New Post-Doctoral Fellowship Position in human immune tolerance and regulatory T-cells: University o

The Alberta Diabetes Institute and the Alberta Transplant Institute at the University of Alberta are seeking a highly-motivated and creative postdoctoral research scientist to examine mechanisms of immune tolerance in transplant and autoimmune disease such as Type 1 Diabetes with specific emphasis on the production, characterization and use of thymic-derived regulatory T-cells (Tregs). The successful candidate will lead the development of a Treg Core and employ a broad range of molecular and immunological techniques across disciplines, moving toward GMP-production and clinical application. They will join a dynamic group of researchers with a focused goal of harnessing the therapeutic potential of thymic Treg cells.


  • Ph.D. degree in immunology and/or immune tolerance

  • Clear and effective communication skills

  • Scientific creativity, reliability, and independence in research

  • Research experience and/or demonstrated interest in immune tolerance


  • - Extensive experience in human and mouse immunology

  • - Expertise in models of immune tolerance

  • - Experience in Treg cell isolation and characterization

The ideal candidate will have the ability to work comfortably and collaboratively with a diverse group of researchers.
