Structural biology of key innate cell regulation check-points on type-I IFN response and myeloid survival.

The Montaner and Skordalakes Laboratories at The Wistar Institute are looking for a highly-motivated postdoctoral fellow to study immune responses against infectious disease and cancer, which involve the early involvement of myeloid cells and type I interferon responses. We have established clinical and experimental evidence that regulation of two innate targets can impact antiviral resistance as well as anti-tumor responses. The project will focus on defining these target protein interaction sites. This position will work jointly under direction of Dr. Emmanuel Skordalakes for structural focus and Dr. Luis Montaner for innate cell biology.

The preferred candidate is a recent PhD/DPhil recipient with a background in: structural biology, protein expression, and molecular/cellular biology.  Experience with structural and molecular biology, molecular screening, bioinformatics, microscopy, and flow cytometry are a plus.  Strong candidates will have at least one-two publications in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals.

Well-qualified candidates should submit a PDF of your Curriculum Vitae and three references to Ms. Beth Peterson,

The Wistar Institute is located in the University City area of Philadelphia, in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania Campus.
