The Buckner Lab studies the following autoimmune diseases: type 1 diabetes (T1D), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS), systemic lupus erythematosus, and relapsing polychondritis. They have extensive experience in MHC class II tetramers, T cell cloning, T and B cell functional assays and phenotyping of human lymphocytes.
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to conduct research focused on identifying the underlying mechanisms by which the adaptive immune response to self-antigens becomes pathogenic in the setting of human autoimmune disease.
This research uses human samples from subjects with autoimmune disease including rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematous, and relapsing polychondritis. Study design and implementation as well as collaboration within and between labs.
