UCLA’s expertise in immunology ranges far and wide.
See a listing of open positions below, with contact information to learn more and apply:
Current UCLA faculty have developed best-in-class T-cell therapies for fighting and beating cancer and for world-leading transplant programs; they have made groundbreaking discoveries unlocking the genetics and cell biology of immunity and are building mathematical models of human health.
Here, now, we are harnessing the power of the immune system to cure disease.
A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Elaine F. Reed, in the Department of Pathology, University of California, Los Angeles (https://reedlab.dgsom.ucla.edu). The long-term goal of the research is to develop a detailed molecular map of the cross-talk between the innate and adaptive immune response during viral infection in high risk populations. The postdoctoral researcher will use modern systems immunology approaches including multiparameter immunephenotyping, transcriptome, cytokines and assessment of leukocyte functional status and statistical and computational biology to define altered host: pathogen interactions in COVID and influenza. The successful candidate will devote 30% effort to wet lab work and 70% effort to computational work.
The candidate will benefit from a highly collaborative and diverse team of investigators at UCLA including experts in renal transplantation, infectious disease, immune profiling, biostatistics, and computational immunology at the University of California Los Angeles.
The candidate should be a Ph.D. candidate or recent Ph.D. graduate or M.D./Ph.D. with a strong background in immunology, microbiology,cell, and/or molecular biology. Additionally, the candidate should be proficient in computational statistics with some experience coding in R, Unix, Python and/or MATLAB.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter with their research experience and interests, CV/resume, list of publications and names and contact information for 3 references to: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF05533

We are excited to announce that UCLA Immunogenetics Fellowship Training Program is now open for recruitment. The UCLA Immunogenetics Fellowship is the most prestigious director-training program offered in the field of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics by UCLA Immunogenetics Center, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA.
The fellow will work under the direct guidance of American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) qualified clinical laboratory directors and experienced staff at the UCLA Immunogenetics Center. The fellow will gain `hands on’ experience and perform clinical case reviews. The fellow will further conduct research within Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics in collaboration with the directors, research scientists, and laboratory personnel. Completion of this post-doctoral training program will provide the trainee with two years education and experience in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a qualified histocompatibility director under CLIA/CMS, United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) and ASHI standards.
The director trainee must have earned an MD or a PhD in Immunology, genetics or in a related biological science from an accredited institution. In addition to the education requirements, the applicant must have at least 2 years of full-time post-doctoral laboratory training or experience in Immunology, Histocompatibility, or Immunogenetics, a residency in clinical and/or anatomic pathology or other related medical specialty or have at least 2 years full-time post-doctoral training in directing or supervising high complexity testing in human Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics in an ASHI-accredited or approved laboratory. Reference letters documenting the level of clinical involvement are required.
Open July 1st, 2020 – June 30, 2022
If interested, please contact Dr. Jennifer Zhang at firstname.lastname@example.org
