Join the Lab

The Rothenberg CURED Lab at Cincinnati Children’s, supported by the Campaign Urging Research for Eosinophilic Diseases (CURED), has openings for several postdoctoral fellows, particularly focused on genetics, genomics, chemistry and immunology. There are also opportunities for summer research. Visiting scientists and sabbaticals are welcome. For further information about the Rothenberg CURED Lab's research, visit our Current Projects page.

Research in the Division of Allergy and Immunology

The research is focused on elucidating the mechanisms of allergic responses, especially in mucosal tissues such as the lung and the gastrointestinal tract. The goal of the research is to understand the basis of allergic diseases and to identify novel pharmaceutical targets for the treatment of patients with eosinophilic diseases including eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders, hypereosinophilic syndromes, asthma and food allergies. The research focuses on molecular biology, genetics, genomics, biochemistry, signal transduction and immunology. High-impact publications and collaborative research are prioritized.

The division has a high-energy, dynamic and interactive environment. We are interested in recruiting self-motivated individuals with the drive to succeed and the desire to be competitive at the international level. Candidates with a strong background in immunology, molecular biology, informatics, genomics, cellular biology and signal transduction are encouraged to apply.

Open Positions

Division of Allergy / Immunology
Bioinformatics / Molecular Biology

JOB DESCRIPTION: A Research Fellow position is available immediately in Professor Marc Rothenberg’s laboratory. The Rothenberg lab is focused on elucidating the mechanisms of allergic responses especially in a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. The laboratory has identified and biologically characterized several critical pathways that regulate allergic responses. The fellow will use NGS data (including whole exome analysis, genome wide association studies, RNA sequencing (single cell and whole tissue) and associated meta-data) and bioinformatics strategies to study the genetic basis of allergic responses. A high degree of collaborative research to establish causal mechanism is in place.

EDUCATION / WORK EXPERIENCE: Ph.D. in related discipline, MD, or equivalent required. Candidates must have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, or equivalent), along with prior genetic and genomics experience, particularly working with next generation sequencing data and GWAS studies. The ideal candidate will have an excellent understanding of biological systems and processes, particularly immunology. Experience with molecular biology is preferred. Excellent written, verbal and communications skills are crucial. For consideration, please send a CV, a brief statement of scientific / research interests, and contact information for three references to:
