Department of Immunology and Microbiology, Wang Laboratory
The research focus of the laboratory is to elucidate the mechanism of immune evasion mechanism in cancers and develop more effective cancer immunotherapy for B cell lymphomas or head and neck cancers.The successful candidate will participate in the initiation of the research projects and is expected to carry out his or her projects independently. Applicants should receive a Ph.D. degree in immunology or molecular biology related field. Experience and background in cellular immunology and animal models are highly desired. In addition, the applicant should be self-motivated, hard-working, and willing to work with flexible hours. This position is for entry level applicants. Applicants are preferred to be eligible for NIH T32 training grants (US citizen or permanent residents only) but not required.
