Postdoctoral Positions Available in Molecular and Cellular
Immunology/Microbiology

	Positions immediately available to study the recognition of
nonpeptide antigens by human gd T cells (Nature 1995; 375:155, Immunity
1995; 3:495).  We find that small, nonpeptide prenyl pyrophosphates produced
by bacteria and tumor cells stimulate human Vg2Vd2+ T cells.

	Areas of study include (1) the identification of a novel antigen
presenting protein for this new class of antigens, (2) purification and
identification of new nonpeptide antigens from Mycobacteria and other
bacteria and tumor cells, (3) determination of contact residues in the
Vg2Vd2 T cell receptor, and (4) characterization of an in vivo monkey model
to determine the biological effects of gd T cells.

	A wide variety of background experiences are welcome including
cellular and molecular immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, and
organic chemistry.  The lab is well funded and is located in a state of the
art research facility with new equipment and an excellent educational
environment.
