A highly motivated postdoctoral fellow is sought to work on tumor immunology with a strong background in biology preferentially cellular immunology in the Vaccine Branch, Molecular Immunogenetics and Vaccine Research Section, National Cancer Inst., National Inst. Of Health. The tumor immunology group in the laboratory is exploring mechanisms of improving vaccines and immunotherapy for cancer, especially by discovering new principles to enhance and steer T cell immune responses. The group is focusing on negative immunoregulatory mechanisms used for immune evasion by cancer cells. The postdoctoral fellow will work on a project to understand the negative regulatory mechanisms of tumor immunity especially the mechanisms initiated by NKT cells. Group members also have an opportunity to gain knowledge of HIV/mucosal immunology by interacting with the HIV research group in the lab.
Brief Description of Research Area: Tumor Cellular Immunology and Cancer Vaccines
Applicants must have Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and relevant laboratory experience, but fewer than 5 years postdoctoral training.
