Scholarship Description:

The Wen lab at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher or Ph.D students to join our efforts in profiling immune system responses to inflammation following cardiovascular injuries. Qualified applicants will have multiple opportunities to perform cutting-edge immunological research and collaborate with our interdisciplinary team of a NIH-funded cardiovascular research center focusing on intercellular and intracellular signaling pathways.


Our lab has a broad interest in studying how the immune system functions, involving especially neutrophils in inflammation. The primary focus is to apply biosensors and transgenic mouse models to directly visualize immune cell recruitment and function during inflammation, infection and tissue injury in vitro and in vivo. We study inflammatory responses and signaling at molecular, cellular and whole organism levels using state-of-the-art technology, including genome editing, multi-color flow cytometry, TIRF microcopy, intravital imaging, resonant-scanning confocal, and FRET microscopy.

 Available Subjects:

  •  immunology, molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field

Eligibility criteria:

  • Biochemistry and molecular biology
  • Gene editing and genomic engineering
  • Multi-color flow cytometry
  • Transgenic mouse models 
  • Lentiviral and retroviral gene delivery
  • Bone marrow transplantation
  • Biosensors/probes
  • Molecular structure/function analysis
  • Microfluidics
  • High-resolution imaging (confocal, super-resolution imaging, live-cell imaging, molecular tracking, TIRF microscopy, FRET microscopy and intravital imaging).

Application Procedure:

Interested individuals are encouraged to submit an application with CV and a brief summary of research interest to the PI:      Lai Wen, Ph.D. ([email protected]).
