The Moulton lab is looking for enthusiastic candidates to be part of a dynamic research team in the Division of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. We study cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the immunologic basis of autoimmune diseases with a focus on systemic lupus erythematosus.  We are specifically interested in determining aberrant molecular mechanisms of gene regulation and signaling in T cells from lupus patients and mice to identify new molecules for therapeutics and biomarkers. Research involves principles and techniques in cellular Immunology (tissue and cell isolation, cell culture, flow cytometry), biochemistry, and molecular biology (cloning, PCR, western blot, immunoprecipitation). The ideal candidate must have a strong background in Immunology, good academic track record and experience working with animals.


1. PhD in Immunology or related fields.

2. Experience with cellular immunology, flow cytometry, biochemistry and molecular biology principles and methodologies.

3. Experience working with animals and in vivo models.

4. Experience with data analysis and manuscript preparation.

5. Strong academic record and prior publication (minimum in press or under review).

6. Strong written and verbal communication skills.
