Postdoc - University of Mississippi

Dr. Thomas Werfel’s Interdisciplinary NanoBioSciences (iNBS) Lab at the University of Mississippi (Lab Website) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in Nanomedicine/Cancer Immunotherapy to work on a project funded by the NIH. The project aims to develop nanomedicines for the targeted delivery of immune agonists to breast tumors to increase cancer immunotherapy response rates. The project will involve controlled radical polymerization of glycopolymers with complex architecture, physicochemical optimization and characterization of nanoparticles, in vitro evaluation of cell targeting, and in vivo evaluation of immunogenicity and immunotherapy efficacy. In addition, time will be given for the pursuit of the researcher’s independent research ideas, grantsmanship, time management, and training in teaching and mentorship.
