We are seeking a POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE to join the collaborative research group of Dr. Jeffrey D. Cirillo studying respiratory pathogenesis. Responsibilities include conducting independent research on SARS-CoV-2, mycobacterial and other respiratory pathogens and publication of results. Research will emphasize the molecular, cell biological, live animal molecular imaging and immunological characterization of virulence determinants in respiratory pathogens and their interactions with the host in humans, mice and guinea pigs.
Interested applicants should apply at the following link: https://tamus.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/TAMHSC_External/job/Bryan-TAMHSC/Postdoctoral-Research-Associate_R-029969-1. You will need to upload current Curriculum Vitae, cover letter, and three reference letters written to Dr. Jeffrey D. Cirillo.
Applicants should also have a record of productive experience in immunology, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology of pathogens, outstanding interpersonal skills, and excellent written and verbal communication. Responsibilities include: conducting independent research on SARS-CoV-2, mycobacterial and other respiratory pathogens and publication of results, assistance with preparation of manuscripts, grants, and publications of scientific data in peer-revised journals based on research, and assisting other members of the research team as needed. Lab members are also required to attend laboratory meetings, departmental seminars and journal club.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. or terminal professional degree (D.V.M. and/or M.D).

The conference will explore and discuss various aspects of the non-specific effects of vaccines, including their impact on neonates and infants, how generalisable and durable these effects are, the implications for geriatric and veterinary medicine, and why non-specific effects should differ between sexes and across the lifespan.

The title of this I&I International Seminar is:
“New factors required for lymphocyte development: in vivo models”
Venue: Merete Barker Auditorium, (Bldg. 1253-211 / Lake side lecture theatres)
Development of B and T lymphocytes depends on the DNA breaks and repair events known as V(D)J recombination. There are two molecular pathways involved in the DNA repair during the lymphocyte development, non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) and DNA damage response (DDR). Recently, new accessory NHEJ factors PAXX and Mri were reported. Deficiency for PAXX or Mri, however, had no obvious effect on the lymphocyte development. Applying genetic models, we found that PAXX and Mri are functionally redundant with another NHEJ factor, XLF. Moreover, combined deficiency for XLF/PAXX and XLF/Mri results in dramatic, although distinct, phenotypes. In addition, we found that multiple factors from the DDR pathway are required for specific stages of B cell development.
