Interested in T cells and chemical biology?  Two NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are available for highly motivated candidates starting in January 2021 using our newly developed FucoID to detect antigen-specific T cells in human cancer patient samples and in murine autoimmune disease models in the laboratory of Prof. Peng Wu, Department of Molecular Medicine, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA.

Successful candidates will have a recent Ph.D. in chemical biology, cell biology, immunology and experiences with murine models.  Training in multi-color flow cytometry, fluorescent imaging, T-cell or cancer immunology is a plus.

Interested candidates should send an application packet, including all of the following as a single PDF file by email to Dr. Peng Wu: 

  1. Cover letter indicating current and future research interests;
  2. Expected starting date;
  3. Curriculum vitae;
  4. A brief summary of previous research experience;
  5. Names and contact information for 3 references.
