Open Postdoctoral Position in Cancer Immunology at the Department Biomedicine, University Hospital Basel
Project: Our research is dedicated to delineate mechanisms of anti-tumor immunity in cancer patients. The project aims at dissecting the development and function of intra-tumoral T cells directed against tumor antigens and to assess immunoregulatory cell subsets and pathways, which are active in the tumor microenvironment, in particular upon treatment with anti-cancer therapies. We will use biochemical, genetic, cellular, and systems-based approaches to address these points experimentally.http://www.nature.com/naturejobs/science/jobs/486201-postdoctoral-position-in-cancer-immunology
Requirements: We are particularly looking for candidates with a PhD or MD/PhD background; a background in human tumor immunology would be ideal. Excellent written and verbal communication skills, a high degree of motivation and organization with a strong record of scientific accomplishments (e.g. publication track record) with manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals are a prerequisite for this position.
Starting date: The position is open starting April 1st 2015 (negotiable).
