Career Opportunities


We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic scientists of all levels with an interest in studying fundamental questions of apoptotic cell clearance in any setting or disease context.

We are actively looking to fill the following positions:

Research Technician

Positions are available for applicants who have a degree in biology or related fields, and at least one year of lab experience in cell and molecular biology. A minimum of a 2-year commitment is required. Email Dr. Perry for more information.

Graduate Students

Our lab welcomes interested graduate students from any of the eligible graduate programs (the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the Weill Cornell Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis program, and the Tri-Institutional graduate programs) to join for rotations. Graduate students interested in doing a rotation should contact Dr. Perry by email to set up a meeting.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral Research Positions in the Immunology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, are available immediately to study the mechanisms used by phagocytes to maintain self-homeostasis during apoptotic cell clearance, and investigate how these processes contribute to organismal homeostasis and cancer development/progression.

Qualified applicants should have expertise in immunology, cellular biology, biochemistry, and/or molecular biology, and one or more of the following areas: flow cytometry, confocal or super-resolution microscopy, metabolism/metabolomics, genome engineering (e.g., CRISPR/Cas9), molecular biology/cloning, protein biochemistry/signal transduction, computational biology/NGS data analysis, autoimmunity/chronic inflammatory disease, cancer biology, or genetically engineered mouse models. Candidates with experience in model organisms are especially encouraged to apply. The candidate should possess strong spoken and written English language skills.

The Sloan Kettering Institute offers postdocs subsidized housing and a competitive salary. If interested, please provide the following via email:

  • Cover letter indicating current and future research interests
  • Curriculum Vitae including publications
  • Names and contact information of three references

Clinical Fellows

Clinical fellows are welcome to join our lab. Preference is given to Memorial Hospital Fellows and Fellows with prior research experience.
