A postdoctoral position for a highly motivated researcher is available to join the lab of Dr. Eynav Klechevsky at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The Klechevsky lab is working to understand how dendritic cells influence the development of immunity and cancer. We take a broad and multidisciplinary approach, which spans basic biology and translational medicine, to address the role of novel dendritic cell genes and receptors to improve basic understanding of Dendritic Cell biology, and facilitate the development of improved diagnostics, vaccines and immunotherapeutics. Background on our research can be found by reading some of our recent papers. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=klechevsky
