Research Postdoctoral Fellow: Studies in the Immunobiology of Sarcomas - Cancer Immunology Program
Johns Hopkins University
Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Internal Number: A-120441-11
A Research Postdoctoral Fellowship position is offered in the Cancer Immunology Program at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine under the mentorship of Dr. Nicolas J. Llosa. The Laboratory of Cancer Immunology functions as a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary basic and translational research programmatic effort with the goal of developing novel immunotherapies for cancer. Our lab strategic plan focuses on the development of novel immunotherapeutics for patients affected with sarcoma, not only as monotherapies, but more importantly, in combination with other immune mediating modalities, and other conventional or experimental therapies, as part of an immuno-oncology programmatic effort. Our program is seeking an ambitious and highly motivated person to lead studies focused on elucidating the mechanisms of immune evasion and immune regulation in sarcoma. The work will involve studies in human sarcoma tissues and modeling studies in mice with the use of latest tools, such as high-dimensional flow cytometry, multiplex immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence of tissues, immunometabolism interrogations, scRNA-seq, ATAC-seq, and generation of novel recombinant proteins. The Research Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for the conceptualization, design, and statistical analyses of research studies in the field of sarcomas immunobiology, as well as the drafting of these studies academic manuscripts.
Applicants must have a PhD. and /or M.D. degree (or anticipate receiving their degree in the near future) with less than five years of postdoctoral experience. Applicants should have the ability to carry out independent research, a strong interest in interdisciplinary approaches and have published articles in peer-reviewed journals. Training in molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry, oncology and bioinformatics is preferred.

Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
