The Ribeirão Preto Medical School at the University of São Paulo (FMRP-USP) in partinership with the Albert Einstein Jewish Institute for Education and Research offers two postdoctoral positions under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jose Carlos Alves Filho. The FMRP-USP is linked to the Center for Research in Immuno-Oncology (CRIO) supported by FAPESP.
The candidates will work on projects, aiming to identify new immunoregulatory targets to promote antitumor response. The selected candidate will investigate changes in cellular metabolism and how the tumor microenvironment imposes metabolic barriers to the antitumor activity of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and macrophages. Also, the role of NETs as a protective mechanism of tumors against the immune response of patients, as well as to investigate the role of the SWI/SNF complex on gene regulation to burst immune cell activation in cancer. We are looking for highly motivated candidates capable of working independently. Previous experience in molecular biology and in in vivo cancer models is mandatory. Candidates with experience generation of genetically modified animals (Cre-Lox system) will be given priority for this position.
Please send, until August 03rd 2022, to Prof. Dr. José Carlos Alves Filho (firstname.lastname@example.org): Curriculum Vitae, a letter expressing the reasons for interest in the position, and two names of reference. The position is open to Brazilians and foreigners. Selected candidates will receive a Post-Doctoral Scholarship from FAPESP in the amount of R$ 8,479.20 monthly.
