Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Sankar Ghosh, Chairman of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University Medical Center, New York in the areas of T-cell biology and cancer immunology. Following up on our recent discoveries on the role of NF-kB in maintaining immune tolerance1,2, the candidate(s) will explore the function of NF-kB in T-cell responses in animal models of cancer and utilize large-scale screening methods to identify novel NF-kB inhibitors for cancer therapy. The Postdoctoral Scientist will also be responsible for the supervision of technicians and student trainees, and should ultimately procure independent external research funding.

The candidate should be a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g. immunology, hematology, or oncology). We are seeking hard working, highly motivated candidates with background in cellular/molecular immunology and experience in studying mouse models of cancer or autoimmunity. Research experience in molecular biology and biochemistry is desirable, and experience in bioinformatics and next generation sequencing is an added plus.

Candidates should email their CV and cover letter, a summary of background and research interests to Dr. Sankar Ghosh:
