Postdoctoral Fellow – Oncology and Inflammation Research - United States  

Amgen (company)

Posted on : 01 May 2017

Project Description

The Amgen Postdoctoral Program is committed to providing future scientists with an enriching environment to inspire innovation that will contribute to the development of human therapeutics.

Dr. James Johnston in the Oncology and Inflammation Research department at Amgen, Inc. is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in the areas of immunology, protein mass spectrometry, and computational biology.

This postdoctoral project will focus on the identification of MHC Class I antigens using mass spectrometry, particularly in the setting of disrupted proteostasis. Additionally, application of computational/programming methods to large publicly available datasets (e.g. the ~1TB of human variation sequencing data from The 1000 Genomes Project) will be utilized to help predict mechanistically how these antigens are generated.

The assignment length is expected to be 3 years.

Basic Qualifications
PhD at the time of appointment

Preferred Qualifications
Immunology especially antigen generation expertise
Proteostasis expertise especially with the UPS
Mass spectrometry experience
Computational biology and genomic analyses expertise
