Responsibilities

The Shen Lab, a newly-established behavioral science research group led by Dr. Megan Shen, is seeking to recruit a Post-Doctoral Fellow or trainee who is interested in pursuing research in the space of behavioral medicine and serious and advanced illness. The research group is located at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, WA.

 

The main goal of the research group is to understand and improve advanced cancer patients’ end-of-life care. Dr. Shen’s NIH-funded program of research integrates theories and methods from social, cognitive, and health psychology to examine how racial, religious, and social constructs influence health communication, health decision-making, and understanding of medical information in the context of advanced or serious illness. Many of the ongoing studies examine how these various social and cognitive constructs influence communication between patients, providers, and loved ones and how this communication ultimately influences patients’ healthcare and quality of life outcomes. We are particularly interested in how to achieve health equity in this space, where BIPOC and other underrepresented groups often suffer worse outcomes. In this vein, many of the interventions being developed are designed to be more culturally relevant to varying groups.

 

Studies range from large, observational national cohort studies to behavioral intervention development and testing. Methodological and analytical approaches include surveys, semi-structured qualitative interviews, process measures, and medical chart data abstraction.

 

Some of the scientific questions being addressed include:

  • How can we reduce health disparities in engagement in advance care planning and quality of end-of-life care received among underserved populations (including: Latinx, rural, geriatric, Indigenous, urban African American, East Asian)?
  • How can we improve engagement in advance care planning, including having conversations with loved ones and providers as well as making formal advance care plans?
  • What are the needs and barriers among long-term survivors of transplant in planning for their care needs?
  • What kind of digital tools can we create to help patients and their families better prepare for and plan for end of life?

A successful candidate will have a background in psychology, social work, or another social science or related field. They will ideally have prior experience working in patient populations, which could include cancer or other disease types. They should be passionate about their work and devoted to improving care for those with serious or advanced illness. A background or interest in health equity is desirable but not required.

 

The candidate will be a member of the Shen Research Group at the Fred Hutch and interact closely with other research groups in the Clinical Research Division, where the position is housed, and the Public Health Sciences Division, where Dr. Shen has an affiliate appointment. The postdoc will both work on projects ongoing in the lab as well as be able to pursue their own research. There will be ample opportunities for data presentation, informal discussions, publications, and grant applications. The candidate will be encouraged to develop research ideas and branch out into more independent projects. Mentorship and support for the post-doctoral fellow will be provided.

Qualifications

Minimum Qualifications

  • PhD degree in psychology, social work, or other closely related social science field
  • A demonstrated track record of first author peer-reviewed journal publications
  • Strong English written and communication skills (for manuscripts and conference presentations)
  • Background and training in qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies and analytical skills
  • Ability to read and critically evaluate scientific literature related to team projects
  • Ability to think independently about new results, connect them to domain knowledge, and formulate novel and testable hypotheses to gain research and clinical insights
  • Ability to work as part of an interdisciplinary team
  • Ability to function independently
  • Proficiency in MS Office programs (Word, PowerPoint, Excel)
  • Proficiency in data analytic software (SPSS, SAS, NVivo, and/or R)

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.  Recent studies of leukemia focus on how expression of the non-canonical Notch ligand, DLK1,  leads to advanced disease in Myleodysplasia and other cancers with the goal of developing a therapeutic approach.
