This position is full-time and works approximately 40 hours per week.
Department Name/Job Location
This position is in the Department of Pathology & Immunology, Division of Immunobiology. This position is for the Medical School Campus.
A postdoctoral position is available to join the lab of Dr. Eynav Klechevsky at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
The Klechevsky lab is working to understand how dendritic cells and other cells of the immune system influence the development of immunity and cancer. We take a broad and multidisciplinary approach, which spans basic biology and translational medicine, to address complex questions in immunobiology that have important implications for human health.
Currently, there are projects available to decipher the molecular regulation of dendritic cell subsets function and differentiation using novel approaches such as CRISPR-Cas9 and genomic approaches. The work will contribute to our overall goal of advancing novel immunotherapy strategies for cancer and inflammatory disease. Specific details about the project will be provided to candidates during an interview, but a background on our research can be found by reading some of our recent papers.
The appointee has earned a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent terminal or doctoral degree.
A strong background in immunology, with skills in handling and analysis of human samples and mouse models. Expertise in flow cytometry (FACS), molecular biology, and mammalian cell culture and bioinformatics are also desirable.
The hiring range for this position is commensurate with experience.
