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 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:
Strong background in cancer biology, immunology, and mouse models
Good publication record
