A Research technician position is available in the Department of Pediatrics and Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical School. The goal of our research is to elucidate the baseline immune characteristics and changes in local and systemic immune response to an immunotherapeutic approach in murine models of pediatric high-grade glioma. The project also involves epigenetics, single-cell RNA sequencing, bioinformatics analysis, and flow cytometry. This project will robustly contribute to the design and implementation of this novel immunotherapeutic strategy in a first-in-pediatric phase 1clinical trial for pediatric brain tumor patients.
