Science jobs from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School:
An exciting postdoctoral opportunity is available at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School. We work on the molecular mechanisms by which MHC genes confer susceptibility and resistance to autoimmune diseases. Genome-wide studies have shown that the MHC has a central role in the pathogenesis of many human autoimmune diseases. Of particular interest is HLA-DM, an enzyme that edits the repertoire of peptide presented to T cells, including self-peptides that play an essential role in autoimmune processes. We have determined the molecular mechanism of HLA-DM action (Nat Immunol. 2011, 12:54; Cell 2012, 151:1557) and are now addressing its role in autoimmune diseases, in both humans and experimental animal models. Requirements for this position are a recent PhD in immunology or related field. A strong background in protein biochemistry would be a plus. To learn more about the lab, please visit our website: Please submit CV as well as name/email address of three references.
