The Cheng lab (https://thechenglab.com/) is looking for an enthusiastic and excellent Research Technician 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, and 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 their functional and cellular heterogeneity, particularly tissue-resident memory T cells and follicular helper T cells. We are currently working on chronic hepatitis B infection (HBV), HBV-associated hepatocellular carcinoma and liver disease, and SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination.
Preferred qualifications (candidates who have the following criteria will be considered as favored):
