Post-doctoral Position in Antigen Presentation

The laboratory of Dr. J. Magarian Blander at Weill Cornell is seeking post-doctoral candidates to study antigen presentation in murine and human dendritic cells. Please refer to our most recent work on this topic.
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867414008010http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/imr.12428/fullhttps://www.annualreviews.org/doi/abs/10.1146/annurev-immunol-041015-055523
Specific projects include:

  1. Define the pathways of antigen presentation of commensal microbiota-derived peptides by intestinal dendritic cells.
  2. Delineate the endocytic traffic and innate Toll-like receptor signals that regulate cross-presentation.
  3. Characterize cross-presentation during infection with viruses that evade CD8 T cell activation.


A PhD or equivalent in Immunology or Cell Biology is required. Relevant backgrounds include signal transduction, vesicular and membrane traffic, myeloid cell biology, and antigen presentation. Technical expertise in two or more of the following areas is highly desirable: multi-parameter flow cytometry, protein biochemistry, molecular biology, genome editing in primary cells, and confocal/high resolution fluorescence microscopy.

The successful applicants will benefit from unique university environment and unparalleled scientific opportunities provided by the collaborative Tri-Institutional research programs of Weill Cornell Medical College, The Rockefeller University, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Please send a CV, research statement, and contact information of three references to Dr. Blander (jmblander@med.cornell.edu).
