We are seeking a highly motivated and dedicated scientist with a deep understanding of immunology to join our team investigating mechanisms of radiation-induced immune and inflammatory responses.
The appointee will work on the elucidation of the mechanism of radiation-induced lymphopenia using a combination of immunology, molecular biology, and genetics/genomics approaches. The project will focus on T cell development, inflammation and immunity and would need knowledge in variety of immunological assays and biological systems.
- A PhD in Immunology, Molecular biology or a related field.
- A strong publication record.
- Ability to design and conduct experiments independently.
