We are seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to join the research program of A/Prof Laura Mackay within the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Doherty Institute. The Mackay Lab aims to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying T cell generation in peripheral tissues, with a view to inform new therapeutic strategies designed to harness immune cells to protect against infection and cancer (https://www.doherty.edu.au/people/associate-professor-laura-mackay).

The position requires a driven and experienced cellular immunologist with a background in T-cell biology and a strong interest in cell-based cancer immunotherapies. The position will involve combining expertise in immunology, molecular biology and T-cell biology. Key responsibilities will include ex-vivo genetic modification of T-cells, genome sequencing, functional analysis using standard immunological assays and testing of new immunotherapeutic targets in mouse tumour models and clinical cohorts. Accurate recording of results and the ability to meet project milestones is a key requirement.
