Research Associate-Fixed Term

Job description

Position Summary

We are seeking a highly motivated research associate, post-doctoral fellow, to work on projects examining the signaling mechanisms regulating the functions of conventional and innate type T cells. Our laboratory combines in vitro approaches with live animal modeling to map the regulatory circuits that specify immune cell fate and function and coordinate immune responses in human diseases such as cancer and asthma.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D in Immunology and/or Molecular Biology; have a strong track record of high quality biomedical research; and an excellent publication record. We are particularly interested in candidates with previous experience in isolation and working with primary human immune cells, tissue culture, multi-color flow cytometry, fixed and live cell confocal microscopy, gene silencing/overexpression, and in vivo tumor models. 

The successful applicant will have ample opportunities to develop new skills, and work in an excellent scientific environment with full access to cutting edge tools and technologies. This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic, committed biologist to make an important contribution to defining the mechanisms of lymphocytes in host immunity against cancer and/or allergic diseases.
