Fred Hutch Dr. Eddie Mendez Post-Doctoral Research Symposium

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Category: Internships
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 80898

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.

Where: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA 

Application Deadline: March 1st, 2021

Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.

 

At 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 seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization.  We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.   

Responsibilities

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the MacPherson lab, which is focused on the biology of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). We apply functional screens and analyses of genetically engineered mouse (GEM) and patient derived xenograft (PDX) models towards understanding genes mutated in SCLC and basis of response towards conventional and novel therapies. Our lab works closely with thoracic oncologist collaborators at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to access patient samples and to help translate basic findings (e.g. see Augert et al, 2019, Science Signaling “Targeting NOTCH Activation in Small Cell Lung Cancer Through LSD1 Inhibition”). Some of these directions are supported by an NIH Lung Cancer SPORE award that promotes translational lung cancer research.  We are also interested in understanding basic mechanisms underlying SCLC tumor suppressor and oncogene function (e.g., see Augert et al, Cancer Cell 2020, “MAX Functions as a Tumor Suppressor and Rewires Metabolism in Small Cell Lung Cancer” and Jia et al, 2018, Cancer Discovery “Crebbp Loss Drives Small Cell Lung Cancer and Increases Sensitivity to HDAC Inhibition”.) We are increasingly performing functional screens in vivo and in tissue culture cells applied to cells to understand genes important for SCLC and to identify new druggable vulnerabilities.  The specific project will be developed by both the candidate and Dr. MacPherson based on areas of shared interests.

Qualifications

  • Recent PhD in Biology or related fields
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Must be able to design and execute experiments, interpret data and present results
  • A record of publication in peer reviewed journals

Please include a cover letter detailing your research interest and suitability for this position and names and contact information of at least two references with your application.

A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow opportunity is immediately available within the Gottardo Lab. The Gottardo Lab is a Research Lab within the Computational Biology department at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. We develop statistical methods and computational tools for managing and analyzing high-throughput biological data including single-cell RNA-seq, flow-cytometry, CyTOF and CITE-seq, to name a few. We then utilize these tools, in collaboration with immunologists and clinicians, to analyze high-dimensional data from pre-clinical and clinical trials in an effort to accelerate the development of new cancer immunotherapies and vaccines. Our lab participates in large collaborative efforts funded by the NIH, Gates Foundation and the CZI including the Human Immunology Project Consortium, the Human Cell Atlas, the Cancer Immunotherapy Trial Network and the Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery.

 

As a lab, we value inclusion and a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives to inform our work. We believe in supporting each other through mentorship and providing resources for professional development. Given these values, we strive to make our recruitment and promotion processes fair and transparent. Therefore, we strongly encourage all individuals with an interest in the position to apply.

Responsibilities

The Post-Doctoral Research Fellow will:

  • Develop statistical and computational methods for analyzing and integrating high dimensional single-cell data generated by cutting-edge technologies including single-cell RNA-seq, CITE-seq, flow cytometry and CyTOF
  • Work with immunologists and clinicians to apply these tools in the context of cancer immunotherapy and vaccine development

Qualifications

Required:

  • Recent PhD degree in statistics/biostatistics, computer science, or other fields with strong quantitative training or experience
  • Strong programming skills in C/C++, R or similar languages
  • Ability to communicate effectively and work in a team-based setting


Preferred:

  • Background in Biology
  • Previous experience with genomics or immunological data analyses
  • Experience with good software development practices (e.g. design, unit tests, documentation, code review) for reproducible science
