Current UCLA faculty have developed best-in-class T-cell therapies for fighting and beating cancer and for world-leading transplant programs; they have made groundbreaking discoveries unlocking the genetics and cell biology of immunity and are building mathematical models of human health.
Here, now, we are harnessing the power of the immune system to cure disease.
Postdoc position available at the UCLA Center for Iron Disorders. The project examines iron pathophysiology in the lung.
Applicants should have a record of accomplishment in molecular cell biology, physiology or microbiology. Please contact Tomas Ganz (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Elizabeta Nemeth (email@example.com).
The UCLA Immunogenetics Center, Department of Pathology, University of California, Los Angeles (www.hla.ucla.edu) is seeking a highly talented and motivated postdoctoral candidate to join a multidisciplinary team of investigators from UCLA and UCSF in a translational research project focused on characterizing immunity to Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in renal transplant recipients. The long-term goal of the research is to develop a detailed molecular map of the cross-talk between the innate and adaptive immune response in primary and latent CMV infection in the renal transplant recipient in order to define the effects of CMV infection on the development of transplant rejection and, more broadly, injury. The postdoctoral fellow will characterize antigen specific T cell responses to CMV and transplant donor alloantigens, perform high throughput immunophenoptyping, genomic and transcriptomic data and use systems-based statistical and computational immunology to define altered host:CMV interactions. Detailed insights into the interaction of the virus with the immune system will generate new concepts for more adequate vaccine strategies and risk assessment for CMV infection, and possibly for reduced or delayed immune injury to the transplanted organ.
The successful candidate will have outstanding achievements in his/her doctoral research and possess independent research abilities and ambitious scientific goals. Please submit your cover letter, CV, and names and contact information for at least 3 references to
Recruitment Period: Open November 7th, 2017 through June 30th, 2018
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has an immediate opening for a Project Scientist with expertise in immunology and immuno-oncology. The Project Scientist will primarily be responsible for implementing, executing and managing research projects related to the single-cell cytokine detection platform Isoplexis. The successful candidate will: participate in project design and management; develop and validate assays, protocols and platforms that fit in the general strategic objectives of the department; develop SOPs, assay specifications and quality measures; train employees; promote the use of validated assays within and beyond the UCLA community; compile and present experimental results to the project team; prepare publications and present experimental results at scientific meetings. He/she should be able to work collaboratively with other areas as part of an interdepartmental project team.
The applicant must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in immunology and must have 4+ years of hands-on experience with microscopy, multi-parameter assessment of soluble analytes, and cellular immune function assays. Demonstrated assay development experience, research independence, and technical competence in flow cytometry are desired. The candidate must have excellent communication, interpersonal skills and organizational skills.
Interested applicants please send curriculum vitae/resume and names and contact information of 3 references to: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF03510
Recruitment Period: Open January 17th, 2018 through May 31st, 2018
The La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI) invites early- to mid-career applicants to apply for a tenure-track faculty position to add to our research program in immunology. Applicants must have an outstanding record of scienti?c ability evidenced by a strong publication record and/or competitive funding.
Applicants should electronically submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, scienti?c achievements, and a detailed research plan to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The TRIUMPH Postdoctoral Fellowship provides training in clinical and translational research for Ph.D.-trained individuals. The immediate goal of this program is to recruit talented and productive Ph.D.s from top graduate programs to provide continued training in clinical and/or translational cancer research through didactic coursework, clinical rotations, and unique, interdisciplinary mentorships. A long term goal of this program is to produce translational scientists who can be teamed with suitable physician scientists to PI a translational research laboratory.
The training that this program provides will produce translational scientists that can be paired with physician scientists to lead unique and well designed translational and clinical research projects.
