Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Hematology/Oncology, Cancer Immunology

The Hematology/Oncology Department is looking for highly motivated candidates with a PhD conferred within the last three years in cellular and molecular immunology, with a preferred emphasis on cancer immunology. The Zhang laboratory functions as an integrated translational research program with the goal of designing and developing new immunotherapies and immunologic strategies for cancer treatment. The project is focused on dissecting the molecular mechanisms used for tumor immune evasion based on cutting-edge technical platforms, including CyTOF, multiplex imaging, and single-cell sequencing.

Successful applicants should have a proven academic publication track record, including first-authored publications at high profile journals, as well as excellent scientific, organizational, record-keeping, and problem-solving skills.

Candidates will conduct independent research by characterizing the immune phenotypes of the genetically modified mice and/or human specimen using cellular and molecular immunological approaches, such as genome-wide gene/protein profiling analysis. The candidates are also encouraged to explore new research areas and seek independent funding as part of their own career development.

Please send a curriculum vitae (CV), a brief cover letter summarizing current research and career goals, and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to:
