Immunology of Neuroendocrine Tumors

National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Nitin Roper, Developmental Therapeutics Branch, Center for Cancer Research, NCI. The laboratory is focusing on studying how Notch signaling can alter intrinsic tumor immunity in small cell lung cancer (Roper et al. Nature Communications 2021). The current position will seek to decipher the role of Notch signaling in intrinsic tumor immunity in a broad range of neuroendocrine tumors using novel patient-derived organoids. The position will also work on translational studies from upcoming clinical trials of Notch targeting antibody-drug conjugates among patients with neuroendocrine tumors here at the NIH. The post-doctoral candidate will work closely and collaborate with members within the laboratory of Dr. Yves Pommier, an internationally recognized scientist and Chief of the Developmental Therapeutics Branch. 


Interested candidates with Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degrees are encouraged to apply.
