Postdoctoral Fellow - Tumor Immunology

Staff Name: 
Remy Bosselut, M.D., Ph.D.
Laboratory of Immune Cell Biology
Research Area Keywords: 

Tumor Immunology 

Position Description: 

The successful applicant will join a team studying CD4+ T cell responses to cancer, building on recent work in the laboratory (Ciucci et al, 2019, Immunity; Magen et al., submitted, references below). Experimental approaches leverage in vitro T cell Crispr mutagenesis and adoptive transfers, and analyses of experimental tumors using a variety of techniques, including flow cytometry, population and single-cell RNA sequencing and ATAC sequencing. Collaborative computational biology support is provided for these approaches, but bioinformatics training opportunities will be provided if interest. 

Number of Positions: 
C.V. Required: 
Number of References Required: 
Experience Required: 

Applicants should have (or be within a few months of obtaining) an MD or PhD in immunology, biochemistry, genetics or a similar field, with no more than 5 years of post-doctoral experience. Candidates associating a strong publication record with experience in mouse models, flow cytometry, bioinformatics, or gene expression analyses will be preferred.

Additional Information: 

The laboratory is located on the main NIH campus in Bethesda. We have access to an exceptional set of research facilities, including flow cytometry, imaging, next generation sequencing, mouse mutagenesis (transgenesis, homologous recombination and Crispr genome editing), and have collaborations and regular meetings with multiple NIH and academic groups. Recent relevant work includes:
