We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the Effector Function and Cell Biology group in the BAS Department at Genentech, Inc. The candidate will join a dynamic team with strong and extensive experiences in cell biology, immunology and assay development. The candidate will be able to leverage cutting-edge technologies to seek for novel factors leading to T cell reactivity. Specifically, the individual will apply multiomics single cell genomics technologies, TCR characterization, cellular immuneophenotyping and gene editing to study biological pathways leading to immunogenicity. The successful candidate will work closely with lab-based molecular cell biologist, immunologists, and computational scientists across gRED and will have the opportunity to gain exposure to the drug development process. The expectation is that this work will result in significant advances and publications in top tier journals.
The successful candidate has to be a recent or pending PhD or MD/PhD graduate in a field of immunology or a related field with a proven ability to conduct high quality, impactful research through peer-reviewed publication, as indicated by at least one first author paper published or accepted in high-impact journals. A background in T cell immunology is highly desired.
The candidate must have scientific rigor, strong work ethics and a willingness to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of scientists. Prior experience processing and profiling samples with scRNA sequencing (single cell genomics) is a definite requirement. Candidates who are computationally competent to analyze omics data will be preferred. Experience with fluorescence microscopy and new microscopy techniques is a plus. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required.
