The Paczesny Laboratory at Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking highly motivated candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellowship studying tumor immunology to treat myeloid malignancies. The major interests of the lab are discovering and validating new biomarkers in tumor immunology, generating new cell-based immunotherapies such as T9IL33 recently published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine and highlighted in the New England Journal of Medicine, as well as developing new small molecules based on discovery of novel targets.

In this position, the postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to develop and lead projects using several cutting-edge model systems including novel xenograft in vivo systems, and primary patient samples. The postdoctoral fellow will also gain extensive experience and training in proteomics, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation biology, and pre-clinical study development.

Successful applicants will have a PhD or MD/PhD with substantial hands-on research experience in immunology and/or cell biology or a related field; a strong publication record in recognized peer-reviewed journals; experience with multicolor flow cytometry and in immunology techniques including ELISAs, flow-based cytokine determination, cellular proliferation and cytotoxicity assays; experience with animal models of bone marrow transplantation; be meticulous at planning, executing, and organizing the results for large scale assays
