Job Summary

The T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders are a heterogeneous and poorly understood group of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. Unfortunately, most patients afflicted with these lymphomas will ultimately succumb to their disease. Improved understanding of T-cell lymphoma pathogenesis and the development of novel therapeutic strategies will be needed to address this challenge and improve outcomes for patients afflicted with these aggressive lymphomas. The Wilcox laboratory combines expertise in basic immunology/lymphoma biology with expertise in clinical trial development. A research position is available to address fundamental questions related to the role of antigen-, costimulatory-, and cytokine-receptor signaling, and the contribution of myeloid-derived antigen-presenting cells, in T-cell lymphomagenesis. The laboratory uses complementary mouse models and primary T-cell lymphoma specimens (in ex vivo and patient-derived xenograft studies) to address these fundamental and clinically relevant questions.

Candidate responsibilities include: i) conducting research, ii) developing experimental designs, iii) acquiring, iv) analyzing and presenting data. PI will provide focused and tailored mentoring to candidate to ensure that candidate reaches the desired career goals. Highly motivated candidates are sought, and will have the unique opportunity to participate in multi-disciplinary research discussions
