Regulation of Effector, Memory, and Exhausted T Cell Responses
Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, CA
A post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Linda Bradley for studies on the regulation of T cell differentiation and responses in the settings of acute and chronic virus infections and cancer. The laboratory studies adaptive and innate immune mechanisms that act as checkpoint regulators of T cell immune responses using murine models as well as clinical translation in in studies of cancer immunotherapy. The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in immunology with expertise in T cell immunology and in experimental approaches to study T cell functions using in vivo models. This position requires a highly motivated individual who can function independently in design and execution of experiments, has excellent organizational and communication skills, and the ability to work in a collaborative environment. A strong publication record as well as eligibility to apply for fellowship support are required.
