Performs basic research duties under the supervision/direction of a Physician (Principal Investigator). We are seeking two highly-motivated researchers or postdoctoral fellows (1) to study the biology of Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T and NK cells, (2) to develop innovative CAR-T and CAR-NK cells for infectious diseases and cancer with the ultimate goal of administering them to patients as part of a future clinical trial (NIH funded); and (3) to study the cell biology and immunology of NK cell, with a focus on NK cell inhibitory receptor signaling and immunological synapse. We are using molecular, biochemical, and imaging strategies, as well as cutting-edge biophysical approaches for understanding human lymphocyte dysfunction in chronic infectious diseases and cancers. 

All applicants with experience in molecular biology/cloning, immunology, cancer biology, infectious diseases, and imaging are encouraged to apply. This post-doctoral fellowship or research position will provide the opportunity to apply super-resolution imaging techniques to study the biology of cytotoxic lymphocytes and CAR cells in the laboratory of Dongfang Liu, Ph.D. 

Please send your application, a cover letter, and statement of career goals, CV, and contact information for 3 references to:
Dongfang Liu, Ph.D.
