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.

 

Requirements:

·         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
