    Abstract
    Inflammatory and infectious diseases are a complex and heterogeneous group of diseases that affect more than 10% of the world population. The current options for treating inflammatory diseases are still limited and in some cases ineffective due to limited understanding of their underlying mechanisms. The Center for Research on Inflammatory Diseases (CRID) performs integrative and translational research to generate scientific knowledge and to identify new therapeutic targets for inflammatory diseases. The overall objective of the CRID is to identify, validate and target novel biological pathways involved in inflammatory processes. The specific goal of the Center will be to advance the pathophysiological understanding of inflammatory diseases including infectious diseases. The general goal of the CRID is to identify, validate and target specific processes related to inflammatory diseases. The post-doctoral fellow may be familiar with techniques including Cellular and Molecular Biology and/or Biochemistry and/or Imaging and may dedicate his/her efforts to identify novel genes and signaling pathways involved in host cell signaling in response to host cell infection with intracellular pathogens.

    This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The selected candidate will receive a FAPESP's Post-Doctoral fellowship in the amount of R$ 6.819,30 monthly and a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
