Postdoc position bridging Tumor Immunology and Proteomics at Utrecht University

Immuno-oncology is a promising new area within the field of basic, translational and clinical cancer research and recent years have seen breakthroughs where (otherwise untreatable) patients have been cured by novel immunotherapies. Immuno-oncology focusses on understanding the relationship between the tumor and the patients’ own immune system, with the aim to target the cancer or microenvironment with antibodies or immune cells. Central to this approach is the identification of unique antigens presented by the tumor cells and immunological characterization of the tumor microenvironment (TME). Mass spectrometry provides the much-needed hypothesis-free window to discovery specific and novel tumor antigens, and reveal the intricacies of the tumor immunological landscape. In this position, you will participate in the PMC-UMCU-UU tumor immunology initative, and work alongside immunologists and clinicians in joint efforts, within the strong collaborative network of the immune-oncology research community in Utrecht. A background in proteomics and tumor immunology would be appreciated.
