Postdoctoral Associate Position Available in the Siolas Lab

The Siolas lab is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate to work within the Department of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. The Siolas Laboratory conducts research on cancer genes that influence the immune microenvironment focusing on gastrointestinal mouse models of pancreatic cancer and colon cancer. The lab uses techniques in genetics and immunology to understand how tumors develop and become resistant to therapy using mouse models. Our research laboratory is a multi-level training group consisting of people with different backgrounds, training levels and skill sets.

We seek an outstanding individual with Ph.D. training in cancer biology, genetics or immunology to study the mechanistic basis of tumor immune evasion in gastro-intesinal cancer. Learn more about our research at:

The fellow will join an expanding research group focused on understanding the relationship between cancer genes and the immune microenvironment. The fellow will lead laboratory-based studies to identify immune phenotypes associated with different tumor genotypes and sites of origins with opportunities to expand into additional cancer sites. As an active member of an interdisciplinary team, the fellow will build relationships with a range of scientific colleagues, publish peer-reviewed work, present at national conferences, and gain experience in grant writing.
