Join an exciting growing laboratory in the Mount Sinai Precision Immunology Institute and the Department of Radiation Oncology studying cancer immunology and the interaction of the DNA damage repair and response pathways with the host immune system. The lab looks to identify predictors of response to immunotherapy and understand the mechanisms of altered response towards the design of novel immunotherapy treatments.
Candidates should have a background in tumor biology, tumor immunology, cancer genomics or DNA repair and basic familiarity with mouse models.
Applicants with primarily a computational background are also strongly encouraged to apply.
The postdoctoral fellow will work under the guidance of a physician-scientist principal investigator and be involved in both basic and translational studies addressing fundamental but clinically-relevant topics.
Roles and responsibilities include:
· Design and conduct cutting edge experiments to gain important mechanistic insights into tumor immunology under the direction of the PI
· Work closely with collaborators to answer important questions in the field
· Be an active participant and team member in a vibrant research institution and department
· To work towards development of independent scientific ideas and post-doctoral appropriate grants (e.g., K award), with a long-term goal of independent investigator status.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai offers convenient housing options for postdoctoral fellows. Postdocs also receive support from a dedicated Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. To learn more about postdoc services and resources, please visit:
