The Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is currently recruiting for a full-time postdoctoral position.

This position is available immediately in the Agak Laboratory.

A postdoctoral scholar position is available for a highly motivated scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles to focus on Investigative dermatology. Our group is highly collaborative with basic programs in Immunology, Biochemistry and Proteomics at UCLA and deeply integrated into the clinical translational groups at our Medical center. Our approach will combine scRNA-seq analyses of cells and metagenomic analysis of the skin microbiome to define how strain-specific differences influence the immune responses at the site of disease.

The ideal candidate will be able to independently develop, guide, and complete research projects.

  • Recent Ph.D. or M.D. degrees
  • Applicants need to be self-motivated, fast learners, critical thinkers, and enthusiastic about science and medicine.
  • Demonstrated ability to work as part of a team and independently.
  • Highly proficient in a variety of molecular and cellular biology techniques and have strong fundamental knowledge of Biochemistry.
  • Strong ability to problem solve and troubleshoot experiments.
  • Performing basic molecular biology techniques, nucleic acid isolation, PCR, and protein expression analysis.
  • Experience with Confocal microscopy and/or live imaging
  • Experience with primary cell cultures
