  • An interest in translational melanoma research.
  • Exceptionally motivated, creative and committed to scientific discovery.
  • Strong background and publication record in molecular and cellular biology, particularly murine models and experience with mammalian cell culture.
  • Affinity for quantitation and computation, and systems biology is advantageous.


  • PhD and/or MD required.
  • Experience and interest in immunology, molecular/cellular biology, mouse models or cancer preferred.
  • The ideal candidate should have published at least one research article in an international peer-reviewed journal as the first author.
