A postdoctoral position is available in the Cisse laboratory in the department of neurological surgery, the Brain and Mind Research institute and the Children Brain Tumor Project (CBTP) at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York city.
Our research interest is on the transcriptional control of cell fate in the immune system (e.g. Cissé et al., Cell 2008) and current projects will focus on the transcriptional regulation of brain tumor-associated immune cell functions using mouse models and human brain tumor samples.
We are looking for highly qualified and motivated candidates with strong backgrounds in immunology, developmental biology, molecular biology and/or genetics for a 2-3 year post-doctoral position. Experience with computational biology and bioinformatic tools would be advantageous for the position.
Please submit your CV and a cover letter outlining your research interests, career goals and the names of three referees with contact information to Babacar Cisse at the following address: CisseLab@med.cornell.edu
