Apply for this job


We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join the Rutz lab in the Department of Cancer Immunology at Genentech. The successful candidate will initiate an independent research project to investigate mechanisms by which the ubiquitin pathway regulates T cell responses and immunosuppression. The expectation is that this work will result in novel and important contributions to our understanding of the regulation of adaptive immune responses in cancer and chronic inflammation, as evidenced by publications in top tier scientific journals.

The Rutz lab collaborates with several investigators at Genentech and beyond, applying cellular immunology, gene-editing in primary cells, single cell sequencing, proteomics, and mouse models to study T cell biology. Currently, the lab is focused on the development of engineered T cell therapies, and the targeting of regulatory T cells for the treatment of cancer.


PhD in Immunology, Biochemistry, or Molecular Biology.

A background in T cell immunology is required.

Experience in molecular biology and signaling, CRISPR gene editing and a motivation to harness new/emerging technologies are preferred.

The successful candidate will have strong work ethics, a steadfast commitment to discovery research and a documented ability to initiate, drive and complete significant research projects, as evidenced by a strong publication record.

The candidate should also have excellent communication and organization skills and the ability to work in a highly interactive environment.
