|Job Title: Research Assistant II/III Biochemist- Nomis Center for Immunobiology, Dr. Bjorn Lillemeier|
|Status: Regular Full Time|
|Benefits Eligible: Yes|
|Laboratory/Department: Nomis Foundation Laboratories for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis|
|The Lillemeier laboratory is part of the Nomis Center for Immunobiology and the WAITT Advance Biophotonics Center. Research in the laboratory focuses on how T cell activities and functions are initiated and controlled during adaptive immune responses. Using cutting edge imaging, structural and biological approaches the lab studies the organization of proteins in the space and time to uncover how T cell signaling pathways are assembled and dissociated. Our goal is to modulate molecular mechanisms of T cell signaling to alter immune responses and find alternatives to current immunotherapies.|
Research Assistant position with focus on protein- and biochemistry. A successful candidate will work half of their time on independent projects and the other half on supporting postdoctoral researchers in the lab. The position requires to establish and utilize protein expression systems (i.e. bacteria, insect cell and mammalian), and to perform biochemical experiments. The candidate will be trained in specific techniques and methods that are required for the projects. The overall goal of the research is to understand the molecular and structural mechanisms of T cell signaling.
This position requires constant seeing, adjusting focus and working inside.
