The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory (PI: Roberta Faccio) in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University in Saint Louis has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate in the field of tumor immunology. The associate will work on NIH-funded studies that utilize in vivo models (mouse) aimed at determining how the bone microenvironment reacts to an incipient tumor and orchestrate an immune suppressive response.
You will join a multidisciplinary orthopaedic research laboratory, part of the 75-member Washington University Musculoskeletal Research Center (http://musculoskeletalcore.wustl.edu/ ). There are strong collaborations between the Faccio lab and basic science researchers working in cancer biology (Drs. S. Stewart, K. Weilbaecher, D. Denardo, D. Novack), as well as oncologists (Drs. R. Aft and C. Ma).
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in cancer biology, immunology, cell or molecular biology, a closely related field.
- Preference will be given to applicants with a proven record in cancer biology and/or immunology.
- Experience working with transgenic/knockout mice and ability to perform FACS analysis is a plus.
Base pay commensurate with experience.
