  • Postdoctoral Fellow

    Peter Mac and Children's Cancer Institute are now seeking an ambitious and talented senior postdoctoral fellow to lead a small team of researchers exploring novel immunotherapy approaches in paediatric cancer. The project will be laboratory-based but have a strong translational element, particularly pertaining to common ‘poor outcome’ cancers such as acute myeloid leukaemia, brain cancers and neuroblastoma.

    The research will principally take place at Peter Mac in Melbourne, but will be integrally linked with the Children's Cancer Institute in Sydney (particularly as the program grows), and will require some travel between the two cities.
