We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow to join our Cancer Moonshot Immuno-Oncology Translational Network (IOTN) project.  Our research laboratory is located at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center (UMRCC) at the North Campus Research Complex (NCRC). We are a translational immunology group that has made the pioneering discovery on the mechanisms driving cancer resistance to immunotherapy. The NIH-funded position will address significant questions at the interface of cancer immunotherapy and metabolism. Our research group employs a spectrum of cutting-edge genetic, single-cell, and immune engineering approaches to identify novel mechanisms driving cancer immune escape and sensitize cold cancers to immune checkpoint blockade. Our laboratory is well-equipped with close collaborations with scientists across various disciplines.

NCRC is a major U-M initiative that is providing a platform for highly accomplished investigators to make transformational advances in oncology.  UMRCC at NCRC currently comprises 30 investigators, 19 of whom are located in Building 520. UMRCC at NCRC will ultimately include upwards of 40 investigators representing 10 schools and institutes across the University, eight of these 10 are ranked in the top ten nationally. UMRCC at NCRC researchers are characterized by a track record of high impact discoveries, significant levels of NIH peer-reviewed funding, a demonstrated commitment to team science, an entrepreneurial spirit, the potential for interaction with biotechnology hubs at the NCRC and a demonstrated dedication to translating basic research findings into clinical applications.

The successful candidate should be a recent Ph.D. graduate with a degree in Immunology, Cancer Biology, Genetics, Metabolism, or Cell and Molecular Biology. Individuals with expertise in mouse models or immunology are strongly encouraged to apply.
