Postdoctoral position - Immunology

A postdoctoral position 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 and other myeloid cells influence the development of immunity and cancer. We take a broad and multidisciplinary approach, which spans basic biology and translational medicine, to address complex questions that have important implications for human health.

Currently projects are available to decipher the molecular regulation of dendritic cell subsets function and differentiation using novel approaches, such as CRISPR Cas9 and genomic approaches. The work will contribute to our overall goal of advancing novel immunotherapy strategies for cancer and inflammatory disease.

A background on our research can be found by reading some of our recent papers.
