Job Description

The Emily Cheng laboratory at the Human Oncology & Pathogenesis Program is seeking highly motivated and successful individuals to study the molecular mechanisms of cell death and their implications in tumorigenesis, tumor-microenvironment interactions, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy (Science 330: 1390-1393; Cancer Cell 39: 1245-1261; Nature Cancer 3: 188-202; Molecular Cell 36: 487-499; Nature Cell Biology 8: 1348-1358; Nature Cell Biology 17: 1270-1281; Nature Communications 7: 13131;). The research projects are aimed at delineating aberrant survival/death signaling pathways in cancer, studying epigenetic regulation of cell death and epigenetic mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapy, interrogating the impact of different types of cell death (apoptosis, BAX/BAK-dependent immunogenic cell death, pyroptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis, etc.) on tumor-immune crosstalk and immunotherapy, and identifying therapeutic strategies that trigger potent immunogenic cell death in cancer.

 

The ideal candidate should have:

  • Ph.D. degree
  • Strong background in cancer biology, immunology, and mouse models
  • Good publication record
