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 laboratory of Jonathan Peled is seeking a highly motivated and successful individual with a background in microbiology/microbiome, immunology, and/or prior experience or interest in computational/bioinformatics approaches. The lab focuses on investigating how the gut microbiome interacts with the host immune system in the context of cancer immunotherapy and allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. This includes investigations in mouse models, with cultivated commensal organisms, and human biospecimens. As well, we have a focus on pre-clinical investigation of novel therapeutic approaches that have potential for translation into the clinic.
Our group is highly collaborative, both within MSK and outside. The laboratory seeks to develop a diverse and multi-disciplinary team of students, postdocs, and research technicians.
Investigation of mechanisms by which Enterococci exacerbate graft-vs-host diseases.
Understanding how environmental exposures (e.g. diet, antibiotics) mediate or mitigate microbiome injury in patients receiving cancer therapy or mouse models thereof.
Identifying microbiome-derived metabolites that modulate host immunity.
