1.    Conducting experiments using animal models, as well as experimental methodologies relating to cellular immunology and molecular biology. 
2.    Analyzing data using scRNAseq technology, as well as basic knowledge of R, DESeq2, and Seurat packages. 
3.    Perform transfection in cancer cell lines and knockout genes using CRISPR-Cas9.
4.    Independently driving projects and developing innovative research ideas. 
5.    Collaborating with other team members, including students, technicians, and other postdoctoral fellows. 

Qualifications:
The successful candidate must possess the following qualifications:
1.    Ph.D. in immunology or cellular biology. 
2.    Desired strong background in bioinformatics, including basic knowledge of R, DESeq2, and Seurat packages.
