Senior Faculty Position

The Center for Immunology & Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College invites applications for a tenure-track Associate/Full Professor position from individuals with demonstrated research productivity and interest in translational research. Applicants for this senior faculty position should have an MD, MD/PhD or PhD, and lead an internationally-recognized research program in immunology and/or host-pathogen interactions with particular emphasis on disease mechanisms in humans. Successful candidates will also demonstrate strong communication skills and an ability to excel in collaborative research endeavors. The position will have a critical role in the development of joint research programs between the Interdisciplinary Research Center in Immunology and Microbial Disease and the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. This position will also have broad responsibility for leading a program for training of doctoral and physician research scientists emphasizing host-pathogen interactions. Joint appointments in divisions of clinical interest are encouraged.

Postdoctoral Position


A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Kate MacNamara to study stress-induced hematopoiesis in murine models of infection and disease. Our research is aimed at clarifying the mechanisms leading to functional changes in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells during infection. Experience in immunology, cell biology, microbiology, and/or stem cell biology required, and experience working with murine models of infection preferred.  Looking for a highly motivated, independent, and creative thinker who has strong communication and organization skills. Expertise in flow cytometry, immunofluoresence, microscopy, and imaging is an advantage. Albany Medical College has a close relationship with the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Laboratories, providing a diverse environment rich in infectious disease expertise.  Albany is a mid-sized city within the upstate New York Capital Region, and has easy access to Boston, New York City, and the Adirondack and Berkshire Mountains.
