Responsibilities

A postdoctoral position is available in the MacPherson Lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The project will focus on small cell lung cancer (SCLC), a neuroendocrine tumor type that exhibits initial sensitivity to chemotherapy but invariable emergence of chemoresistance. Our lab is interested in linking specific gene mutations in SCLC to therapeutic vulnerabilities and to chemoresistance. We have developed a panel of new genetically engineered murine models (e.g. see Jia et al, 2018 Cancer Discovery) and patient derived xenograft models that can be used in these efforts.  Many projects in the lab incorporate genome-wide functional screens in cells and in vivo.  These screens are used to identify functionally important genes for SCLC and genetic vulnerabilities that might lead to new avenues to therapeutically target SCLC.  One available project includes interrogating the importance of candidate SCLC driver genes and linking specific SCLC-mutated genes to novel therapeutic approaches. Hits identified through functional screens are followed by therapeutic studies that employ GEM and PDX model.  A second available project applies in vivo genome-wide screens to understand drivers of chemoresistance.

Qualifications

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD or MD and interests in cancer genetics, epigenetics, murine models, functional screening and/or therapeutics. The candidate should be able to drive an individual project but also be highly collaborative.  A strong foundation in molecular and cell biology is essential. The candidate should be independent, enthusiastic and scientifically rigorous.

The Ha lab is establishing a research program that uses new DNA sequencing technologies to study cancer genomes. The lab is also focused on research involving liquid biopsies, such as cell-free DNA, and developing new computational approaches to leverage these data for genome discovery and cancer burden monitoring. The research interests/projects in the Ha lab include:

  • Analysis of cancer genomes to understand tumor progression/evolution, metastatic disease, non-coding genome alterations, copy number alterations, genome rearrangements and 3D structure, mutational signatures
  • Development of novel computational algorithms for long-range (linked-reads or long-reads) whole genome sequencing of tumors
  • Analysis of linked-read whole genome sequencing data to uncover novel alterations driving metastatic prostate cancer
  • Analysis of cell-free DNA in plasma samples from patients under treatment
  • Development and analysis of sensitive approaches to detect tumor-derived DNA in cell-free DNA from patient blood plasma
  • The lab will work with collaborators to validate results using functional experiments
  • For examples of recent studies, see PMID:29909985, PMID:29109393, PMID:25060187
  • https://gavinhalab.github.io/

 

Candidates with strong interest and/or expertise in any of these research areas are highly encouraged to apply

  • Cancer genomics, liquid biopsies, tumor evolution/heterogeneity
  • Application of statistical modeling, algorithm design, artificial intelligence to study cancer and genetics
  • Analysis of large, complex genome, epigenome, or transcriptome data

Qualifications

Applicants must have a PhD in one of these disciplines: Computational biology, bioinformatics, computer science, data science, statistics, computer/electrical engineering, physics, or other related fields

Applicants should have some of the following skills and experience:

  • Work well in team environments; strong communication/organization skills; detail-oriented
  • Strong programming experience (R, Python, Matlab, Java, C/C++, Perl or other languages for research)
  • Experience with high performance computing environments and cloud computing environments is a plus
  • Experience with analyzing sequencing data is considered a strong asset
  • Applicants must have a demonstrated publication track record.
  • A background in cancer biology (esp in prostate or breast cancer) is considered a strong asset.

To apply, please submit your application with the following:

  • a several paragraph statement of research interests
  • CV
  • names and email addresses of three references

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Cell Biology

FH Basic Sciences Division
Category: Post-Doctoral Research Fellows and Associates
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 12653

Overview

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.

Responsibilities

A postdoctoral position for a recent enthusiastic PhD graduate is available in the Parkhurst Lab at Fred Hutch. The Parkhurst lab uses multidisciplinary approaches to study dynamic cytoskeleton processes in the regulation of normal developmental events and when mis-regulated in diseases/cancer.  We are seeking a highly motivated postdoc candidate interested in one of the following two research areas -- Cell wound repair or Nuclear architecture/organization -- in the Drosophila model system. The postdoc candidate will carry out independent research projects and participate in lab meetings/journal clubs, as well as contribute to the smooth running of the lab.

 

Salary for this opportunity will be in line with the NIH pay scale.

Qualifications

  • Recent PhD degree
  • A strong foundation in molecular and cell biology
  • Background and familiarity with Drosophila genetics desirable
  • Candidates need to be highly motivated and well-organized individuals who think independently, but enjoy working as part of a dynamic and collaborative team
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
