Post-doc Position Available – Metastasis Via Exosome-Modulates Bregs

Position Description:

If you are ambitious and want to make a difference in science, the immunoregulation section at the National Institute on Aging ( welcomes you to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship to study the role of cancer exosomes in modulation of regulatory B cells (Bregs), such as clinical and biological relevancies of exosomal enzymes and lipids. The study will be performed in close collaboration with Janssen R&D. The Immunoregulation section studies immune regulation in cancer and immune dysregulation in aging to develop immunotherapeutic strategies tailored for the elderly. The group found a unique type of Bregs that play essential role in cancer metastasis. They suppress antitumor effector immune responses, induce Tregs, and educate the regulatory function of cancer-expanded myeloid suppressive cells.


Interested candidates must have a doctoral degree with less than five years of relevant postdoctoral experience, and have a background in molecular biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry, and immunology.

To Apply:

Candidates should send CV including list of publications, cover letter, and names/contact information of three references to Arya Biragyn, PhD, at
