Applicant will perform bone marrow transplants on mice and evaluate the role of specific groups of B cells in the occurrence of chronic GVHD. Candidates will be expected to be able to perform 5-8 color flow cytometry, to characterize immune cells after transplantation by ELISA, IC cytokine staining, QPCR, and to use massive parallel sequencing to characterize adaptive immune receptors.

Applicants should have a significant understanding of B cell development and be able to use animal models to generate chronic GVHD. Applicants must be well versed in cellular and molecular immunology. This includes significant experience performing flow cytometry, QPCR, Assays to measure cytokines and chemokines in various tissues and the ability to isolate and characterize specific immune populations in tissues after transplant. Additionally applicants should have an in depth knowledge of B cell development and function.All applicants must have completed a MD, MD/PHD or PHD degree or have a degree equivalent.

Primary duties will be in support of interagency activities for global, national, and regional assessments of climate change and relevant research supporting the value chain from data products to societal benefits. Anticipated activities and research studies will include understanding of observed changes in environmental parameters, analysis of future projected changes in these parameters, and linkages to environmental and social impacts, as well as development of adaptive pathways. Duties & Responsibilities: The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will contribute to climate science analyses and targeted cutting-edge research on topics important to the federally mandated quadrennial National Climate Assessment as well as associated sustained assessment activities. This will include analysis of new climate model simulations, particularly the CMIP6 suite that is currently under development, new statistically downscaled datasets, and observational datasets including in situ and remote observations and reanalyses. Targeted research topics may include increased process understanding of potential future changes in regional temperature variability, precipitation, drought, extreme weather and climate events, new approaches to downscaling of climate projections, impacts, and important climate modes of variability (e.g., El-Nino Southern Oscillation, Pacific Decadal Oscillation, Atlantic Decadal Oscillation, North Atlantic Oscillation). Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., M.D., D.V.M., Sc.D.) in appropriate field awarded no more than five (5) years from initial date of postdoctoral appointment. -Ph.D. in Earth or Environmental Science (atmospheric science, geography, etc.), engineering, or related field -Completion of Ph.D. by start date of appointment -Experience with analysis of large observational and/or model climate datasets -Demonstrated oral and written communication skills -Personal enthusiasm for the project goals -Ability to multitask and meet deadlines -Must be able to work independently as well as make positive team contributions.
