A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position is available with Dr. Anthony Rongvaux, Ph.D. at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Rongvaux Lab uses state of the art humanized murine models to study innate immune responses specific to the human species. This research project focuses on the fundamental mechanisms of innate immunity to HIV-1 infection.

Responsibilities

Over 35 million people are living with HIV-1 worldwide. About 40% of them don’t have access to antiretroviral therapies, resulting in over half a million deaths annually.

 

Acute HIV-1 infection induces a rapid inflammatory response, characterized by the production of large amounts of cytokines. However, this immune response is ineffective at controlling the virus. As a consequence, the virus can establish chronic infection and, if not treated, progresses to a lethal disease. Understanding why the natural immune response to HIV-1 infection does not confer protection, but rather contributes to pathogenesis, could help us design more effective therapies and vaccine strategies.

 

Using state of the art humanized murine models, single-cell RNA sequencing and genome editing, the postdoctoral fellow will study the mechanisms by which the immune system detects, and responds to infected cells. This work will result in a better understanding of the contribution of the innate immune system, in vivo, to antiviral activity vs. immune dysfunction and pathogenesis.

Qualifications

Applicants will have a recent PhD in Immunology, Virology, Molecular Biology or a closely related field

 

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in HIV-1 research and/or in immunology with robust skills in molecular and cellular biology. Desirable skills include animal studies and bioinformatics analysis.

 

To be successful in this position, the post-doctoral research fellow must be highly motivated with a track record of productive research, exemplified by at least one first author publication(s), and willing to work in a highly collaborative, fast paced, collaborative and dynamic environment. This positions is suited to someone who enjoys mastering new skills, and working in a multidisciplinary team environment.

The Geraghty Lab seeks an exceptionally skilled, experienced molecular biologist to join their team. A summary of Dr. Geraghty's research can be found here.

Responsibilities

The Staff Scientist will work in a research laboratory that performs state of the art genotyping for disease association studies.  The laboratory collaborates with local and international labs to carry out anthropological, clinical, and basic disease studies that are aimed at a better understanding and development of data and tools for diagnosis and treatment of a variety of human diseases. 

 

A core goal is to facilitate the use of immune genetic data both as a predictive tool in anticipating clinical outcomes (diagnosis) and as knowledge and information relevant to the biological processes causal of those outcomes (therapeutics.) Precisely such application has long been active in support of hematopoietic cell transplants (HCTs) and plans are to expand and extend use to infectious disease, autoimmunity, and cancer.  This work includes two fronts in expanding the genetic testing capacities of our genotyping systems and developing new analytic capabilities for data application. Novel typing systems focusing on heretofore untested immune response variation are being developed by building on the core systems supporting HLA. For novel analytics, study cohorts have been assembled to apply machine learning/artificial intelligence tools to identify patterns of immune genetic variation predictive of clinical outcomes in HCTs (for replication with and extension with new methods and added data) and for COVID-19 as a model of infectious disease.

Qualifications

A PhD in a biological science or related with an understanding of the fundamentals of molecular genetics is required. Familiarity with the genetics of the immune response would be a significant advantage – in particular with the HLA system. To be successful in this position, one must have the ability to communicate effectively with coworkers, working together in executing tasks that engage multiple complementary activities in parallel. In addition to benchwork, these activities include data analysis and effective interaction with the laboratory’s software and data analysis group. The ability and willingness to take initiative in problem solving and suggestions for workflow improvements will be a key to advancement and associated benefits.
