POSTDOCTORAL research fellowships in an active program composed of basic
scientists and clinicians. Excellent core facilities and interactive
environment. Research focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms
involved in cell-mediated autoimmunity. The goal is to understand the
development, maintenance and breakdown, of self-tolerance to tissue
antigens, and to use that information for development of immunotherapeutic
strategies. The questions are studied using animal models of anti-retinal
autoimmunity. Approaches and conclusions are largely generalizable to
other organ-specific autoimmune diseases. For more information about the
Laboratory visit our Web pages at:

Applicant must have broad experience in cellular immunology, such as: long
term T cell culture, cell proliferation assays, cytokine assays, ELISA,
ELISPOT, etc. Experience in molecular methodologies an asset.

2.  MOLECULAR IMMUNOLOGY  - Aailable April 1997
Applicant must have experience in RNA and DNA based methods, including
PCR, in situ hybridization, DNA cloning, expression systems (prokaryotic
and eukaryotic), etc. Experience in cellular immunology an asset.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree COMPLETED WITHIN THE PAST 5
