We are looking for a talented, energetic postdoctoral or A visiting scholar fellow to join the Choi lab at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, located in Chicago, IL.
We are seeking highly motivated research fellows with strong interest in cancer genetics/immunology to analyze molecular defects that occur in T cell lymphomas and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which these mutations contribute to disease.
These efforts will provide important insights into fundamental T cell biology, i.e. T cell circuitry, identify clinically relevant biomarkers, and lead to novel lineage-specific therapeutic targets. Current projects are myriad. They include but are not limited to identification and molecular classification of aggressive subtypes and strategies to target these cancers with immunotherapy.
The successful applicant must have excellent communication skills and a strong ability to design experiments and interpret experimental data.
Experience and interest in T cell biology, cancer genomics, and epigenetics is preferred, but we are looking for hard working, creative scientists who are passionate about science. Preference will be given to candidates with multiple first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals.
We are a well-funded group who employs cutting-edge high dimensional strategies to identify mechanisms governing T cell biology during immune homeostasis and cancer. To learn more about us, please visit our website at http://choilaboratory.northwestern.edu or http://choilaboratory.org.
Our group is a collegial collection of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students from around the world. The lab is highly collaborative and highly productive. To date, much of our work has focused on the elucidation of the genomics of T cell cancers. These have led to multiple manuscripts including Choi, et al. Nature Genetics.
2015 PMID: 26192916; Park, et al. Blood. 2017 PMID: 28694326; Daniels, et al. 2020 Nature Communications. PMID: 32286303. We currently have additional manuscripts submitted at Immunity and Cancer Discovery.
Our lab is on the fifth floor of the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center of Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, which is home to many of the elite biomedical researchers at Northwestern. The Lurie Center and the rest of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is located in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, blocks away from beautiful Lake Michigan.
Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae and a list of at least three references to Dr. Jaehyuk Choi (Jaehyuk.firstname.lastname@example.org).
西北大学校徽上的座右铭是Quaecumque sunt vera，这是拉丁文，源于《新约·腓立比书》，意为“凡是真实的”。另外校徽上一本翻开的书上还有一句希腊语：ho logos pleres charitos kai aletheias，意思是“充满荣光和真理的道”。它来自《约翰福音》：“道成了肉身住在我们中间，充充满满的有恩典有真理。我们也见过他的荣光，正是父独生子的荣光”。这两句格言反映出了西北大学创立者的价值观，体现出了其卫理宗的遗产。
西北大学研究生录取要求为GPA3.5+, GRE 320+, GMAT 680+, 雅思6.5分或托福100分。不过西北大学一向以严格录取出名，尤其是申请每年获得全额奖学金研究生、博士的学生，其录取率甚至低于1%。可以说西北大学几乎是美国录取率最低的学校之一。
美国西北大学医学院是美国医学院Top20,是美国最顶尖的研究型医学院。是每年全美医学院申请人数最多也最为激烈的医学院之一。同时西北大学医学院由于其实力强大的附属医院Northwestern Memorial Hospital(2014年全美医院排名第6)，和每年超过3.5亿美元的科研经费（3.898亿美元2014年）而在全美具有很高的认可度。西北大学医学院坐落在繁华的芝加哥市中心，始建于1926年的医学院大楼Ward Memorial Building是美国第一座学术摩天楼。
