The Sharma Lab at La Jolla Institute for Immunology in La Jolla, San Diego is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study immune metabolism in the context of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. 

Work in our lab focuses on applying cutting-edge mass spectrometry based metabolomics methods and flow cytometric, transcriptomic and proteomic
technologies in human samples and murine models to define functional metabolic targets for cancer immunotherapy. The ultimate goal of our research is to define unique immune-metabolic regulation that affects tumor immunity, which can be targeted for intelligent design of metabolic re-programming of the tumor. 

The successful candidate will have expertise in cancer immunology or immunology. Experience and interest in metabolism/metabolomics, molecular biology, transcriptomics, and data analysis is preferred. The successful applicant will also have excellent oral and written communication skills and collaborative abilities, as we work with collaborators at Moores Cancer Center, UCSD and other national and international institutes. A PhD or MD/PhD is required.
