The Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, University of Maryland 
School of Medicine is actively seeking a post-doctoral fellow to become
involved in studies of the immunobiology of the prostate under the direction 
of Dr. Richard B. Alexander, Associate Professor. The work involves the 
characterization of specific T cell recognition of prostatic antigens and 
the identification of such antigens in mice and humans. The goal of this 
line of inquiry is the development of potential immunotherapeutic strategies 
for treating prostatic cancer as well as gaining an understanding of chronic 
prostatitis as a potential auto-immune disease. The contribution of the 
immune-system to other prostatic diseases such as obstructive uropathy are 
also under investigation. The project is appropriate for a person who desires 
to work on a problem of enormous clinical relevance that is translatable to 
the care of patients with diseases causing significant morbidity and 
mortality. A 2 year commitment to this project is expected.
The successful candidate will have received the Ph.D. degree, preferably in 
immunology, but other routes to training and fields of study with appropriate 
experience will be considered. The successful candidate will have a solid 
foundation in experimental work in immunology and immunotherapy using murine 
and human cells and models. The potential for promotion to a permanent faculty 
position is a possibility for the appropriate individual. Salary is negotiable 
and full benefits including a State of Maryland health insurance plan are 
provided. The University is an equal opportunity employer. Minorities and 
women are encouraged to apply.
