The Mechanoadaptation and Caveolae Biology Lab at CNIC, led by Prof. Miguel Angel del Pozo is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to lead an emerging research line on mechanisms regulating tumor immunity through stromal remodelling. The selected candidate will combine state-of-the-art immunobiology and exosome biology, advanced omics and biophysics with advanced mouse models of disease, in collaboration with top laboratories in the field (Dr. David Sancho, CNIC-Madrid, and Prof. Ignacio Melero CIMA-Navarra), to explore the cellular and molecular links between tumor stromal architecture and tumor immunomodulation. The project has recently been awarded an AECC grant (“Caveolin-1-dependent stromal remodeling: a potential novel target for cancer immunotherapy”).

We welcome highly motivated candidates to apply to the upcoming 2022 Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral programmes. Eligible candidates should possess a strong academic record, with first authorship of at least one Q1 publication. Previous experience preferentially in immunology, but also in extracellular matrix biology, tumor immunity, proteomics, and/or research with animal models, will be very positively valued. A PDF enclosing a letter of motivation, CV and contact details of 3 references should be addressed to the team´s Scientific Manager ( Informal inquiries for further information can be requested at +34 914531200, ext. 1161.
