Postdoctoral Research Associate in Immunology and Immunometabolism in Dr. Hongbo Chi’s Laboratory
Immunology postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Hongbo Chi in the Department of Immunology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org/chi), to investigate discovery and cancer immunology, by focusing on cell metabolism of the immune system (immunometabolism) and its implications in cancer and other diseases. As metabolic pathways are inextricably connected to immunity and cancer, understanding these connections allows us to gain new insights into biological concepts and disease targets. We are particularly interested in understanding the metabolic programs (e.g. glucose, lipid, and mitochondrial metabolism), signaling pathways (e.g. mTOR and Hippo kinases; metabolite- and nutrient-induced signaling), and systems-level regulatory networks (e.g. interactions between protein regulators and their targets) in basic T cell and dendritic cell biology and antitumor immunity. To this end, we apply interdisciplinary strategies by integrating immunological and genetic approaches with cutting-edge systems immunology tools, including single-cell transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, network reconstruction, and in vivo CRISPR screening.
