The research focus of the Kwok Laboratory is the study of antigen specific CD4+ T cells using tetramers. Historically, T cells with known antigen specificity have been difficult to detect and isolate. The use of class II tetramer reagents has provided a more effective approach for studying CD4+ T cell responses.
A Research Technician is needed for laboratory work focusing on studying human CD4+ T cells. Experience in cell culture and flow cytometry is required. The ability to communicate and discuss results is essential.
Experience with ELISA or ELISPOT assays along with biochemical and cellular biology techniques is preferred.
Research Technician I
The candidate should have a B.A. or B.S. degree in a scientific field.
Research Technician II
The candidate should have a B.A. or B.S. degree in a scientific field and a minimum of 2-3 years of progressively responsible work experience in a scientific research laboratory.
