Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC)
- The overall project is to develop a method to produce mutation-reactive anti-tumor T cells from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (hiPSC).
- The candidate will be responsible for selecting staff to create a team capable of generating hiPSC from mature and exhausted human mutation reactive T cells.
- The candidate must be capable of designing the experiments and the protocols necessary to fully execute the project.
- The candidate must train the technical and postdoctoral staff in cell culture techniques, including Human Embryonic Stem Cell and hiPSC maintenance, and their further differentiation into T lineage cells.
- The successful applicant must have experience designing research schedules and providing guidance throughout the project.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. or M.D. in genetics or medicine and 5+ years of laboratory experience in the generation of mouse and human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC).
Candidate must be familiar with all aspects of T cell ontogeny.
