Postdoctoral Fellow (Dr. Mauro Di Pilato)
Job posting number: #7096643
Posted: March 29, 2022
Application Deadline: May 27, 2022
Job DescriptionThe mission of our lab is to investigate the mechanisms that regulate T cell destabilization and infiltration in cancer. Specifically, we want to understand how antigen-presenting cells control Treg reprogramming and accumulation within the tumor microenvironment. Our final goal is to develop new strategies for patients that do not respond to current cancer immunotherapies.
By combining genetic mouse models and analyses of human cancer samples, the successful candidates are expected to identify which key signals are necessary for intratumoral Treg instability and expansion in order to finally provide new individualized immunotherapy approaches to patients.
Ph.D. in life or physical sciences (examples: immunology, biology, bioinformatics, physics)
Record of successful first author publications
Expertise in flow-cytometry and/or analysis of high-dimensional biological datasets
Experience in mouse models, single cell genomics, molecular cloning and microscopy
