About the Lab:
Our research group is interested in the lung tumor microenvironment, with an emphasis on the role of innate immunity, and in particular the neutrophil. We utilize murine models of lung cancer to determine the means by which entities of the innate immune system actually contribute to tumor growth and invasiveness. We are recruiting a post-doctoral fellow to take on an independent project within this focus area.
- Recent (0 - 2 years of Post-Doctoral Research experience) PhD in the fields of Immunology, Molecular Biology, Pathology, or a closely related field with extensive immunology research experience.
- A background in neutrophil biology
- Strong experience in the areas of general molecular biology: RNA, DNA, protein, cell, and in vivo models
- Murine model experience (strongly preferred)
- Background in tumor microenvironment
- Flow Cytometry experience
