A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Leo D. Wang, MD, PhD, at City of Hope in Duarte, CA.
Do you love immunology, particularly T cell receptor signaling?
Are you interested in applying that knowledge to help develop new cancer therapies?
Are you excited to design, lead, and implement your own projects?
We are recruiting enthusiastic, motivated scientists who are seeking a fast-paced, team-based academic research environment. Our lab in the Department of Immuno-oncology focuses on how blood and immune cells develop, function, and interact with other cells, with a second focus on how blood stem cells become malignant. We use mass spectrometry to identify activated protein circuits in rare blood stem and progenitor cell populations, including therapeutic chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, and combine that knowledge with fundamental immunological principles to improve and devise new therapies for pediatric cancers and blood disorders.
