20 May 2021

A postdoctoral position in Drosophila immunity is available in the Michael Welte laboratory, University of Rochester - New York
http://www.sas.rochester.edu/bio/people/faculty/welte_michael/index.php
in collaboration with the Silverman laboratory, University of Massachusetts Medical School;
https://www.umassmed.edu/silverman-lab/

This is an NIH-funded project on the role of lipid droplets in Drosophila immunity. When Drosophila larvae are infected with bacteria, their macrophage-like blood cells (hemocytes) accumulate lipid droplets. This response depends critically on proteins of the Imd pathway, in particular the NF-kB transcription factor Relish. The successful postdoctoral candidate will uncover the mechanisms underlying immune-induced lipid droplet formation with the goal of determining the function of these lipid droplets specifically and the role of macrophage lipid metabolism in general.

PhD degree is required. Prior experience in Drosophila research is strongly preferred.

Contact Michael Welte (michael.welte@rochester.edu) and include your research interests and CV.
