• Ph.D. in Immunology or related field with less than 5 years postdoctoral experience and with a track record of scientific accomplishment as exemplified by scientific publications.

• Strong knowledge of mouse immunology, especially T cell immunology.

• Experience in tissue immune cell isolation and characterization at cellular and molecular or genetic levels or experience with T cell clonality analysis is highly desirable.

• Under the supervision of the mentors, work independently and as part of the team to conceive, design, execute, analyze/interpret, and refine experiments including, but not limited to, in vivo mouse studies and in vitro immunological characterization, isolation, and phenotyping of immune cell subpopulations and their functional states from mouse organs.

• Collaborate with computational biology and bioinformatics scientists to analyze immune cell subtypes, immune networks/pathways, and functional traits.

• May need to develop and use in vitro assays and or IHC assays to explore the mechanisms of immune-mediated organ toxicities.

• Keep abreast with the literature in the related field including clinical and preclinical toxicities associated with immune check point inhibitors, and mouse immunology cutting edge technologies, especially in the area of isolation and characterization of immune cells at cellular and molecular levels.

• Contribute to the generation of data graphs and tables for publication and drafting of manuscripts.

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the Immunotoxicology group of the Pfizer Drug Safety Research and Development Department. The postdoctoral fellow will work with mentors and Pfizer colleagues from various lines and functions to investigate immune-mediated toxicities associated with immune check point inhibitors in mouse models. The postdoc is expected to be a highly motivated, independent yet highly collaborative team player, and be interested in exploring immune mechanisms of immune mediated organ toxicities.A career at Pfizer offers opportunity, ownership and impact.
