Lab/Area: Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology
Description: The new Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology seeks to recruit faculty at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. Candidates must have a strong background in immunology, genomics, genetics, genome engineering, synthetic biology and/or clinical immunotherapy, and significant achievements and meaningful promise in their field. We invite applications from scientists with Ph.D., M.D. (or equivalent degree), or M.D/Ph.D. degrees (or equivalent degrees) who are establishing or have established a research program in genomic immunology research. Relevant areas of research include, but are not limited to: • Functional genomic studies in cells of the immune system • Genome engineering to enhance adoptive cellular therapies • Genetic/genomic studies of human diseases of the immune system Investigators will be expected to develop extramurally sponsored research programs and educate, mentor, and develop graduate and medical students. Successful candidate(s) will be appointed to an appropriate UCSF department as an Assistant, Associate or Full Professor (in residence or ladder-rank), and will be assigned dedicated research space on the UCSF Parnassus Campus and/or at Gladstone Institutes at Mission Bay.
About Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology To harness the immense potential offered by immunotherapies, the Gladstone-UCSF Institute of Genomic Immunology combines emerging biomedical technologies at the intersection of human immunology, genomics, CRISPR genome engineering, computational biology, and synthetic biology. This institute’s scientists deepen knowledge of how DNA sequences control cell functions in the human immune system. Their discoveries will enable the next generation of immunotherapies for cancer, autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases, and other inflammatory diseases.
This institute is the result of a close partnership between Gladstone Institutes and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). With lab space both at Mission Bay and Parnassus, it creates a unified community across the two campuses and combines UCSF’s world-class immunology and planned cell therapy efforts with Gladstone’s expertise in the host-pathogen interface, iPS cells, computational biology, and CRISPR gene editing technologies.
