Creating more effective methods to harness the antitumor activity of immune cells

Two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions are available immediately to explore the fast-developing and highly interdisciplinary field of immunobioengineering. Using next-generation immunomodulatory synthetic materials, the postdoctoral fellows will develop new approaches - beyond existing T-cell-based therapies - to therapeutically manipulate the immune system against cancer. The successful applicants will fabricate stimulatory biomaterial devices, drug delivery systems and bioactive substances and test their therapeutic potential in preclinical tumor models of adoptive T-cell therapy. The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center provides a highly interactive and supportive environment for junior investigators to grow and develop their future career; it consistently ranks in the top 20 best places to work for postdocs, as surveyed by The Scientist. 

Suitable applicants should have a PhD degree in immunology or bioengineering.  The successful candidate will be a scientifically driven, well organized self-starter.
