Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Dr. Renren Wen at the Versiti Blood Research Institute (Milwaukee, WI)

We are seeking highly self-motivated candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the laboratory of Dr. Renren Wen (, an NIH-funded lab at Versiti Blood Research Institute ( 

The lab mainly studies the crosstalk between the immune and coagulation systems in health and disease states. The current focus of the lab is on learning how antibodies regulate the function of platelets and other cells involved in the coagulation system, the structural features of these antibodies, and the prevalence, ontogeny, activation, and differentiation of the host B cells that make such antibodies in healthy people, and patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (HIT) and COVID-19. Studies will be performed in both human and mouse systems using biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics techniques to understand the molecular pathogenesis underlying antibody-mediated thrombotic complications in HIT and COVID-19 and develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools for these conditions. 

Qualified applicants should have strong knowledge and research experience in immunology (B-cell and monocyte/macrophage preferred) or vascular biology (platelet and monocyte/macrophage preferred) and technical skills in biochemistry and cell and molecular biology. Candidates who received their PhD recently with an excellent publication record are welcome to apply. Applicants must be able to work independently and have excellent written and oral communication skills in English. The position offers a competitive salary and an excellent training environment for career development.

0 – 5 years of postdoctoral training
Ph.D. required

The BRI is located adjacent to the Medical College of Wisconsin on the campus of the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC), which is also home to Milwaukee's major teaching hospitals, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (CHW) and Froedtert Hospital (FH). The proximity of the BRI to the basic and clinical research programs promotes a productive collaboration environment. We provide competitive salaries and benefits for postdoctoral fellows.

Interested applicants should send their application to Dr. Renren Wen ( and attach 1) a cover letter stating research accomplishments, research interests, and career goals, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a list of three references with contact information including mailing and E-mail address, and phone number.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroimmunology at NIAID

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports a global program of research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. The Laboratory of Clinical Immunology and Microbiology within the NIAID Division of Intramural Research is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellow position within the Neuroimmunological Diseases Section. This position will offer a unique opportunity to gain mechanistic understanding of interactions between cells of the immune system and central nervous system (CNS) under inflammatory/infectious conditions using cerebral organoids derived from induced pluripotent stem cells from human subjects with neuroimmunological or neuroinflammatory diseases.

The project arose from extensive proteomic studies of cerebrospinal fluids from humans with neuroimmunological diseases that identified likely causal pathways of CNS tissue destruction and repair. This project involves collaboration between several NIAID laboratories, including the Rocky Mountain Laboratories studying neuroinfectious diseases and the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF).


  • PhD in immunology, neuroscience, cell biology, or related disciplines
  • A record of relevant, high-quality publications
  • Interest in multidisciplinary research and neuroimmune interactions
  • Ability to travel between NIAID facilities in Bethesda, MD, Hamilton, MT, and the NYSCF in New York City, NY

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with cell culture of primary CNS cells, flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and/or molecular biology
  • Experience with bioinformatics, R/Python/MATLAB

To apply, interested candidates should send the following to Dr. Bibi Bielekova at

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Bibliography
  • Three references, including contact information
  • A short statement about their skill set and research interests (no more than two pages)
