The Foight lab is in the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). We do research at the intersection of protein engineering, mammalian synthetic biology, and cellular cancer immunotherapy. Our goal is to create new molecular interventions to improve the performance of engineered cell therapies for diverse cancer types. Our group is housed in shared lab and office space within CAGT, so we are surrounded by a supportive and interactive group of researchers from multiple clinical and translational research labs. BCM is in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, an unparalleled collection of hospitals and universities with a truly collaborative relationship between basic and clinical researchers. We are also just a short walk away from Rice University’s Bioengineering Department, which has many excellent synthetic biology research groups.
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral applicant to pursue research into the transcription factor networks that regulate immune cell function. Several projects are available that center on engineering new approaches to specifically and dynamically regulate transcription factors. Our goal will be to work towards a better understanding of the immune cell transcription factor networks and develop molecular interventions to create more efficacious and responsive cell therapies. Creative and motivated applicants will have flexibility to work with Dr. Foight to define the trajectory of their project.
Ph.D. applicants with a strong immunology or cell biology background with an interest in applying molecular engineering and synthetic biology approaches to improve cellular cancer immunotherapies are preferred. We will also consider candidates with a protein engineering, protein design, or mammalian synthetic biology background with a strong interest in immunotherapy.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three referees to email@example.com.
