You are invited to apply for a position at the Shou Lab in the Basic Sciences Division at Fred Hutch. We are interested in using experimental biology to quantitatively examine “cooperation,” because cooperation can be found virtually everywhere: between different cell types (e.g. our body), different individuals (e.g. ant colonies), or different species (e.g. flower-pollinator symbiosis). How can cooperation survive the invasion of cheaters that take but not give? How does cooperation evolve? We plan to study cooperation initially using an engineered system in which two complementary types of yeast cells can only survive when both types are present.

Responsibilities

The incumbent will perform a project related to evolution.  The incumbent will also be responsible for making common reagents for the lab and participating in daily activities and duties of the lab.  Finally, the incumbent will aid in the completion of other ongoing projects in the lab as needed.  The incumbent will have opportunities to present substantial research results at conferences and gain authorship in research articles.

 

The lab will start its move to University College London at the end of 2020 or early 2021. The incumbent will need to help with the move to London and work for one or more years in London.

 

This position is ideal for some one who wants to gain more research experience before going to graduate school and wants to explore the exciting cities of Seattle and London.

Qualifications

A bachelor's degree is required and at least one year of laboratory experience. Strong quantitative skills including basic (high school) mathematics knowledge are required as is the ability to learn new things and to be highly organized. Comfort with computer programming and the ability to quantitatively analyze datasets independently is a big plus.

 

Applicants must submit a cover letter (stating why you are interested in the position and your educational/career goals), resume, at least one reference letter from your primary research adviser and the contact information for two other professional references.

The Brent lab is seeking a Research Technician IV. In this position, you will contribute to understanding how cell signaling systems carry information and the causes and consequences of non-genetic phenotypic variation in signal and response. Specifically, you will lead work on design and construction of "controllers", complex artificial systems allowing chemically tunable variation-suppressed expression of genes in mammalian cells induced by different small molecules.

 

You will also be involved in/ help alpha test our efforts to develop Augmented Reality (AR) methods to aid biological research. That work applies original engineering approaches and custom-built hardware/ software devices to increase the performance and add new capabilities to contemporary AR devices. Our approach has combined "analytical" approaches to computer vision and object sensing, as well as complementary application of trained deep neural networks (NNs) to provide the same functions and guidance. The work benefits from 25+ years of experience by PI and Current Protocols founders in providing procedural guidance.

 

Like the controller project, the explicit aim of this AR work is to assist experimentation. If these projects are successful, your work will have contributed to accelerating the pace of scientific discovery, and democratizing access to biomedical methods worldwide.

Responsibilities

For this position, we are hoping to find an extraordinary and dedicated individual. The lab is a multidisciplinary environment and offers a number of intellectual growth paths by which scientists willing to engage can continue to develop scientifically. This position will support research activities that include but are not limited to:

  • Generation of variation-suppressed expression constructs to control genes in mammalian cells
  • Generation and testing of large numbers of intermediate constructs carrying out subfunctions, en route to assembly and testing of the best expression controllers
  • Facility with contemporary DNA assembly methods including in vitro assembly and relevant construction methodologies in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
  • Use of software to plan DNA constructions and ability to quickly use lab and other image cytometric software to quantify gene expression in single mammalian cells
  • Use of flow cytometry and flow cytometric methods
  • Updating of standard molecular cell biology/genetic techniques, including retroviral and lentiviral gene transduction, CRISPR, and next generation sequencing analysis, as methods change, based on input from other scientists and literature
  • Engagement with rapidly developing AR and ancillary technologies to aid research projects, willingness to participate in developmental work that will enable others to benefit from this new medium, and possible help with translation to AR representations
  • Aid conventional training, supervision, and evaluation of laboratory staff and students
  • Development and updating of laboratory procedures, draft of reports and manuscripts, and presentation of data at lab meetings and scientific conferences
  • Collaboration with PI for the submission of research grants and the submission of progress reports to identify funding and manage projects and research studies

Qualifications

Required:

  • A bachelor's degree or higher in Biochemistry, Genetics, Cell Biology or related areas
  • At least four years of experience in a related area, or equivalent combination of education/experience, and a strong background in molecular biology, DNA work, mammalian cell culture, and demonstrated facility with contemporary DNA assembly methods


Preferred:

  • Previous experience with rigorous genetics in a prokaryotic system, or in the model systems S. cerevisiae, C. elegans, or D. melanogaster
  • At least 8 years of relevant research experience with some combination of genetics, molecular biology, single cell assays, DNA/genomic based analytical methods, and cell culture
