Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Post-Transcriptional Control in Cancer

FH Human Biology Division
Category: Post-Doctoral Research Fellows and Associates
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 10877

Overview

Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.

 

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Hsieh Lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The core focus of the Hsieh Lab is to interrogate the mechanisms by which post-transcriptional gene regulation governs cancer cell behavior at a molecular, cellular, and organismal level.

Responsibilities

For this position, the applicant will utilize murine genetics, whole transcriptome ribosome profiling, RNA labeling/sequencing techniques, various cellular and molecular assays, and a repository of primary human cancer samples to understand how the shape of mRNA direct their translation and cancer phenotypes. Applicants should be interested in the application of basic science research towards clinically intractable problems faced by cancer patients and will be expected to be scientifically intrepid.

Qualifications

Minimum qualifications:

 

We are looking for exceptional candidates with a recent PhD and/or MD, a record of productive research, and the ability to work independently as well as in collaborative research efforts.

 

Preferred qualifications:

 

A strong background in high throughput methods, RNA biology, and/or computational biology are highly desirable. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required.

To apply for this position, please provide the following:

 

  • Cover letter summarizing your research interest
  • CV
  • Three references

Research Technician I, Cancer Metabolism

FH Human Biology Division
Category: Laboratory Research Sciences
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 17414

The Sullivan Laboratory in the Division of Human Biology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center studies the metabolism of cancer cells. We are interested in understanding how cancers alter their cell metabolism to support biomass synthesis and survive stress and in identifying new metabolic targets to suppress tumor growth. We seek an enthusiastic candidate for a role that balances cutting edge research, data analysis for collaborative projects, and lab management. The ability to work in a team as well as taking individual initiative will be essential. This is an ideal position for a recent college graduate who wants additional laboratory/scientific experience before going to graduate or professional school. Funding for this position is for two years with the potential to extend from there.

Responsibilities

The technician will work under the direction of Dr. Sullivan and other high-level laboratory personnel to perform experiments, and to support the experiments of others.  The candidate’s time will be divided into two parts: ~75% effort conducting cutting edge research in cancer metabolism and ~25% effort for laboratory maintenance and lab management.

Qualifications

Bachelor's degree in a scientific field and some lab research experience outside of coursework required. Must have scientific knowledge in the area of study and basic laboratory skills. Independent research experience in addition to school lab experience is expected, but applicant will be trained in all of the techniques to be used in this position.  Experience in cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, mass spectrometry, and some computational skills are pluses. Most importantly, passion for being involved in scientific discovery is essential!
