We are seeking an individual to join the Oncology research group at Regeneron to pursue creative biomedical research in a well-resourced and fast-paced industry environment. This candidate will conduct research on signaling pathways that modulate the tumor immune microenvironment, with a focus on the signaling crosstalk between tumor cells and immune cells. This position is for early career scientist trainees to receive a rigorous scientific training at Regeneron under the auspices of a scientist mentor for up to four years. Fellows will be expected to conduct creative exploratory research that results in publications.
In this role, a typical day might include:
Lead an independent research project to investigate mechanisms by which tumor cell signaling regulates anti-tumor immunity.
Perform independent research in a highly collaborative environment, with access to state-of-the-art technologies and resources, including CRISPR libraries, single cell RNA sequencing (CITE-seq, ATAC-seq), bioinformatics support, FACS core, and in vitro/in vivo models of tumor-immune cell interactions.
Provide research progress reports to supervisors and the postdoctoral program committee.
Participate in postdoctoral program activities such as weekly meetings and annual research conference.
Build a strong dataset that leads to high impact peer-reviewed publications and presentations at scientific conferences.
This role might be for you if:
You recently completed a PhD degree in the field of cancer biology, immunology, signal transduction or a relevant subject area.
You have proven training and technical expertise in cell biology, signal transduction and/or immunology techniques (e.g., multi-parameter FACS).
You possess knowledge and experience of CRISPR gene editing, scRNA-Seq, or mouse tumor models. A motivation to harness new/emerging technologies will be strongly preferred.
You have excellent communication and organizational skills and the ability to work in a highly interactive environment.
The ideal candidate for this role has a strong work ethic, independent critical thinking skills, a steadfast commitment to discovery research and a documented ability to initiate, drive and complete significant research projects, as exemplified by high quality publications.
