The laboratory of Dr. Fumito Ito at the Center for Immunotherapy is looking for a postdoctoral candidate to work on research efforts toward delineating mechanisms of antitumor immune response of newly developed in situ immune modulation methods using mice models of breast cancer and/or melanoma, and predictive biomarker in patients undergoing immune checkpoint blockade.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in immunology (or related field) within 5 years of laboratory experience with demonstrated expertise in: tissue and cell culture; sterile technique for handling human tissue specimens; isolation and quantification of RNA/DNA/proteins from cultured cells or tissue specimens; viral vector-mediated transduction/transfection; basic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques (agarose gel electrophoresis, Western blotting, spectrometry, flow cytometry etc.); ordering, and laboratory maintenance. Experience in RNASeq data analysis, IHC, radioactive analyses, or CRISPR/Cas genome editing is a plus.
The candidate must be able to work independently, develop and carry out multiple scientific projects simultaneously, possess strong interpersonal skills, and have a proven track record of successful mentoring
Please submit a brief statement of interest, CV and contact information for at least 3 references to Dr. Ito at email@example.com.
