We are looking for a talented, enthusiastic, and hard-working scientist to work on an exciting project about disease-relevant B cell repertoires in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. A background in immunology is required, as is a passion for human-based research; MDs and MD/PhDs are explicitly encouraged to apply. We study freshly obtained cerebrospinal fluid and blood samples from patients which sometimes become available at inconvenient hours and without much advance notice. Accordingly, flexibility in work hours is an absolute requirement. Our lab is embedded in the UCSF MS Research Group, collaborates closely with the biotech industry, and is equipped with a dedicated cell sorter and next-gen sequencer, giving access to a unique breadth of expertise and technologies. This environment together with the greater UCSF Community offer ample opportunity for professional and academic development. Unfortunately, we do no support H1-B visas.
If you’re interested in this position please submit your resume, a cover letter describing your interest, and the names of at least three references to Dr. von Büdingen.
