Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available in the Bosselut lab within the Laboratory of Immune Cell Biology, National Cancer Institute, to study T cell differentiation and function. Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to mechanisms of T cell differentiation in the thymus and CD4+ T cell response to infection and cancer. Research projects will be chosen based on the applicant’s interests. A wide variety of experimental approaches, including various biochemical approaches, ChIPseq, single-cell RNA and ATAC sequencing, Crispr-mediated mutagenesis in T cells, and multiple infection and experimental tumor models are in routine use in the laboratory. More information at .
