The Oncology & Immuno-Oncology team at Regeneron is seeking a highly motivated Postdoc to lead research into the mechanisms of clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) and the transition from benign carrier state to overt malignancy. You will work closely with peers across oncology, hematology, aging and the Regeneron Genetics Center while pursuing an independent research project. The ideal candidate will be a creative thinker with a background in blood cancer, hematology, or immunology research.
CHIP is a condition where hematopoietic stem cells acquire leukemia-associated mutations and begin to clonally expand relative to their peers. While CHIP is not a cancer, CHIP carriers are at elevated risk for future blood cancers and numerous other diseases. Our team at Regeneron has been working to understand what mechanisms underlie this transition from benign carrier state to cancer, and whether there are opportunities to intercept disease in the early, pre-malignant stage. If you would like to play a key role in shaping our understanding of CHIP and other pre-malignant clonal cell expansion disorders, apply now!
In this role a typical day might include:
Independently developing and performing bioassays to screen and characterize key signaling molecules and how they participate in normal and malignant hematopoiesis.
Animal experimentation, including dissection of tumors/major immune organs for immune cell isolation and subsequent analysis.
Designing sophisticated flow cytometry (FACS) panels and performing FACS analysis on immune cells isolated from tumors and tissues.
Independently crafting, planning, and performing complex anti-tumor efficacy studies in mice.
Maintaining tumor cell lines and engineering cell lines using various methods including lipofection, nucleofection, and viral transduction.
Analyzing data using biological and statistical software such as Flowjo, Prism, Excel, etc.
Collaborating closely with cross-functional teams across the company.
Compiling results across experiments and programs and presenting them to multi-disciplinary teams, including translational teams, and senior management.
Participating in post-doctoral program activities (e.g., meetings and research conferences)
Continuously following the current relevant literature, attending scientific meetings, and maintaining expertise in hematology and hematological malignancies.
This role may be for you if you:
Are a creative thinker with a track record of productivity.
Possess a strong desire to contribute to cutting-edge research centered on understanding the molecular underpinnings of how clonally expanded blood cells cause disease.
Have outstanding scientific skills, including critical and analytical thinking.
Have strong communication and presentation skills.
Enjoy actively participating and effectively collaborating in cross-functional projects that involve multiple teams.
To be considered for this role, you must have a Ph.D. in oncology, immunology, hematology, or cell biology. We are looking for someone with hands-on experience in techniques such as flow cytometry, cell culture, and mouse experimentation. Expertise in hematopoietic stem cell biology and/or immunology is highly desired. You will have the opportunity to lead a research project in a fast-paced and results-driven environment.
Please note, the specific starting salary for this role is $86,000.
