We are seeking one motivated postdoctoral fellow or research associate to study 

1) The biology of Chimeric Antigen Receptor T ( CAR -T) and NK ( CAR -NK) cells and characterize these CAR -T and CAR -NK cells (Mol Ther. 2018, PMID : 29503199) for development of innovative therapies for chronic viral infection and virus-related malignancies with the ultimate goal of administering them to patients as part of a future clinical trial. 

2) The cell biology of NK cell, with a focus on NK cell inhibitory receptor signaling (Immunity. 2012, PMID : 22464172) and immunological synapse (Immunity, 2009, PMID : 19592272) using human NK cells and novel NK-specific knockout mice. 

We are using molecular, biochemical, immunological, and imaging strategies, as well as biophysical approaches for understanding human lymphocyte dysfunction in chronic infectious diseases and cancer. 

All applicants with experience in molecular & cell biology, molecular cloning, immunology, or imaging are encouraged to apply. 

This post-doctoral fellowship will provide the opportunity to apply cutting-edge techniques to study the biology of cytotoxic lymphocytes and CAR -T and CAR -NK cells in the laboratory of Dongfang Liu. 

Houston Methodist, a teaching hospital affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University, is located at the vibrant Texas Medical Center in Houston, TX. 

Salary will be commensurate with NIH post-doctoral pay scales. 

Please attach with your application, a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dongfang Liu ( dliu2@houstonmethodist.org )
