A postdoctoral position is available starting in the late Spring, Summer or Fall of 2021 in the Laboratory of Dr. David Brooks at the Princess Margaret Cancer Center. The postdoctoral fellow will be a part of the Tumor Immunotherapy Program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Center and the University of Toronto Department of Immunology in Toronto, Ontario. The fellow will work to understand the mechanisms of CD4 T cell differentiation and help that modulate innate and adaptive immune responses in the tumor microenvironment of mice and humans. This project will take advantage of a new model of tumor-specific CD4 T cell help we developed, in combination with cutting-edge technologies, including single-cell RNA-seq and novel CyTOF assays, to uncover the mechanisms regulating anti-tumor immunity and subsequent responses to immunotherapy.
• To be considered, the Candidate must have a strong background in immunology, with a proven track-record of success in the immunologic sciences.
• Candidate will have strong expertise in flow cytometry techniques and analysis, with previous CyTOF experience a plus.
• Applicant must be near-graduating or recently have been awarded PhD or MD/PhD degree within the last year.
• Candidates must be highly motivated, possess excellent communication skills and a strong record of scientific accomplishments, including publications in peer-reviewed journals and scientific presentations.
Applicants should respond by email to Dr. David Brooks with (1) a curriculum vitae and (2) a brief description of research interests.
