A Postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Hematopoietic Biology and Malignancy, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, United States. This position reports to Dr. Jin Seon Im in the Department of Hematopoietic Biology and Malignancy.

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to perform hands-on experiments to evaluate human invariant Natural Killer (iNK) T cells modified with chimeric antigen receptor targeting hematologic malignancies and investigate mechanism of immune-regulation by modified iNK T cells with xenograft GVHD/GVL model. The fellow will also be involved in study design, data analysis and manuscript preparation by attending lab meetings, journal clubs, and research seminars.

The Postdoctoral Fellows primary research focus is to gain mechanistic understanding of immune-modulation by modified and unmodified iNK T cells in tumor immune-microenvironment, and train and learn study design, data analysis and manuscript writing.
