Postdoctoral Research Fellow for Brain Cancer Immunotherapy

Postdoctoral Research Fellow for Brain Cancer Immunotherapy

We are searching for a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow with strong background in molecular biology and immunology at Laboratory of Brain Tumor Immunotherapy, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco. Our laboratory has long-standing and productive research projects directed toward development of innovative immunotherapy strategies for primary brain tumors. We are specifically interested in understanding the brain tumor immune-microenvironment and characterizing glioma-derived neoantigen epitopes as well as corresponding T cell receptors for development of novel immunotherapeutics. Our interdisciplinary studies utilize human genomics data, genetic engineering in animal models and recombinant viral gene vectors, and immunological methods, such as flow-cytometry, immunohistochemistry and T cell function assays.

The applicants must hold a Ph.D. level degree ideally in immunology, bioinformatics, genomics or molecular biology with at least one first-authored publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated, keen to acquire new knowledge and skills and eager to produce scientific publications. The candidate is expected to have strong organizational and record keeping skills to record experiment results and analyze data, as well as effective written communication skills to publish results.

To inquire please send a CV, a statement of research interest including description of experience in immunology, molecular biology, bioinformatics or genetics, and contact information of three references.
