Providence Health & Services

A highly motivated Post-Doctoral Fellow is sought to join the Tumor Microenvironment Laboratory at the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute at the Providence Cancer Institute. Dr. Kristina Young’s long-term goal is to better understand immune suppression in the tumor microenvironment in order to improve existing therapies and overcome treatment resistance to both immunotherapy and standard cytotoxic therapies, with rapid translation to the clinic for the treatment of patients with cancer. Current research projects include novel mechanisms of transforming growth factor beta-mediated inhibition of CD8 T cells, combination radiation and immunotherapy, and inducing vascular maturation to enhance anti-tumor immunity.

We are looking for exceptional candidates with a PhD in Immunology, Cell & Developmental Biology, or a related field, a record of productive peer-reviewed publications, and the ability to work independently as well as in collaborative research efforts.

Candidates must be experienced in working with T cells, immunological assays, multiparameter flow cytometry, and cell culture. Experience in molecular biology, viral transduction, transfection, DNA cloning/sequencing, qPCR, and bioinformatics are highly desirable. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are required.
