A Research Fellow position is available with the Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) group within Hematology Research.
The CLL research group has a major focus on understanding the nature and scope of the leukemic microenvironment in the pathobiology of CLL. For example, significant advances of our group have included detailing the impact of stromal cells and their secreted products on leukemic B cells and the ability of CLL B cells to modify the stromal cell functional status.
Our current needs are to have the applicant capable of using both molecular and other relevant tools of cell biology to further dissect out these critical cell-cell interactions. The other major focus in the CLL laboratory is the investigation of unique targets within the leukemic B cell of CLL that permits enhanced targeted therapies for these patients. An interest, or prior experience, in molecular biologic and biochemistry approaches is preferred. Prior laboratory experience is required.
