A postdoctoral fellowship is available at the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center (VIC), Massachusetts General Hospital. The individual will work as part of a research team with other scientists on translational medical research associated with novel therapeutic approaches to cancer. Responsibilities will involve immuno-therapeutic studies in established animal models of disease and application of immunologic tools to define key mechanisms of action. The fellow will be directly responsible for the conduct of experiments and will work with the team in analysis of data. Projects will involve work with outside academic and industry collaborators. The fellow will be under the overall supervision of the Director of the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center, Mark Poznansky, MD, PhD.
