Job DescriptionA postdoctoral fellow position is available in Department of Immunology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX. Our research is to understand the molecular basis of T cell mediated immune responses, and how abnormal immune regulation leads to immunodeficiency, autoimmunity and cancer. Autoimmunity and inflammation mouse models include experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), colitis, and lung airway inflammation; tumor immunity models include T cell-mediated immune responses against transplanted melanoma, chemical induced sarcoma, and lung cancer. The Dr. Nurieva lab at the MD Anderson Cancer Center is recruiting a postdoc to conduct research in the following projects: 1. The molecular mechanisms of T cell activation and tolerance; 2. The signaling and transcriptional mechanisms underlying T helper cell differentiation and function.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. degree or in the process of completing Ph.D. training and a solid background in Immunology, with preferred hand-on experience in flow cytometry, molecular techniques, and mouse models of autoimmunity and/or anti-tumor immunity.
