The UCLA Division of NanoMedicine and California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at the University of California, Los Angeles are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join a team of highly integrated scientists exploring the use of engineered nanomaterials for cancer chemotherapy and chemo-immunotherapy applications.  We are looking for an individual with hands-on experience in the use of nanomaterials for drug delivery and tumor immunology applications.

Professor Andre Nel is looking for a highly qualified Postdoctoral Researcher with superior knowledge of nanotherapeutics, tumor immunology, drug delivery and nanomaterial-enabled immunotherapy to perform research utilizing nanocarriers and nanocarrier design to develop a chemo-immunotherapy platform in CNSI. The successful candidate will possess interdisciplinary skills and hands-on experience in conducting nanomaterial synthesis and cellular and animal studies based on a detailed understanding of nanomaterial properties and cargos to deliver drugs and raise anti-tumor responses. Postdoctoral researcher will assist in planning of experiments, methods development, and conduct productive research in the field of tumor chemo-immunotherapy. 

Position is available for immediate occupancy for minimally a 1-2 year appointment, contingent on background experience, performance, and continued availability of funding.  Candidate must have completed a PhD in immunology, cancer biology or materials science and have hands-on experience in nanotherapeutics. Candidates with pharmaceutical science expertise and drug delivery experience are encouraged to apply.  Applicants who have already served 3 years as a Postdoctoral Researcher at other institutions are not eligible to apply.  Please forward curriculum vitae and 3 references to David Avery, Chief Administrative Officer, UC CEIN (avery@ucla.edu).
