Post-Doctoral Researchers x 4 (Molecular Immunology) - Department of Biology

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary University goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued.

Applications are invited from postdoctoral researchers to conduct research within the Molecular Immunology Laboratory of Prof. Paul Moynagh. The laboratory is interested in innate immune signalling and its relevance to inflammatory diseases. These posts are funded by the financial support of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) under Grant Number SFI/16/IA/4622. Research in the Moynagh lab aims to explore, at the molecular, cellular and whole organism levels, how novel proteins regulate ubiquitination pathways in innate immunity and how this relates to physiology and pathophysiology. The research will combine state-of-the-art approaches in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, innate immune signalling, genetic and disease models.

More information on the research efforts of Prof, Moynagh’s laboratory can be obtained from the following publications (Yang et al. (2014) Immunity 41:973-987; Yang et al (2013) Nature Immunology 14:927-936; Moynagh (2014) Nature Reviews Immunology 14:122-131).
