The PositionSee More
The Cancer Immunology Department is seeking several highly motivated Senior Scientific Researchers to perform discovery research in the area of inflammation and cancer. The successful candidates will implement and apply cellular immunology, single cell sequencing, gene-editing, proteomics, biochemistry and mouse models to elucidate disease pathways and identify nodes for therapeutic intervention, and will be expected to make intellectual as well as technical contributions to the team.
Responsibilities: Participate in the discovery and investigation of large and small molecule drug targets, dissect tissue and tissue microenvironment in animal models and human samples, perform exploratory disease-oriented research; independently design, execute, analyze and present studies to various forums within the department and across the wider Research organization.
Qualifications: The successful applicants will have a PhD in immunology, molecular biology, biochemistry or related field and 2+ years experience in an academic or industry laboratory setting. Candidates must have a documented record of professional achievement in the form of impactful publications, and must be familiar with immunological principles and techniques including primary cell isolation, cell culture and flow cytometry. A strong background in T cell or myeloid cell immunology and experience studying gene regulation and function in primary cells, including CRISPR, are highly desired. We are also looking for candidates with a strong background in either innate or adaptive immunity, molecular signaling pathways and cancer biology. Good oral/written communication skills, creative problem-solving flexibility, and the ability to integrate detailed analysis into a larger disease-oriented context will be expected.
