Postdoctoral Fellow in Macrophage Immunotherapy – Weiskopf Lab

Job Description:

The Weiskopf Lab is seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral fellow to join our team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge research projects related to macrophage biology and cancer immunotherapy, with the goal of developing transformative therapies for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Potential research projects include:

1. CRISPR/Cas9 genomic screening efforts to identify and target novel macrophage immune checkpoints

2. Unbiased drug screens to discover compounds that enhance macrophage-mediated cytotoxicity of cancer cells

3. Protein engineering strategies to develop novel therapeutics that alter macrophage activation within the tumor microenvironment.

 

The Weiskopf laboratory studies the interaction between macrophages and cancer. The overall objectives of the laboratory are to identify novel immune checkpoints that regulate macrophages 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. Wholly independent in its governance, finances and research programs, Whitehead shares a teaching affiliation with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), offering the intellectual, collegial and scientific benefits of a leading research university.

Invent at Seattle Children's Postdoctoral Scholars Program

The Invent at Seattle Children’s Postdoctoral Scholars Program trains early career scientists historically underrepresented in or excluded from biotech in the development of therapeutics for childhood conditions. Scholars will receive three years of salary support plus benefits to create new “discovered here” cellular, gene or protein therapeutics that ultimately advance to clinical trials for children, all while preparing for careers in the biotech industry or academia. Positions are based in Seattle, WA.

Application deadline: Rolling
