LJI T32 Immunology Training Program for US Citizen and Underrepresented Minority Postdoctoral Fellows 

Program Title: Training in Immunological Mechanisms
Grant Number: T32 AI125179
Sponsor: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the NIH (NIAID)

La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI; http://www.lji.org) offers a research training program for postdoctoral scientists that are US citizens or non-citizen permanent residents including underrepresented minorities. The program will provide training in immunological mechanisms related to development and treatment of Autoimmune, Inflammatory, and Infectious Disease and Cancer. The program involves 21 faculty members from LJI whose expertise is in immune cell function that relates to inflammatory diseases such as diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, atherosclerosis, and atopic dermatitis; infectious diseases such as dengue, zika, cytomegalovirus, coronavirus, and tuberculosis; and immunotherapy of cancer. 


Eligibility:

  • A United States citizen, or a non-citizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess an Alien Registration Receipt Card (1-151 or 1-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident.
  • PhD, MD and MD/PhD scientists interested in basic and applied research of the immune system
  • Commitment to pursue basic research training
  • Underrepresented minority US citizens or permanent residents are welcomed and will be given special consideration


How To Apply:
Positions are available immediately. Interested persons should submit a cover letter stating career goals, plus their curriculum vitae, and the names of at least 3 professional references. Applications should indicate the faculty mentors whose research is in line with the goals of the trainee. Early application is encouraged as we have a rolling review and admissions policy.
