A research opportunity is available immediately for a highly motivated and
talented postdoctoral fellow to join our team to study the biology of
chemokine receptors in the pathogenesis of T cell lymphomas. We have
established an inducible Cre/lox knockout of a chemokine receptor which is
implicated in the follicular helper T cell lymphomas and are exploring
mechanisms of tumorigenesis in this model. We have developed small
molecule antagonists as well as biologics that target this receptor and are
using the Cre/lox knockout as well as human xenografts to test candidate
compounds for clinical use. Genotyping, phenotyping, adoptive transfer
experiments, and molecular biology techniques are required. A PhD in
cancer biology, immunology, or pathology is desirable. The applicant must
be able to design and conduct experiments, prepare and present their work
at meetings, write scientific manuscripts, and speak fluently in English.
The applicant will join a group of investigators from the Departments of
Pharmacology (Prof. Lolis) and Hematology (Prof. Foss), who are members
of the NCI-designated Yale Cancer Center. Each research group brings
expertise in different disciplines ranging from biochemistry to clinical studies.
In addition, Yale University is known for its collaborative environment and
provides an exceptional training environment with access to other groups
possessing expertise in additional diverse areas.
