The Barry laboratory, within the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Translational Research Program, is looking for a talented post-doctoral fellow with extensive expertise in the realm of tumor immunology. The Barry lab focuses on understanding how the immune system responds to cancer and can be manipulated to treat cancer. Our studies utilize human immunology, murine models of cancer, state-of-the-art imaging techniques, RNA sequencing techniques, and immunological techniques to explore the role of the innate immune system in controlling immune responses to cancer. We focus our research on understanding how the innate immune system, specifically dendritic and natural killer cells, shape immune responses to cancer and patient responses to common immunotherapies (see Barry et al., 2018 PMID: 29942093).

Responsibilities

The candidate will spearhead a project with the following goals:

  • to define the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating natural killer and dendritic cell abundance in the tumor microenvironment in human and mouse tumors
  • To develop and undertake broad immune profiling studies of human tumors to interrogate the innate immune response to cancer and its’ role in regulating responses to immunotherapy

Qualifications

A Ph.D. in the life sciences with a focus on immunology or tumor immunology is required. A strong publication record as well as eligibility and desire to apply for future fellowships are required. The candidate must also be experienced in essential techniques to characterize and profile immune cells and to gauge their function.
