The Position

We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on mechanisms of TGFb-beta activation who would be co-mentored between the Townsend and Arron laboratories. This position would leverage a suite of unique reagents that selectively target TGF-beta isoforms, crystal structures, and conditional KO mice, and also study genetic associations with TGF-beta in observed from whole genome sequencing of patients enrolled in Genentech clinical trials.

Genentech has a proud tradition of world-class basic and translational research, and the postdoctoral program here allows for important questions about fundamental biological mechanisms to be addressed independently of drug development programs. The large clinical trials conducted by the Roche group gives us unprecedented access to highly clinically characterized patients with matching data on treatment outcome, genetic variants, and disease state. A postdoc will be able to leverage these resources and study biological pathways of interest aided by world class scientific infrastructure, and also gain exposure to the drug development process.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will be a recent or pending Ph.D. graduate with a background in Immunology, Biochemistry and/or Cytokine biology. They will also have demonstrated ability to conduct high quality research through publications in top tier peer reviewed scientific journals.

This postdoc position will be co-mentored by Joe Arron and Michael Townsend:
