Immunology Postdoctoral Fellow in Philadelphia
A IMMUNOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in Philadelphia is available immediately in the lab of David Wiest at Fox Chase Cancer Center. My lab has a longstanding history of investigation into the molecular mechanisms controlling lymphoid development and transformation. We have the following exciting projects available:
- Analysis of the role on molecular control of gamma-delta T cell lineage development and function, including the role of lncRNA, using genome wide approaches.
- Investigation of the regulatory functions of ribosomal proteins in controlling hematopoietic development and transformation, with a particular focus on alterations in cell metabolism.
- Elucidation of novel domain-specific functions of ERK in cancer etiology and immunotherapy.
In pursing these projects, we exploit genomic and proteomic approaches, as well as genome editing. Opportunities are available to learn not only how to perform wet “omic” analysis, but also how to perform the bioinformatic analysis necessary to maximally benefit from these approaches. Experience with mouse models and/or zebrafish is advantageous. Fox Chase is located in a safe suburban neighborhood with easy access to the city.
