We are always looking for motivated, passionate, dynamic, fun and hard-working individuals to join the lab. If interested, please contact Dr. Ghajar directly. We currently have positions open for:
To learn and execute T cell engineering protocols to aid pre-clinical studies in immunotherapy.
Graduate students interested in 2020-2021 rotations. Potential projects include:
a. identify determinants of vascular heterogeneity within the brain or bone marrow, and study how these affect DTC dormancy and therapeutic resistance within specific regions of these tissues;
b. identify and study rare stem-like cell populations within breast cancer brain metastases and measure their contribution to therapeutic resistance and/or recurrence; or
c. unravel the signaling that links DNA damage in vascular endothelium to a chemoprotective secretome that protects DTCs from therapy.
With a specific interest in:
a. Any of the above (a-c), or
b. Developing novel technologies to profile DTCs and their microenvironments in architecturally intact tissue (human + mouse)
