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.

The goal of this postdoc research project is to use functional genomic approaches to discover and characterize novel mechanisms of mRNA translation in human cells. Our longer-term goal is to identify how these mechanisms are dysregulated across different tissue types and disease states. Thanks to methods such as ribosome profiling and RNA-seq, we have unprecedented genome-wide snapshots of gene expression at single nucleotide resolution. However, our ability to interrogate and predict the functional effects of mRNA sequence motifs on gene expression and cell physiology has been limited. We aim to address this gap using:

  • Pooled deep sequencing methods to measure in parallel the effects of thousands of mRNA sequence motifs on gene expression in human cells.
  • Unbiased CRISPR screens to identify factors that act at specific motifs.
  • Machine learning and kinetic models to quantitatively predict the effect of novel mRNA motifs on gene expression.
  • Biochemical and genetic studies to test the resulting models of gene regulation.

Responsibilities

The postdoctoral fellow will learn and apply cutting-edge deep sequencing approaches to identify novel sequence motifs and protein factors regulating mRNA translation in human cells. They will use targeted biochemical and genetic approaches to characterize the identified motifs and factors. They will learn and use computational methods to analyze large-scale sequencing data and formulate quantitative models.

 

The fellow will have the opportunity to explore and bring novel approaches and ideas to their project by collaborating with other labs at Fred Hutch, including:

  • Melody Campbell (Structural Biology using cryo-EM)
  • Andrew Hsieh (Cancer Biology)
  • Adam Geballe (Virology)

The fellow will present their work at group meetings and conferences, and write up their work for publication.

Qualifications

  • A PhD is required, preferrably in biochemistry, molecular biology or related field 
  • The ideal candidate for this project will have PhD-level expertise in applying biochemical and structural approaches to study RNAs and proteins or in mammalian RNA biology.
  • Candidates with strong expertise in cell biological approaches or cutting edge microscopy are also welcome to apply.
  • The candidate will be highly motivated to learn deep sequencing methods and computational approaches for studying gene regulation.
