, together with excellent institutional and core research resources.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.

The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/Women/Individuals with disabilities/Protected Veterans are encouraged to apply.
