Job Title:

Mechanism-based Therapeutic Strategies in Adult T-Cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL)

Job Description:

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in Dr. B. Hilda Ye's laboratory, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, to investigate mechanism-based therapeutic strategies in adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL).  ATLL is an extremely aggressive disease of malignant CD4+ T cells and is a major health problem affecting the immigrant population in the Bronx.  In collaboration with clinicians at the Montefiore Medical Center, the Ye laboratory previously showed that compared to ATLL diagnosed in Japan, North American ATLL has unique driver oncogenes as well as transcriptomic and immunologic features.  Unique resources, including patient-derived cell lines and PDX models, have been developed to decipher the function of several molecular pathways targeted by recurrent somatic mutations in the ATLL patients.  Related publications are linked to the laboratory homepage at:

Motivated and experienced postdoc researchers are welcome to apply.  You should have a PhD in immunology, molecular biology, cancer biology, biomedicine or a closely related area.  You should have broad knowledge of cancer biology and/or molecular immunology with high level skills in cell culture, molecular assays, Western blotting, flow cytometry and microscopy.  Experience with in vivo animal models would be beneficial.  Ability to work independently and communicate effectively, creativity, high motivation and a strong work ethic are important.  Curriculum vitae, with a description of research experience and contact information for three references, should be sent to  Subject:  ATLL PD application.

The Department of Cell Biology has a strong core of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, working in diverse areas of cancer biology, cell biology, development, and gene expression regulation.  The Department is highly interactive with a longstanding tradition to support career development of trainees.  There are a variety of scientific and social interaction venues including weekly work-in-progress seminars, biweekly journal clubs, and numerous outside speaker seminars.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation's premier institutions for basic research and clinical investigation with 300+ research laboratories funded by more than $200 million from the National Institutes of Health.  It is also one of America's Best Mid-sized Employers rated by Forbes in 2019.  There are 264 PhD students, including 106 in the combined MD/PhD programs, and ~275 postdoctoral fellows at Einstein.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.  Einstein seeks candidates whose skills and personal and professional experience have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.
