The Barry laboratory, within the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Translational Research Program, is looking for a talented post-doctoral fellow with extensive expertise in the realm of tumor immunology. The Barry lab focuses on understanding how the immune system responds to cancer and can be manipulated to treat cancer. Our studies utilize human immunology, murine models of cancer, state-of-the-art imaging techniques, RNA sequencing techniques, and immunological techniques to explore the role of the innate immune system in controlling immune responses to cancer. We focus our research on understanding how the innate immune system, specifically dendritic and natural killer cells, shape immune responses to cancer and patient responses to common immunotherapies (see Barry et al., 2018 PMID: 29942093).

Responsibilities

The candidate will spearhead a project with the following goals:

 

  • To define the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating natural killer and dendritic cell abundance in the tumor microenvironment.
  • To develop and undertake broad immune profiling studies of human tumors to interrogate the innate immune response to cancer and its’ role in regulating responses to immunotherapy.

Qualifications

  • A Ph.D. in the field of immunology or tumor immunology is required.
  • A strong publication record as well as eligibility and desire to apply for future fellowships are required.
  • The candidate must also be experienced in essential techniques to characterize and profile immune cells and to gauge their function. A candidate with experience in live cell imaging, human immunology, and experience working in murine tumor or metastasis models is strongly desired.
  • The successful candidate must have excellent communication and organizational skills, the ability to develop creative approaches to experimental design, and thrive both in independent research and while working collaboratively with other fellows, graduate students, and staff in the lab.

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow/Research Associate - Postdoctoral position to develop Bayesian methods for B cell receptor sequence lineages

 

The goal of our project is to develop, implement, and apply Bayesian evolutionary algorithms for the analysis of B cell receptor sequence lineages. These lineages are important for understanding the events leading to the development of high-affinity antibodies.

 

We are motivated to:

  • use a Bayesian approach to appropriately account for uncertainty in phylogenetic inferences (which is considerable in this case)
  • fit and use complex models of somatic hypermutation and selection that violate the commonly-applied IID assumption in phylogenetics
  • develop efficient, elegant, and robust implementations of the newly developed methodology and make them available in open-source software for the community.

Responsibilities

We will work together to develop novel models, implement these models in open-source software, write tests to verify correctness, apply the methods to a variety of data sets, and write papers describing the results.

 

We’ll have the opportunity to work with a broad range of leading researchers, including:

  • biologists Jesse Bloom, Leslie Goo, Julie Overbaugh, Gabriel Victora, and their labs
  • statisticians Vladimir Minin, Noah Simon, Marc Suchard, and their groups.
     

You can find out more about our group by visiting: 

http://matsen.fredhutch.org/
http://github.com/matsengrp

Qualifications

The ideal candidate for this project would have experience with the statistical underpinnings of Bayesian phylogenetic analysis, as well as experience implementing models in code. However, we welcome applications from candidates with less statistical expertise but a deep desire to expand their skills in this area. We hope applicants will want to improve their coding abilities through clean coding practices, code review, and a modern development workflow. The ideal candidate would also be motivated to improve biological understanding through computation, and so would be enthusiastic about working closely with our leading biologist collaborators.

 

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Ph.D. in biology, computer science, math, or another relevant area
  • Solid foundation in Bayesian phylogenetics or other challenging Bayesian estimation problem
  • Computer programming experience
  • Clear ability to perform independent research
     

If you are interested in this position, please submit the following materials:

  • Two representative publications
  • A code sample
  • CV

A laboratory in Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Translational Research Program (Public Health Sciences Division) is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The candidate would join the Laboratory for the Study of Metastatic Microenvironments (LSM2), directed by Cyrus Ghajar.

 

The LSM2 focuses on understanding the biology underlying disseminated tumor cell (DTC) dormancy (see: Carlson et al., Nature Cell Biology 2019; Ghajar, Nature Reviews Cancer 2015; Ghajar et al., Nature Cell Biology 2013) and uncovering means to eradicate dormant DTCs. Our overarching goal is to develop therapeutically viable approaches to prevent breast cancer metastasis.

 

The broad research area we are interested in exploring is: how the DNA damage response of quiescent cells differs from that of proliferative cells, and the therapeutic implications of these differences.

Responsibilities

The more specific areas the successful candidate will be expected to take on and drive in thoughtful and provocative new directions are:
