Post-doctoral opportunity in proteomics and immunotherapy at UCSF apwiita  2019-10-23
 

The laboratory of Arun Wiita at the University of California, San Francisco is currently recruiting post-docs to help us advance our mission of discovering new targets and developing new immunotherapies for hematologic malignancies (see brief description of related work at https://wiitalab.ucsf.edu/developing-novel-immunotherapies-profiling-cancer-cell-surface). In particular, we are interested in finding candidates with experience in redox proteomics, disulfide proteomics, and/or cross-linking mass spectrometry to enhance our discovery of novel cancer immunotherapy targets and therapeutics. Experience in mass spectrometry-based proteomics is required, and prior experience in immunology, cell biology, and/or protein biochemistry would be assets.

Our group is located in beautiful San Francisco, California. UCSF is one of the premier academic medical centers in the world, excelling in both basic science and clinical research. We are a multidisciplinary research group and our interests span from the basic to translational realms across a number of conditions, as well as new technology development combining chemical-based enrichment and quantitative proteomics.
We offer competitive salary in line with cost-of-living in the Bay Area. We are fortunate to have numerous sources of funding including the NIH New Innovator Award, an NCI R01, and additional federal and private grants to support our work. We are also fortunate to have extensive collaborations with other world-leading scientists across UCSF, as well as access to world-class core facilities to accelerate discoveries in biomedical research. In addition, all mentorship and project design within our group is customized for the scholar's career goals, whether entering academia or industry.

Well-qualified applicants should send a CV, cover letter, and contact information for two references to arun.wiita@ucsf.edu.
