Weiskopf Laboratory Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
A post-doctoral position is available at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in the laboratory of Dr. Kipp Weiskopf. The Weiskopf laboratory studies the interaction between macrophages and cancer. The overall objectives of the laboratory are to identify novel immune checkpoints that regulate macrophage activation within the tumor microenvironment, and to identify new therapies that stimulate macrophages to attack and eliminate cancer. The laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach that spans immunology, cell biology, genetics, drug discovery, and in vivo modeling. Successful candidates will be joining a dynamic laboratory within an outstanding research environment.
Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research is a leading, nonprofit research and educational institution that has defined the cutting edge of biomedical science, creating a legacy of research excellence and academic eminence. Founded in 1982, the Institute is world-famous for its discoveries in genetics, genomics, stem cells, cancer and developmental biology, and for building powerful tools used by the scientific community worldwide.
