The immuno-oncology group is looking for an exceptionally trainedimmunologist to join the Powell Lab. The selected candidate will design, create, and conduct innovative approaches to identify critical and novel regulators involved in T cell differentiation during acute infection and cancer with also applications to immune system dysfunction that is found during aging. This position presents a unique opportunity to work alongside scientists with a broad range of expertise at the intersection of basic and translational biology. The candidate will also heavily collaborate across various scientific disciplines to gain new and meaningful insights that can also be studied in immune cells. The ideal candidate must demonstrate a record of achievement in their previous field of study, be highly motivated to tackle complex questions in basic T and immune cell biology and can work both independently and in close collaboration with other groups.
