The Thoracic Surgery Research Laboratory at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) in Buffalo, New York, USA, is seeking a post-doctoral research fellow for a position that is funded for at least three years.
In collaboration with RPCI’s Center for Cancer Immunotherapy, the fellow will participate in and develop research projects on human lung cancer immunobiology and immunotherapy. The fellow will also have the opportunity to initiate or participate in other research projects.
The post-doctoral fellow will be supported by a laboratory technician and will have access to Roswell Park’s highly functional shared resources.
The small but well-organized Thoracic Surgery Research Laboratory has two principal investigators, Sai Yendamuri, MD (Professor and Chair, Department of Thoracic Surgery) and Santosh Patnaik, MD, PhD (Assistant Professor, Department of Thoracic Surgery). The laboratory is engaged in basic and translational research with a focus on lung cancer, and on the biology and applications of microRNAs and RNA editing.
Guidance to the fellow will also be provided by Professor Kunle Odunsi, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for Cancer Immunotherapy and Chair, Department of Gynecologic Oncology.
The laboratory expects that the fellow will be outstanding for enthusiasm, appreciation and capability for diligent and hard work, ingenuity, profound curiosity, extensive knowledge and technical skills, and proficiency in writing and data exploration and visualization.
A PhD or MD degree, and at least two years of experience of cell and molecular biology techniques and first authorship of an original research article in a peer-reviewed journal are required of an applicant for this position.
Past research with focus on oncoimmunology, immunobiology, or tumor microenvironment, and experience in flow cytometry and isolation and experiments with primary immune cells are desired. However, highly motivated persons with a record for developing new ideas and of creative and diligent work in other areas of biomedical sciences are encouraged to apply.
The laboratory will be highly supportive of transition to independent investigatorship and will encourage and mentor the fellow to generate and seek funding for new ideas.
