Opportunities

Postdoctoral Fellow

A postdoctoral position is available for a creative and motivated individual with PhD training in immunology, molecular biology, or related fields. The successful individual will join a bioengineering research group to contribute to the development of new technologies in single cell sequencing and to pursue potential projects in immune repertoire sequencing, antibody discovery, and biomarker discovery in cancer immunotherapy.

The ideal individual should have strong experimental skills, organizational skills, as well as the ability to interface with researchers across disciplines. Previous experience in tissue culture, immune phenotyping (immunofluorescence, flow cytometry, luminex), molecular biology (DNA/RNA extraction, PCR), and genome and transcriptome sequencing would be assets to the position.

The position is fully funded and located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Interested candidates should email CV, statement of interest, list of references, and representative publications to Dr. Hongshen Ma (email: hongma@mech.ubc.ca).
