Job Description

The Ochando laboratory investigates the origin, development, and immune function of macrophages in the context of organ transplantation. His laboratory has recently discovered that trained immunity represents a previously unrecognized pathway that mediates allograft rejection. To prevent the detrimental effects of trained macrophages, the Ochando laboratory developed a novel revolutionary targeted therapeutic delivery approach in which drug-loaded nanobiologics that specifically target macrophages in vivo and induce long-term allograft acceptance.
Dr. Ochando is requesting a post-doctoral scientist, with responsibilities that include:
• developing nanoparticles for cancer and transplantation studies
• planning and conducting experiments
• generating and d analyzing data
• presenting results to senior/other research staff
• writing research papers, reports, reviews and summaries
• preparing research proposals and funding applications
• supervising junior staff including technicians
• keeping up to date with relevant scientific and technical developments
• attending national and international conferences
