Job DescriptionPostdoctoral fellow positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Shao-Cong Sun to study the molecular mechanisms that regulate autoimmunity and anti-tumor immunity. The focus of our research is on characterizing novel regulators of T cell activation, metabolic reprogramming, and effector functions in mouse models of autoimmune diseases and anti-tumor immunity. In addition, we are studying the signaling network in innate immune cells (dendritic cells and macrophages) that regulate inflammation, tumor microenvironment, and T cell functions. For more information, please check our recent publications in the website http://faculty.mdanderson.org/Shao-Cong_Sun/.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. degree or in the process of completing Ph.D. training and a solid background in Immunology and signal transduction, with hand-on experience in flow cytometry, molecular techniques, and mouse models of autoimmunity and/or anti-tumor immunity.
Successful candidates will join a collegial and highly interactive team and enjoy the stimulating environment of UT MD Anderson Cancer Center. The Department of Immunology, led by Nobel Laureate James Allison, conducts cutting-edge research in different areas of Immunology. Dr. Sun’s laboratory has a long history of success in research and postdoctoral training.
