Postdoctoral Fellow - Cancer Immunology, Mellman Lab
Ira Mellman’s laboratory, in the Department of Cancer Immunology at Genentech, is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship to study fundamental mechanisms of cancer immunity.
The position offers a terrific opportunity to work in this exciting new field, supported by a uniquely collaborative community of scientists dedicated to understanding the relationship between cancer and the immune system.
A broad range of problems will be available to incoming postdocs including T cell and dendritic cell function, the immunobiology of the tumor microenvironment, the role of innate immunity, and therapeutic vaccine mechanisms.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in immunology, cell biology of immune cells, or cell imaging.
Most importantly, the successful candidate will be someone who is highly motivated to ask questions of exceptional importance and to work in a collaborative but independent fashion.
Although the position will be primarily focused on addressing problems of basic science, these can be problems derived from an investigation of disease or therapeutic mechanisms.
