Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the world’s premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a comprehensive cancer center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers.

The labs of Wolchok, Merghoub, and Balachandran are seeking a highly motivated and creative scientist with a strong background in immunology. Our lab is interested in understanding how the spectrum of cancer antigens modulate T cell phenotype, function, fate, and plasticity in human cancer.

The ideal candidate should have:
• A PhD in molecular or cancer biology or related field (or scheduled for completion)
• Proficiency in in vitro and in vivo cellular immunologic techniques including flow cytometry, mouse models, animal surgical techniques, and ideally familiar with common molecular biology techniques
• Knowledge of lymphoid cell biology, including innate lymphoid cells and T lymphocytes is highly desired but not essential
