Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cancer Immunology

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/ Harvard Medical School

Boston, MA

We have established a cancer immunology training program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, with the goal of training the next generation of leaders in this vibrant field. Immunology is one of the leading disciplines at Harvard Medical School. Trainees in cancer immunology will have the opportunity to work with leading scientists and will be exposed to the latest discoveries in this dynamic field. Discoveries in basic immunology research at HMS have the potential to result in significant advances in cancer immunology and inform novel approaches to treatment.

Leading investigators in cancer immunology are members of this training program. Our investigators have a history of significant accomplishments in cancer immunology, both in basic and translational research. Investigators can be found here. 


We have highly active programs in basic, translational and clinical cancer immunology. This creates opportunities for classical ‘bench to bedside’ collaborations yet importantly also ‘bedside to bench’ research. An important example is the investigation of the cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for responsiveness and resistance to cancer immunotherapy.


Highly-motivated candidates with a recent PhD or MD/PhD in biomedical sciences and experience in immunology, molecular biology and/or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Candidates with strong records of scientific accomplishment are preferred.

Interested candidates should apply with the following:

  • Application Form*
  • Personal Data Sheet*
  • Cover letter explaining experience in the field, which mentor/mentees you would like to work with and how you would add to their research.
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV) with published and pending manuscripts
  • Statement of Research Interests relevant to Cancer Immunology (1 page)
  • Name, title and email address of three references

*Application form and Personal Data Sheet can be found on the Cancer Immunology Training Website.
