Our laboratory at the University of Chicago is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to examine the fascinating dialogues between stem cells and the immune system during cancer progression and tissue regeneration, with the ultimate goal of leveraging this crosstalk to develop novel immunotherapies for epithelial cancers. Our group employs state-of-art technologies such as in vivogene editing, in uterolentiviral delivery, multi-omics analysis, immunological approaches and advanced imaging techniques. We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to lead a project exploring stem cell-intrinsic factors for immune evasion in cancer and wound healing. More information on our group can be found at https://www.themiaolab.com
We will offer a closely mentored and interdisciplinary research environment with a strong emphasis of collaboration. Outside of the lab, our group is part of a large, diverse and vibrant research community at the University of Chicago and in the broader Chicago area. We are part of the Biological Sciences Division (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/), Ben May Department for Cancer Research (https://benmay.uchicago.edu/)and the UC Comprehensive Cancer Center (https://cancer.uchicago.edu/), providing postdoctoral researchers with access to talented collaborators and world class core research facilities (https://osrf.uchicago.edu/).
We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral scientists with strong passion for science to join the team and to address the fundamental questions in cancer immunology and stem cell immunology. Candidates who are broadly interested in cancer biology, immunology, stem cell biology, tissue regeneration, epigenetics or related areas are welcome to apply! Programing and computational skill is a plus. Applicants should hold Ph.D or equivalent degrees in relevant fields. To apply, please send CV, a brief description of the previous work and future research interests, as well as the contact information for three references to email@example.com. Compensation in the Biological Sciences Division follows the NIH NRSA Stipend scale. Additional information on benefits and being a postdoc in the University of Chicago Biological Sciences Division can be found atbsdpostdoc.uchicago.edu.
