A postdoctoral position is available starting March 1st or later 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 in Toronto, Ontario. The fellow will study the mechanisms of type I interferon mediated inflammation and immunosuppression that modulate innate and adaptive immune responses in the tumor microenvironment in mice and humans. This project will use cutting-edge technologies, including single-cell RNA-seq and novel CyTOF assays we have developed, to uncover new mechanisms regulating anti-tumor immunity and subsequent responses to immunotherapy.
Candidates should have a background in cellular and/or molecular immunology with experience in type I interferon and/or tumor immunology.
PhD or MD degree awarded within the past 1-2 years
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 with a curriculum vitae and brief description of research interests to Dr. David Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org)
