Postdoctoral fellow – T cell Receptor Signaling
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Dr. Samir Khleif’s lab in the field of cancer immunology with special focus on T cell receptor (TCR) signaling at GRU cancer center. The group conducts research in the areas of tumor immune modulation, targeted immunotherapy, immune cell signaling and mechanisms of tumor cell-immune cell interactions. Understanding TCR signaling in different T cell subsets is integral for modulating the anti-tumor immune response by targeting different pathways to enhance or suppress different cells types.
The selected candidate will be an important part of a versatile scientific environment and should contribute towards its further scientific achievements.
Applicants should possess a PhD degree and 2-3 years of research experience in a related field of research. Candidates should have a strong background in immunology and cell signaling. The position requires at least, 2-3 years of research experience in flow cytometry, different in vitro immune assays and a strong background in molecular biology. Writing scientific manuscripts, possible grant applications in addition to preparation of audience appropriate scientific presentations forms an important part of this role.
The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) and should demonstrate the ability to work as part of a team. Stipends are commensurate with educational credentials and research experience.
An updated CV and contacts of at least 3 references should be provided to Melanie Riney at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reference position number 8796 in the subject.
