At the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We are committed to increasing our awareness and improving our practices so that we are an organization known as a center of diversity and inclusion excellence.  As a part of this effort, we are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in scientific research and supporting the career development of the next generation of scientists. 

 

Overview:

Fred Hutch is seeking applications for the 3rd Annual Dr. Eddie Méndez Scholar Award which recognizes outstanding postdoctoral fellows from any discipline who are conducting cancer, infectious disease, or basic science research.

This award was created to recognize Dr. Méndez’s commitment to cancer research and to supporting early-career underrepresented minority scientists and scientists with disabilities. Individuals who are eligible for this award are current post-doctoral fellows from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science based on the NIH definition, which includes individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders), individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. A selection committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty will select up to six awardees. A honorarium and all expenses related to travel and accommodations will be provided by Fred Hutch.

Awardees will present at a scientific symposium honoring Dr. Eddie Méndez and have the opportunity to meet with Fred Hutch faculty and senior leaders. Our hope is to hold this event in person on the Fred Hutch campus in Seattle sometime between May-October 2021, but given the current uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic we are at this time unable to provide a firm date for the symposium or determine whether the format will be in person or virtual.

Dr. Mendez, who died of cancer in 2018, specialized in treating head-and-neck cancer, an often disfiguring and debilitating disease. It was his mission to save lives and improve the well-being of cancer patients, whether through spearheading minimally invasive robotic surgery for these tumors (he was the first in Washington state to perform such surgery), or through tirelessly developing new treatments in his laboratory at Fred Hutch. 

 

 

Dates and Location:

Arrival: Between May - October 2021 (Additional Information to Follow). *Contingent on public health recommendations. If event is virtual, a modified symposium will be adapted.

Qualifications

  • A Ph.D. in the field of immunology or tumor immunology is required.
  • A strong publication record as well as eligibility and desire to apply for future fellowships are required.
  • The candidate must also be experienced in essential techniques to characterize and profile immune cells and to gauge their function. A candidate with experience in live cell imaging, human immunology, and experience working in murine tumor or metastasis models is strongly desired.

The post-doctoral research fellow will work on independent and collaborative projects in Dr. Chapuis' laboratory developing adoptive T cell immunotherapy within the Program in Immunology and Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. This highly translational research will include monitoring patients through-out the course of immunotherapy treatment, and use the data generated for immunological informed decisions that will affect the course of treat for patients.

 

Additionally, the successful applicant will employ strategies for improving current immunotherapy treatments, including and not limited to; cloning T cell receptors (TCRs) and genetic modification of human T cells with TCRs specific for antigens expressed by malignancies. In vitro studies using human T cells and in vivo murine models will be used to develop and test novel T cell therapies. The research fellow will perform correlative studies to evaluate the transfer, persistence and function of antigen-specific T cells in human clinical trials of adoptive T cell immunotherapy.

 

The Program in Immunology is a leader in the development and clinical application of adoptive immunotherapy using genetically modified T cells and is committed to the advancement of this approach. The post-doctoral research fellow may also participate in the laboratory evaluation of ongoing clinical trials involving engineering of peripheral blood stem cell grafts for improved allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation outcomes, and in the development of future immunotherapy strategies. This is a full-time position with a salary based on the NIH scale and excellent benefits.

Responsibilities

  • Study the function and persistence of T cells in clinical trial patients

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Innate Immunity to HIV-1

FH Clinical Research Division

A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position is available with Dr. Anthony Rongvaux, Ph.D. at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Rongvaux Lab uses state of the art humanized murine models to study innate immune responses specific to the human species. This research project focuses on the fundamental mechanisms of innate immunity to HIV-1 infection.

Responsibilities

Over 35 million people are living with HIV-1 worldwide. About 40% of them don’t have access to antiretroviral therapies, resulting in over half a million deaths annually.

 

Acute HIV-1 infection induces a rapid inflammatory response, characterized by the production of large amounts of cytokines. However, this immune response is ineffective at controlling the virus. As a consequence, the virus can establish chronic infection and, if not treated, progresses to a lethal disease. Understanding why the natural immune response to HIV-1 infection does not confer protection, but rather contributes to pathogenesis, could help us design more effective therapies and vaccine strategies.

 

Using state of the art humanized murine models, single-cell RNA sequencing and genome editing, the postdoctoral fellow will study the mechanisms by which the immune system detects, and responds to infected cells. This work will result in a better understanding of the contribution of the innate immune system, in vivo, to antiviral activity vs. immune dysfunction and pathogenesis.

Qualifications

Applicants will have a recent PhD in Immunology, Virology, Molecular Biology or a closely related field

 

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in HIV-1 research and/or in immunology with robust skills in molecular and cellular biology. Desirable skills include animal studies and bioinformatics analysis.

 

To be successful in this position, the post-doctoral research fellow must be highly motivated with a track record of productive research, exemplified by at least one first author publication(s), and willing to work in a highly collaborative, fast paced, collaborative and dynamic environment. This positions is suited to someone who enjoys mastering new skills, and working in a multidisciplinary team environment.
