Postdoctoral Position in Health Sciences

A postdoc funding is available in health sciences at Medical College of Wisconsin. This funding is available for all students around the world. Applicants should apply before April 23, 2015.

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in Dr. Li Wang's well-funded laboratory to study the immune-regulatory role of a novel checkpoint ligand VISTA, which stands for V domain Immunoglobulin Suppressor of T cell Activation. Dr. Li Wang's laboratory is within the department of Microbiology Molecular Genetics and the Hematologic Malignancy and Transplantation (HMT) Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Candidate will work with mouse tumor models and other immune models that examine the critical functions of VISTA in regulating both innate and adaptive immune responses during cancer development, and to uncover the link between immune checkpoint regulators (i.e. VISTA and others), inflammation, and tumor immunity.

Application Requirements
- A successful candidate will have recent Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Immunology or any relevant branch of biological sciences.
- Preference will be given to individuals with research interest and experience in immune regulations, particularly in T cell receptor signaling pathways and TLR/NLR signaling pathways.
- Working with mouse models, flow cytometry and sorting, familiarity with assays of immune cell function is advantage.
- Good written and verbal communication skills are highly appreciated.

How to apply?
Please submit your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation via email to: Dr. Li Wang, Assistant Professor, Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Medical College of Wisconsin.
