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.
The laboratories of Dr. Elaine Reed (Immunogenetics Center, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine) and Dr. Enrique Rozengurt (Signal Transduction Laboratory, Department of Medicine) in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA are seeking applications for full-time Postdoctoral Positions.
The focus of the projects will be to study the mechanisms of HLA class I and class II antibody-mediated graft injury leading to chronic antibody-mediated rejection (cAMR) with the aim of identifying potential therapeutic targets to prevent cAMR. These studies will include: 1) The role of the YAP/TAZ transcriptional program in promoting the proliferation and migration of endothelial cells (ECs) in response to HLA donor specific antibodies. 2) To investigate the mechanism(s) by which statins inhibit YAP function, proliferation and migration of ECs. 3) Characterize the impact of statins on YAP activity and cAMR in vivo using a novel model of heart graft allograft that develop transplant vasculopathy (TV).
The candidate, a recent PhD, MD or DVM, must be enthusiastic, have strong written and oral communication skills, be highly motivated, intellectually creative, able to work independently, and function well as part of a team. Candidates will be expected to contribute to ongoing projects and expand novel independent research projects in a collaborative research environment.

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

The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is currently inviting applications for Group Leaders. We are particularly interested in applications from candidates with ambitious research programs that interrogate the cellular and molecular networks underlying tissue health, disease and oncogenesis. Immunology, Cancer Immunology, Cancer Biology and Biological Circuits are areas of interest. Applications are sought from researchers at all levels.
The La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI) invites early- to mid-career applicants to apply for a tenure-track faculty position to add to our research program in immunology. Applicants must have an outstanding record of scientifc ability evidenced by a strong publication record and/or competitive funding.
Applicants should electronically submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, scienti?c achievements, and a detailed research plan to: email@example.com.
The TRIUMPH Postdoctoral Fellowship provides training in clinical and translational research for Ph.D.-trained individuals. The immediate goal of this program is to recruit talented and productive Ph.D.s from top graduate programs to provide continued training in clinical and/or translational cancer research through didactic coursework, clinical rotations, and unique, interdisciplinary mentorships. A long term goal of this program is to produce translational scientists who can be teamed with suitable physician scientists to PI a translational research laboratory.
The training that this program provides will produce translational scientists that can be paired with physician scientists to lead unique and well designed translational and clinical research projects.
