The Simon laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UC Davis is seeking PhDs and MD/PhDs who are interested in studying innate immunity at the molecular and cellular scale using optical imaging and microfluidics. Prospective candidates training background may include but are not limited to: (1) Immunology, (2) Biophysics/Biochemistry/Bioengineering, and (3) Molecular biology. Preference will be given to applicants with strong hands-on experience and knowledge in microscopy, flow cytometry, cell biology, and microfabrication based lab-chip technology, as well as strong data analysis/modeling skills. We are seeking highly self-motivated individuals rather than candidates with specific research areas/skills. All PhDs and MD/ PhDs with good scientific accomplishment are encouraged to apply. We offer a dynamic, interdisciplinary, and collaborative environment to support a career in immune-biology and biomedical engineering.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae including list of publications, and contact information for three references to:
