Exciting postdoctoral training opportunity to study tumor immunosuppression and to develop new cancer immunotherapy at the University of Pennsylvania

The Fan lab is seeking one or two Postdoctoral Fellow(s) to investigate microenvironment-mediated tumor immunosuppression and to develop new adoptive cell therapy for brain cancers. 

These NIH-funded positions will involve studies of macrophage- and MDSC-induced glioma immunosuppression, with an emphasis on understanding vascular microenvironment-mediated regulatory mechanism. We aim to target cancer microenvironment to improve or develop new NK/T cell-based immunotherapy for brain cancers. Highly motivated individuals with 0-1 year of postdoctoral experience and a doctoral degree in immunology, cancer biology, or a related area are encouraged to apply. Practical experience with molecular and cellular biology techniques and animal tumor models is required. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in cancer immunology and cell immunotherapy. The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. 

Please email a cover letter, current CV and bibliography, brief statement of research interests, and the names/addresses of 3 references to Yi Fan at

Application review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
