Job Description

NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Ferrone’s research group in the Department of Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The research  project is particularly focused on developing antibody-based immunotherapeutic strategies for the treatment of solid tumors  with special emphasis on strategies to counteract the escape mechanisms utilized by tumor cells.
