The Laboratory of Asthma and Lung Inflammation conducts research aimed at identifying new treatments for patients with severe asthma. To accomplish this goal, we utilize experimental murine asthma models to discover new mechanisms of disease pathogenesis, which may then be developed into novel targets for therapeutic interventions. This approach has recently identified novel roles for apolipoprotein E and apolipoprotein A-I in the pathogenesis and treatment of asthma. Additional novel pathways that mediate asthma pathogenesis are under study.

We are recruiting a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with a strong work ethic and good communication skills to investigate novel mechanisms of asthma pathogenesis. Candidates should have obtained a Ph.D. or M.D. degree (or equivalent) and have less than 5 years of relevant post-doctoral level experience.
The candidate should have a strong background in murine models. Additional expertise in molecular and cell biology, as well as biochemistry, is desirable.

Interested individuals should send an email cover letter including research interests, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to:

Stewart J. Levine, M.D.
Chief, Laboratory of Asthma and Lung Inflammation
Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Branch, NHLBI
Building 10, Room 6D03, MSC 1590
