Post-doc wanted to work on immunotherapy for brain cancer

We are searching for a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow with a strong background in molecular biology and immunology at the Laboratory of Brain Tumor Immunotherapy, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of California, San Francisco. Our laboratory has long-standing and productive research projects directed toward the development of innovative immunotherapy strategies for primary brain tumors. We are specifically interested in understanding more about immune-reactivity in the brain tumor microenvironment and characterizing glioma-derived neoantigen epitopes as well as corresponding T cell receptors (TCR) or chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) for the development of novel immunotherapeutics. Our interdisciplinary studies utilize human genomics data, genetic engineering in animal models and recombinant viral gene vectors, and immunological methods, such as flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and T cell function assays.

The applicants must hold a Ph.D. level degree ideally in immunology or molecular biology with research experience that includes T-cell culture, immunological assays, molecular cloning, and at least one first-authored publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated, keen to acquire new knowledge and skills, and eager to produce scientific publications. The candidate is expected to have strong organizational and record-keeping skills to record experiment results and analyze data, as well as effective written communication skills to publish results.
