Strength Through Diversity
Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.
- A postdoctoral research position in the laboratory of David Dominguez-Sola, at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York is now available. Mount Sinai is a diverse institution, host of groundbreaking science with the goal of advancing medicine and patient care. The Tisch Cancer Institute, to which the laboratory is affiliated, is an NCI-designated multidisciplinary cancer research center with state-of-the-art facilities and a vibrant scientific community.
The Dominguez-Sola laboratory investigates the pathogenic mechanisms of B cell lymphoma initiation and how they relate to the normal biology of adaptive immune responses. We are a small group that is very dynamic, collaborative and international, and the lab is comprised of researchers with diverse backgrounds and expertise.

We are looking for a creative, talented, collegial and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate how disruption of B cell dynamics in the germinal center contributes to the pathogenesis of B cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Briefly, the project will use high throughput methods to explore how several genetic alterations found in lymphomas impact positive selection and clonal expansion in the germinal center.
This job offers a competitive salary with benefits and is subject to skills and experience. Mount Sinai is an equal opportunity employer. We promote recognition and respect for individual and cultural differences, and we work to make our employees feel valued and appreciated, whatever their race, gender, background, or sexual orientation.
- Successful applicants will hold a PhD (or be in the final stages of completion) in fields related to immunology and/or cancer and have generated original contributions to their field of research. This position requires substantial knowledge on cancer biology and B cell development, with technical experience in animal models for the study of developmental processes and/or human disease. A substantial track record of science communication (recent publications or submitted manuscripts to peer-review journals; as well as communications in scientific meetings) is also essential. Experience with gene editing techniques, flow cytometry and basic computational tools would be especially valued.
As a postdoctoral fellow, you will be expected to lead your own project. You will be in charge of designing and conducting experiments, analyzing and interpreting data, and directly contributing to the conceptual framework of the study. You will be responsible for the presentation of research results at institutional seminars and scientific meetings and by writing manuscripts reporting your discoveries. You are expected to contribute to other projects on a collaborative basis. Finally, you will be involved in general lab duties and may supervise graduate students.
