We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to join the Perna lab at the new Brown Center of Immunotherapy, led and supported by the Indiana School of Medicine in Indianapolis, IN. The overall goal of the Perna lab is to develop precision immuno-therapies for patients with hematologic malignancies. The highly competitive research plan will be achieved via solid and largely supported projects involving the use of primary patient samples, human and mouse models of hematologic malignancies and cutting-edge technologies. By using sophisticated proteomic and genomic approaches for the identification of immunotherapeutic targets (Perna F et al Cancer Cell 2017), the lab investigates the molecular mechanisms underpinning leukemogenesis and develops innovative therapeutics. To this purpose we will closely work with the Vector Production Facility that is the NIH/NHLBI National Gene Vector Biorepository. The Perna lab has a strong interest and expertise in translational cancer research and immunotherapy, with several strong collaborations at major international institutions worldwide. The ideal candidate has expertise in biochemistry and cell culture and/or immunology. Basic knowledge of bioinformatics and/or proteomics is a plus. We will work in a very dynamic and collaborative environment.
The search committee will begin evaluating applications as they are received and applications will continue to be reviewed until positions are filled.
