Postdoctoral Associate in Tumor Immunology: 

  • Weill Cornell Medicine (New York City)

Responsibilities and Qualifications:

  • PhD in biomedical sciences, highly motivated, curious and creative.
  • Strong background and research experience in Immunology and/or Cancer Biology.
  • Expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, flow cytometry and animal models of disease.
  • Excellent communication, organizational and writing skills are a must.


We offer: 


  • A unique postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Juan R. Cubillos-Ruiz, Assistant Professor of Immunology at Weill Cornell Medicine, in the lively city of New York.
  • Harnessing the natural ability of our immune system to eliminate malignant cells is the most promising anti-cancer strategy since the development of chemotherapy. However, suppressive microenvironmental conditions within tumor masses restrict the optimal anti-cancer activity of immune cells. Our group recently discovered that abnormal Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress responses contribute to this process by causing severe immune cell dysfunction in the tumor microenvironment (Cell, 2015). Hence, research in our laboratory focuses on identifying, understanding and disabling new mechanisms of immune-suppression coordinated by sustained ER stress in cancer.
  • Our lab combines immunology, genomics and metabolomics to mechanistically characterize how ER stress responses cripple anti-tumor immunity.  
  • In addition, we exploit genome editing and nanotechnology tools to develop new therapies that unleash potent anti-tumor immune responses. The Cancer Research Institute, Stand Up to Cancer and the Department of Defense currently support our research program. Thus, the candidate will have an exceptional opportunity to pioneer research on a new and very exciting area of cancer immunotherapy.
  • The highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment of Weill Cornell Medicine also provides outstanding career development opportunities for postdoctoral trainees.

How to apply:

  • please submit your CV, a cover letter with a summary of research interests and experience, and a list of 3 professional references to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
