Graduate students: If you are interests in doing a PhD at the intersection of population genetics, functional genomics and immunology our lab might be the right place for you. I am able to take PhD students through different graduate programs at the University of Chicago including Genetics, Genomics and Systems Biology, Human Genetics and the Committee on Immunology. Most projects in the lab involve a combination of cell culture/immunology work with the collection and analysis of genetic/genomic data. Thus, we can take both wet-lab and dry-lab students.
Post-doctoral fellow: We are always looking for motivated people to join the lab. Our group studies the genetic basis of variation in the human immune response, as well as the evolution of differences in the immune response between humans and other primates. The exact projects for prospective postdocs are flexible and applicants are encouraged to propose their own projects, as long as they fit within the lab’s general interests (see Research section).
Our lab offers a congenial research environment complemented by the rich academic milieu of the University of Chicago, particularly in the departments of Genetic Medicine, Human Genetics, and Ecology and Evolution. Postdocs in our lab are encouraged to develop collaborations with other groups and to start developing an independent research program. If you are interested in discussing postdoctoral opportunities drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please send me your CV, briefly explain your research experience, why you are interested in the lab, and what you would like to study.
Two Research Assistant/Technician positions: We have two openings at the moment. Details on the positions and the link to apply can be found here.
Lab Manager: We are looking for a self-motivated, research focused individual to join the Barreiro lab as the Lab Manager. This is an exciting opportunity to work in the Barreiro lab and study the genetic and epigenetic basis of inter-individual variation in immune responses and susceptibility to disease. As Lab Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the wet lab, a knowledge resource, and the key to keeping the lab running smoothly. Our lab collaborates with many other research/medical labs and this position is typically the point of contact for our collaborators. If you are interested please apply here .
