Fred Hutch Dr. Eddie Mendez Post-Doctoral Research Symposium

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Category: Internships
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 69916

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 2nd Annual Dr. Eddie Mendez Scholar Award which recognizes outstanding postdoctoral fellows from any discipline who are conducting research related to cancer, HIV, or other infectious diseases. The award was created to recognize Dr. Méndez’s commitment to cancer research and to supporting early-career underrepresented minority scientists and scientists with disabilities.

Awardees will arrive on May 21, 2020 and will participate in activities on campus while exploring Seattle. They will then present at a scientific symposium on May 22,2020  honoring Dr. Eddie Mendez and will have the opportunity to visit Fred Hutch and meet with faculty members.

This award recognizes the achievements of 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. All expenses related to travel and accommodations will be provided by Fred Hutch.

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: Thursday, May 21, 2020

Symposium: Friday, May 22, 2020

Where: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA

The Gujral lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has an opening for an unpaid internship that would be perfect for a senior student in biological sciences. This position will work with members of the laboratory of Dr. Taran Gujral in the Division of Human Biology to embark on an exciting journey to tackle two of the most burning issues in cancer treatment, metastasis and drug resistance, through an approach which combines cutting edge high-throughput methods and focused biology studies in cell lines and various mouse models. Students will gain hands-on experience in using state-of-the art technologies in proteomics and genomics. 

Responsibilities

The position will begin with the student completing general lab tasks to ensure an adequate time commitment is feasible and a copacetic atmosphere is maintained. If everything works out, there will be a training period (varies dependent on individual) before moving on to your own project. Projects could vary from tumor micro-environment to immuno-oncology to tumor metabolism and drug resistance.  A student could participate in many of the aspects of the work in the lab and would be expected to learn how to develop a research question, design experiments to answer the question, perform experiments, interpret the results and design additional experiments based on the results. Depending on their specific interests, the student could learn about different cancer models including PDX, orthotopic, chemical-induced and xenograft, and many other current methodologies such as reverse phase lysate microarrays, high throughput live cell microscopy-based assays, immunofluorescence microscopy, western blot analysis, RNAseq, quantitative PCR and use of various data analysis software.  In addition, students will also have the opportunity to present their research during lab meetings and scientific conferences and to write, submit, and publish scientific papers. The intern will report directly to Dr. Gujral but is expected to integrate and function as team member at Gujral lab and Human Biology.

Qualifications

  • Prior lab experience in biological sciences is preferred.
  • Currently enrolled in an undergraduate program (Undergrad credit for research is a possibility).
  • Completed 1 year of undergraduate level science courses.
