Our laboratory studies the role of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) and NK cells in the context of cancer. In particular, we aim to understand how these cells differentiate and influence the tumor cells in the tumor microenvironment. We have evidence for significant plasticity and heterogeneity of ILCs in human solid malignancies, such as head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma, and we are studying the mechanisms underlying this plasticity. Depending on the profiles of the ILC subsets, we believe these cells may be pro-tumorigenic or anti-tumorigenic. We are looking for someone interested in a postdoctoral fellowship to pursue these studies in primary patient samples and using in vivo and in vitro model systems. The candidate should have experience with multi-parameter flow cytometry and human immune cell profiling, in vivo mouse models, single-cell RNA-sequencing, and functional immunology assays. Ideally, the candidate will also have mass cytometry (CyTOF) and bioinformatics experience. We are looking for highly motivated, independent, team-oriented, positive individuals.

Required Qualifications: 
  • The candidate should have extensive experience with multi-parameter flow cytometry and human immune cell profiling, in vivo mouse models, single-cell RNA-sequencing, and functional immunology assays.
  • Ideally, the candidate will also have mass cytometry (CyTOF) and bioinformatics experience. We are looking for highly motivated, independent, team-oriented, positive individuals.
  • The applicant must have a PhD and/or MD.
Required Application Materials:
