Monday, July 6, 2020

A Postdoctoral Fellowship position is available immediately at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology in the lab of Dr. Alessandro Sette and Dr. Cecilia Lindestam Arlehamn, who are interested in understanding human T cell reactivity in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and ALS.

Successful candidates will join an interdisciplinary group of researchers with a strong sense of collaboration dedicated to the identification and characterization of T cell responses against a variety of complex antigens. They will build upon previous discoveries implicating a role for T cells in neurodegenerative diseases (PMIDs: 28636593, 31085590, 31430650, and 32313102).


Ideal postdoctoral candidates will have strong backgrounds in immunology, with an emphasis on T cell immunity, as well as strong verbal and written communication skills. Familiarity with neurodegenerative diseases and bioinformatics is a strong plus.

How to Apply: Interested individuals should include their curriculum vitae, cover letter describing why they are interested in this position, and the names of three references. Applications without a cover letter will not be reviewed. Please enclose all documents within a single file attachment.
