Postdoctoral positions available:
We are seeking postdocs to study the immune suppression mechanisms of LAG3 and other next-generation immune checkpoint receptors. We use a multidisciplinary approach that integrates structural biology with cutting-edge protein engineering techniques, such as directed evolution, to develop synthetic ligands with altered signaling properties. Specifically, we are using structure-guided engineering to reprogram immune checkpoints such that they enhance, rather than inhibit, immune cell function.
In addition to the research, the position will include career development training, including grant writing, scientific presentations, mentorship of junior trainees, networking, and building collaborations.
Candidates will work with a team of immunologists and clinical scientists to conduct translational research in a highly collaborative environment.
Mentoring graduate students and technicians
Composing manuscripts and postdoctoral fellowships, assisting with grant applications
Credentials and qualifications:
PhD in Molecular Biology, Immunology, Biophysics or a related field.
Demonstrated expertise in protein biochemistry and molecular biology is required, and experience in structural biology is desired but not necessary.
How to apply
Candidates should e-mail the following to directly to email@example.com:
1) A cover letter that describes their motivation to pursue this position and summarizes past research accomplishments.
2) A current CV with recent publications and contact information for three references.
