postdoctoral position in immunotherapy or hematopoietic stem cell biology

Updated: 2 months ago
Location: Durham, NORTH CAROLINA
Deadline: 28 Dec 2022

A full-time paid postdoctoral position is available immediately at the Division of Hematologic Malignancies and Cellular Therapy, Department of Medicine, Duke University. The candidate should have a doctoral degree such as MD or PhD or equivalent degree and has interests in immunotherapy and/or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation using mouse animal models. The research involves understanding the mechanisms underlying resistance/relapse following immunotherapy such as CAR T and developing novel agents for protecting hematopoietic stem cells following radiation exposure. The overall duties and responsibilities are: 1) to develop novel approaches for overcoming resistance in immunotherapy and for enhancing hematological and immunological recovery in radiation exposure; 2) to perform experiments and collect data, and to evaluate experimental data and establish the relevance to experimental problems under investigation; 3) to prepare research results for publication in reports, papers, journals, books, and other media; and 4) to train and direct support personnel. The candidates are expected to have experience in animal bone marrow transplant models, molecular pathway analysis, flow cytometry, and lentiviral-based gene transfer. Prior experience in CAR T and bispecific antibodies is a plus.  If interested, please send a cover letter describing research interests, a CV, and the contact information of three professional references to Dr. Yubin Kang, Professor of Medicine, at yubin.kang@duke.edu
