A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP is available immediately to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of HTLV-1 driven adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL). Being the only human cancer caused by a retrovirus, ATLL is a fatal disease with no effective therapy. ATLL is distinguished from other types of T cell lymphomas in its unique genetic and phenotypic characteristics as well as clinical behavior. Evidence is also accumulating that ATLL diagnosed in North America and Japan may differ in their mutation patterns and anti-HTLV-1 host immune response. We use patient samples as well as cell line and PDX models to investigate the roles played by epigenetic dysregulation, altered crosstalk of cell signaling pathways, elevated replication stress in ATLL development and targeted therapies. We have also begun to examine how host immunity is impacted during ATLL development. More information about our work can be found at: https://www.einsteinmed.edu/faculty/7901/b-hilda-ye/
Recent PhD or MD graduates with significant research experience are preferred. Proficiency in molecular biology techniques including the manipulation and analysis of gene expression in cultured and primary cells is required. Some knowledge of immunology would be desirable, so are computational skills. First authored publication(s) in peer-reviewed, English language journals are necessary. Ability to work independently, motivation to make new discoveries and a strong work ethic are important. A curriculum vitae with a description of research experiences and contact information for three references should be sent to [email protected]. Please make the email subject "Postdoctoral Application - Your name."
