Postdoc position available in immunotherapy research
Immediate Opening for Posdoctoal Research Position:
Immunotherapy and Brain Tumor Research
There is an immediate position available for a qualified postdoctoral candidate at the University of Minnesota, Department of Neurosurgery. Key areas of study include employing TLR9 and TLR3 agonists as vaccine adjuvants, in vivo imaging of T cell and dendritic cell trafficking into the brain, and mechanisms of immune evasion used by brain cancer stem cells. Murine and canine glioma models are available, in addition to ongoing work with human cells. The postdoc will have technician support to accelerate progress and access to state of the art equipment for rodent neurosurgery. Qualified applicants will be highly motivated, independent, and proficient in written and spoken English. Knowledge of immunology and immunotherapy of cancer is highly desirable and applications fitting this description will be given priority. Experience in cell culture, cloning of plasmid DNA vectors, animal work, and general knowledge in the area of genetics is required. Familiarity with neuro-anatomy, neuro-immunology, and lentiviral vectors is desirable but not required.
