An immediate NIH funded postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Laboratory of Dr. Bhatnagar for a project focusing on triple-negative breast cancer and tumor micro-immune environment. My laboratory has a broad interest in the identification of targetable epigenetic readers, writers, and erasers for which we use large-scale and focused loss-of-function shRNA and CRISPR/Cas9 genetic screens. We routinely use small molecule inhibitors, RNAi, immunotherapies, and nanoparticles to generate effective cancer therapies. This particular position is for 1 year with the possibility to extend for an additional year based on productivity. For additional information about the project, contact directly Dr. Bhatnagar (sb5fk@virginia.edu).

Qualifications:
To support our current ongoing activities, we are looking for a postdoctoral scientist with experience in immunology and molecular biology. From the model system perspective, we will prefer a candidate with a strong background in cancer cells and murine models. In addition, experience with immune cells, high throughput sequencing (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq), animal handing and tumor xenografts are highly desirable.
UVA offers an exciting working environment, the possibility to interact with interdisciplinary research groups, and competitive salary and benefits.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:
1) Participate in planning, designing, and executing technical and complex research projects, as assigned under the direction of a supervisor
2) Background in molecular biology, biochemical assays, protein handling
3) Growth and maintenance of mammalian cell cultures
4) Contribute to grant application and publications
5) Proven ability to work in a collaborative research team
REQUIREMENTS/MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:
1) MD and/or PhD in molecular biology, immunology, cell biology, or relevant scientific discipline by appointment start date
2) Experience in Cancer cell biology and general cell signaling
3) Excellent communication skills
PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS
Experience with Flow Cytometry, cloning, protein purification, and animal handling is highly desirable.
The selected applicant will be required to complete a background check and health screening prior to their first day of employment per University policy.
