Applications are sought for position of Post-doctoral Researcher to conduct research within the Allergy, Inflammation & Remodelling Research (AIRR) Laboratory of Dr. Joanne Masterson.

This post is funded by the financial support of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). Research in the AIRR lab aims to explore mechanisms of disease combining molecular, cellular and whole organism approaches, bridging our knowledge of developmental and environmental signals that may regulate epithelial cell status and function, and how these processes relate to physiology and pathophysiology in EGIDs such as Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

The research will combine state-of-the-art approaches in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, transcriptomics, immune signalling, mouse models and patient specimens with the aim of defining novel therapeutic targets.
