Position Description:

Position Title: Postdoctoral Fellow

Purpose: An NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. William Drobyski in the Departments of Medicine and Microbiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin that is focused on transplantation immunology with a specific emphasis on the immunobiology of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation and the pathophysiology of graft versus host disease (GVHD).

Specific areas of interest in include inflammatory cytokine networks that contribute to GVHD, inflammatory cytokine signaling and regulatory pathways that impact the development of tolerance, modulate anti-leukemic responses, and induce pathological damage particularly within the gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system using genetically modified mouse models, flow cytometry, q-PCR, RNA-seq, western blot, single cell RNA seq, and other immunological techniques. Recent publications include Journal of Clinical Investigation 2016; 126: 3541-3555, Blood 2018; 132(4): 435-447, Nature Communications 2018; 9(1): 5037; Blood 2020; 135(8): 568-581 and Blood 2021; 137(9): 1241-1255.

Characteristics of a postdoctoral appointment:

It is expected that postdocs at MCW, with the assistance of their supervisor, will:

  • Establish an individual development plan (IDP) that incorporates equally the postdoc's career and training goals and the mentor's research goals.
  • Pursue basic, clinical, or translational projects so long as effort is focused primarily on research.
  • Publish results of the postdoc's research and scholarship during their appointment.
  • The postdoctoral appointment is temporary by nature, the aggregate amount of time spent as a postdoc is recommended to not exceed five years (not including family medical leave or maternity/paternity leave).
  • As postdocs are important members of the host institution's community, appropriate levels of compensation, health care, and other benefits commensurate with their essential status should be afforded, independent of the postdoc's source of funding.
