Post-doctoral Fellow Cancer Biology, Irie Lab, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The post-doctoral fellow or research scientist will be engaged in translational projects focused on understanding the microenvironment of breast cancers, particularly triple negative breast cancer. We will be investigating immune cell components of the microenvironment and their contribution to the growth and metastases of breast cancer, as well as their contribution to treatment resistance. The fellow will be identifying and validating candidate therapeutic targets for triple negative and other high risk, treatment resistant breast cancers. Immunology, cancer biology background and in vivo mouse model experience highly desirable..
