POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN IMMUNOLOGY AND CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY
Job posting number: #7075410
Posted: February 23, 2021
Job DescriptionWe are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to join our immunology group headed by Dr. Christopher Rudd at the Université de Montréal in collaboration with McGill University, Montreal. Trainees in cancer immunology will have the opportunity to work with leading scientists and discoveries will have the potential to result in significant advances in cancer immunology and inform novel approaches to treatment. Projects will involve investigating T-cell signaling pathways that influence T-cell responses to cancer and infection. The projects include an analysis of the function of different co-receptors such as CD28, PD-1, CTLA- 4 in the modulation of T-cell function and anti-tumor immunity. A special focus is on the nature of T-cell signaling events that leads to improved immunotherapy. We are part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary research center with a strong group of researchers with expertise in T cell biology and cancer. Our lab uses a variety of cellular and molecular biology techniques as well as mouse models of cancer together with multi-photon microscopy to study mouse and human disease. Papers of interest include Liu et al., 2015 Molecular Cell 59, 840-849; Taylor et al 2016 Immunity, 44, 274-86; Krueger J and Rudd CE. (2017) Immunity 46, 529-531; Raab et al.
