A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Terrence Geiger in the Department of Pathology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital studying the biology and application of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells for cancer immunotherapy. We are particularly interested in understanding the molecular, cellular, and immunologic mechanisms influencing CAR T cell function and activity against tumor targets in immune competent hosts. Our aim is to develop improved adoptive immunotherapies for hematologic malignancies. The successful applicant will utilize advanced genetic engineering methodologies and novel genetically-modified mice and primary immune cells to examine CAR T cell mechanisms, and should have strong experience in immunology and cell or molecular biology.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital offers outstanding support for post-doctoral researchers, as well state-of-the-art facilities and career development opportunities.
Highly motivated candidates with a Ph.D. in immunology, cell biology, or other relevant field are encouraged to apply. Prior experience in primary mouse and human T cell culture, multi-color flow cytometry, mouse tumor models, and basic cellular and molecular immunology techniques are desirable, but not required. A letter of interest, CV, and three letters of recommendation should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
