Our laboratory investigates immune regulation and modulation in the skin utilizing basic and translational research. We have two main areas of investigation:
- Understanding how skin-resident immune cells regulate barrier function and host defense in the skin
- Understanding how skin immune cells drive cutaneous inflammation relevant to inflammatory skin diseases and cancer immunity
Currently we are not recruiting!
….However, I welcome applicants with fellowship support or other forms of self-supported funding. The candidate should have excellent written and communication skills, at least one peer-reviewed first-author publication, and should possess experience in 3 of the following research areas and techniques: wound helaing, skin immunobiology, immunology, dendritic cells/macrophages, epithelial stem cell biology, 5-8 color-flow cytometry, qPCR, immunofluorescence staining. Applicants should submit electronically as one pdf a 1-page letter of interest, curriculum vitae (max. 4 pages including publication list), and the names of three recent references to Dr. Amanda MacLeod (email@example.com).
Interested Duke medical and PhD rotation/graduate students and MD/PhD trainees with interest in skin immunology should contact me directly via email and should include a CV and brief Summary of prior research experience.
