SBP is a preeminent, independent biomedical research institute dedicated to understanding human biology and disease, and advancing scientific discoveries to profoundly impact human health. For over 40 years, our research has produced breakthroughs in cancer, neuroscience, immunology and children’s diseases, and is anchored by our NCI-designated cancer center and advanced drug discovery capabilities.
Research in the Laboratory of Molecular Immunology is directed at defining the intercellular communication pathways controlling immune responses. The lab's work is focused on the Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)-related cytokines in regulating decisions of cell survival and death, especially in responses to viral pathogens. Translational research is redirecting the communication networks of TNF superfamily to alter the course of autoimmune and infectious disease and cancer. The laboratory’s research focuses on the LTβR/LIGHT and HVEM/LIGHT/BTLA/CD160 signaling pathways and their role in immune development, autoimmunity, host response to viral pathogens and cancer.
A position is open for a RESEARCH ASSOCIATE II with potential for growth. A successful candidate will work with senior scientists in the lab on a wide range of experiments as part of projects which may include grant funded studies and collaborative translational studies with Pharma R&D teams. The candidate will be expected to perform a variety of biochemical, molecular and cell biological laboratory techniques including, but not limited to: cell-based assays, molecular cloning, PCR, mammalian tissue culture, flow cytometry and ELISA. Work with in vivo animal models may be required.
Under general direction from the Principal Investigator, a successful candidate will also be responsible for performing functions related to the day-to-day operations of the laboratory including, but not limited to: ordering and inventorying reagents and supplies, effective operation of laboratory equipment, implementation of laboratory and institute policies by lab staff and serving as a liaison between the lab and institute departments such as EH&S.
