Summary Description

Position Summary: The goal of this project is to define the requirement for the eukaryotic DNA helicase in human natural killer (NK) cell development. This project arises from the study of human NK cell deficiency, and we have extensive experience in the use of primary human cells to model and manipulate human NK cell development in vitro. Positions are currently open on an NIH-funded project (NIH-R01AI137275) with the aim of understanding why mutations in the eukaryotic DNA helicase lead to isolated human NK cell deficiency and extreme susceptibility to viral infection and malignancy.

What we offer:

● A supportive environment with the opportunity for intellectual and professional growth
● Opportunities to gain experience in cutting edge genetic and cell biological techniques, including in vitro modeling of human immune cell differentiation
● Excellent environment and resources at Columbia University in New York NY
● Fully funded position (renewed annually for up to 5 years)

Minimum Degree Required

MD and/or PhD degree required

What we seek:

● Collaborative, ambitious individuals with a strong interest in our research and environment
