Job Description

Job #: F669
Posted Date: January 9, 2018
Closes On: Open Until Filled
Job Title: Research Associate - Nomis Center Immunobiology/WAITT Advance Biophotonics Center, Dr. Lillemeier
Status: Regular Full Time
Benefits Eligible: Yes
Laboratory/Department: Nomis Center for Immunobiology/WAITT Advance Biophotonics Center
The Lillemeier laboratory is part of the Nomis Center for Immunobiology and the WAITT Advance Biophotonics Center. Research in the laboratory focuses on how T cell activities and functions are initiated and controlled during adaptive immune responses. Using cutting edge imaging, structural and biological approaches the lab studies the organization of proteins in the space and time to uncover how T cell signaling pathways are assembled and dissociated. Our goal is to modulate molecular mechanisms of T cell signaling to alter immune responses and find alternatives to current immunotherapies.
Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available to study the molecular dynamics and distribution of T cell signaling molecules, specifically in the T cell receptor (TCR) and PD-1 checkpoint pathways. The goal of these studies is to discover novel spatio-temporal mechanisms that are potential drug targets for future immunotherapies. The position requires application and/or development of cutting edge single molecule fluorescence microscopy techniques (based on single molecule super-resolution and tracking). We encourage applications of life scientist, engineers, and physicist that are interested in T cell biology.
