June 1, 2020. Postdoctoral position in B cell Immunology (Amgen through MITACS Elevate)

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our research team that is focused on exploring new technology platforms for therapeutic antibody discovery. This is a joint position between an academic lab and Amgen, a global biotechnology company focused on using innovative science to discover cures for serious illnesses.

Therapeutic antibodies are a dominant class of human therapeutics and have been used to treat diverse illnesses such as cancer, metabolic disorders and infectious disease. The discovery of lead candidates has evolved to combine transgenic mouse platforms with innovative single-cell technologies. The goal of this project is to investigate the impact of modulating immunization approaches on the generation of diverse, antigen specific B cell subsets such that they can be accessed via single-cell screening.

The successful candidate will be responsible for developing novel immunization protocols, immune profiling of murine B cells and single cell characterization. The position requires a strong and proven background in immunology or related field and excellent communication skills. Prior experience working with primary immune cells, multicolor FACS and single-cell analysis is preferred.
