Tumor immunology to treat myeloid malignancies Post-Doctoral Fellowship
The Paczesny laboratory is seeking highly motivated candidates for a post-doctoral fellowship studying tumor immunology to treat myeloid malignancies. The major interests of the lab are discovering and validating new biomarkers in tumor immunology, generating new cell-based immunotherapies such as T9IL33 recently published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine and highlighted in the New England Journal of Medicine, as well as developing new small molecules based on discovery of novel targets. In this position, the postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to develop and lead projects using several cutting-edge model systems including novel xenograft in vivo systems, and primary patient samples. The postdoctoral fellow will also gain extensive experience and training in proteomics, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation biology, and pre-clinical study development.
