A highly motivated post-doctoral research fellow is sought to carry out a research project in the lab of Dr. A. McGarry Houghton at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA.

 

About the Lab

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, accounting for ~160,000 lives each year in the US alone.  The Houghton Lab’s current research program focus is to comprehensively study the host immune response to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).  The lab also studies the role of myeloid lineage cells within the lung tumor microenvironment.  Studies in this area are centered upon the mechanisms by which neutrophil lineage cells antagonize lymphocyte functions within the tumor microenvironment.

Responsibilities

The Post-Doctoral Fellow will contribute to the Lab’s research agenda with a focus on the identification of tumor microenvironmental factors that dictate success or failure to immune checkpoint blockade. This project will involve single cell sequencing experiments and subsequent data analysis. The project will also involve the use of novel mouse models of lung cancer that rely on cigarette smoke exposure in mice to generate lung adenocarcinomas with a high mutational spectral burden. The fellow will conduct independent and collaborative research resulting in presentations and publications.

 

The techniques involved will include working with mouse models of lung cancer (Kras/p53, Pten/Lkb1, LLC syngeneic models, etc.) both with and without cigarette smoke exposure and carefully studying the immune response to the tumor using flow cytometry, multiplexed-immunohistochemistry, gene expression analyses (qPCR), protein assessment (ELISA) and others. Experience with single cell sequencing, RNAseq, and whole exome sequencing is preferred. Manipulation of these model systems with immune-based and other oncology drugs are commonplace in the lab. These in vivo studies will be supplemented by in vitro studies involving multicellular culture system, assays of cellular chemotaxis, function and viability and other standard protocols. The ability to analyze the complex datasets resulting from the above experimentation is essential.

 

Qualifications

To be considered, candidates must have:

  • A recent PhD, MD/PhD, or MD in a relevant biological field
  • Candidate is expected to have project leadership experience in a team environment, and must be able to work independently with little supervision.
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills are essential. 

Fred Hutch has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirement, with exceptions only for approved medical or religious accommodations.

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 JL Nelson Research Group investigates naturally acquired microchimerism in cancer, autoimmune disease, infectious disease, and in normal biology. Microchimerism refers to harboring a small number of genetically disparate cells (or DNA) that originated in another individual. Microchimerism most often results from long-term persistence of cells originating from bi-directional mother-child exchange during pregnancy.  Both of the NIH funded research projects are high impact. The Specific Aims for one grant addresses a novel mechanism of tolerance that derives from pregnancy and is applicable to transplantation tolerance.  The Aims of the other grant investigate the presence, cell types, and significance of genetically disparate cells in the human brain.

The research in the Bernstein lab has primarily focused on developmental aspects of normal and leukemic hematopoiesis with the specific goal of developing novel therapeutic modalities. In these efforts we have identified maturation linked cell surface antigens and have utilized this information for developing methods for targeted therapy of hematologic malignancies and for isolating and characterizing normal and malignant human hematopoietic stem cells. Current studies of normal hematopoiesis are aimed at determining the role of the Notch pathway to direct primitive hematopoietic precursors to commit to a particular maturational pathway or to self-renew. These efforts are currently being extended in studies of CAR T-cell self-renewal and differentiation. Recent studies of leukemia focus on how cells in the marrow microenvironment protect the leukemic stem cells from therapy.

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.
