The Cheng lab (https://thechenglab.com/) is looking for an enthusiastic and independent Postdoctoral Fellow to join our dynamic and competitive group in human immunology research in the Institute of Biomedical Science at Academia Sinica, Taiwan. Our research focuses on deep-profiling human virus-specific T cells during viral infection, vaccination, or virus-associated cancer by using highly multiplexed combinatorial peptide-MHC tetramer staining, mass cytometry, single-cell sequencing methods (Cheng et al., 2019. Science Immunology; Cheng et al., 2021. Immunity), and high-dimensional analysis (Newell and Cheng., 2016. Nature Immunology). We are interested in dissecting the different arms of human adaptive immune responses, and characterize the functional and cellular heterogeneity of tissue-resident memory T cells or exhausted T cells. We are currently working on chronic hepatitis B infection (HBV), HBV-associated hepatocellular carcinoma and liver disease, SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination, human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers.
