Post-Doctoral 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.

Environment

The position will come with a competitive postdoc-level salary with great benefits for two years, with the ability to extend if things are going well. The environment is lively yet casual, with a strong emphasis on collaborative work. The Center is housed in a lovely campus on Lake Union a short walk from downtown, and a slightly longer walk from the University of Washington. The Matsen group is in the newly-remodeled Steam Plant building overlooking the lake. Powerful computing resources and helpful IT staff await. We have had researchers with backgrounds in biology, physics, statistics, math, and computer science.

 

We acknowledge the historical and present barriers for underrepresented groups, and work to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in computational biology. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

 

You can find out more about our group by visiting: 

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.

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:

  • Defining a secretome induced by genotoxic therapy in vascular endothelium, and characterizing the effect of this secretome on associated DTCs.
  • Discovering the molecular origins of this secretome, and the impact of targeting it at its “roots” vs its stem.

The ideal candidate will be interested and able to develop their own research strategy to answer these questions utilizing an array of innovative models and sophisticated approaches that we have developed in the lab, along with those they would contribute to the lab. Formal training in bioinformatics approaches to interrogate transcriptomic and phospho-proteomic data would prove helpful towards this end. The ideal candidate will also be expected to contribute to a creative, collaborative and bustling laboratory environment.

Qualifications

  • A Ph.D. in cell biology or a related field, with extensive wet lab experience is required.
  • A strong publication record and eligibility and desire to apply for future fellowships are also required.
  • Candidates with expertise in organotypic culture models, imaging, bioinformatics, and/or experience working in murine tumor or metastasis models are preferred.'
  • The successful candidate must have excellent communication, organizational, and interpersonal skills, the ability to develop creative approaches to experimental design, and thrive both in independent research and while working collaboratively.

 

Fred Hutch has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirement, with exceptions only for approved medical or religious accommodations.
As a condition of employment, newly hired employees must provide proof of vaccination or initiate the accommodations process before their first day of employment.

Matsen Lab Environment
The environment in the Matsen group is lively yet casual, with a strong emphasis on collaborative work between postdocs, PhD students, interns, and programmers. 

 

The Center is housed in a lovely campus on Lake Union a short walk from downtown, and a slightly longer walk from the University of Washington. The Matsen group is in the newly-remodeled Steam Plant building overlooking the lake. We believe that science is for everyone. We have had researchers with a variety of backgrounds, including Latinx, Black, Asian, and Middle Eastern. We have had women, men, gay, and straight, and we welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have had successful high schoolers, postdocs, people who were the first in their family to attend college, and one who had decided that college wasn’t for them. We have had researchers with backgrounds in biology, physics, statistics, math, and computer science.

 

We acknowledge the historical and present barriers for underrepresented groups, and work to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in computational biology. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

 

Please read our expectations of group members. By applying for this position, we expect that you will fulfill these expectations. We enthusiastically solicit feedback on these expectations or requests for clarification.

Responsibilities

During the next few years we expect SARS-CoV-2 to continue its transformation into an endemic virus, as vaccines mitigate but do not eliminate its circulation. In many ways we expect SARS-CoV-2 to become analogous to flu, where yearly vaccinations are designed to be as effective as possible against the most important circulating strains. However, because of the time required to manufacture and then administer the vaccine, we must decide months ahead of time what the most important strains are to include. 

 

The purpose of this position is to develop algorithms to forecast the dominant viral variants given a diverse collection of densely sampled data. In addition to epidemiological data, we will have experimentally-derived estimates of the phenotype of large pools of spike variants, both in terms of their function and their ability to escape antibody-mediated immune pressure. Using machine-learning techniques we will predict the fitness of additional combinations of mutations alongside experimentally inferred phenotypes, and use these predictions as part of our overall system to predict the long-term trajectory of viral variants. This will be a close collaboration with the Bedford and Bloom labs.

 

We are seeking a postdoc to develop predictive algorithms and help bring them into production on nextstrain.org. This includes:

  • Reading relevant literature to understand the current state of the art.
  • Develop new models integrating diverse data types.
  • Developing benchmarks and working together with staff to evaluate algorithms on those benchmarks.
  • Working with the Bedford lab to put a prediction system into production.
  • Collaborating with trainees and staff from three labs.
  • Contributing to writing papers and software testing.
     

This position will be housed in the Matsen lab; see our website for more information about what we do.

Qualifications

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

  • The successful applicant will have a PhD in statistics, mathematics, computer science, or another relevant discipline, and will have a successful track record of independent research.
  • Creative and thoughtful
  • Solid in their mathematics/statistics background
  • A capable computer programmer
  • Familiar with modern Python-based tooling in machine-learning
  • A careful writer and diligent editor
  • Excited to contribute to an important goal

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

  • A CV summarizing your education and work experience so far.
  • The names and email addresses of two references.
  • Two publications featuring your work.
  • A code sample representing code that you are proud of. This doesn’t have to be long or especially fancy, but should be clean and do something non-trivial. Ideally this would be present as a commit to a code repository such as GitHub, but emailed code is fine as well.

 

Fred Hutch has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirement, with exceptions only for approved medical or religious accommodations.
As a condition of employment, newly hired employees must provide proof of vaccination or initiate the accommodations process before their first day of employment.

Responsibilities

The Matsen group is seeking a Research Intern (Master's level) to join the group. They are interested both in strong computational researchers who would like to work on hard problems from biology, as well as researchers with a biological background at the immune/pathogen interface who are interested in moving into the computational sphere. Bring your research ideas if you have them, but the Matsen group also has many projects ready for work from people newer to the area. The group includes a collection of staff programmers who can be strong collaborators to turn ideas into reality.

Qualifications

Minimum Qualifications

  • PhD in immunology, biochemistry, virology, statistics, mathematics, computer science, computational biology, or a related field
  • Successful track record of independent research

 

Essential Skills

In addition to the core qualifications, we are looking for someone who is:

  • creative and thoughtful
  • able to synthesize between fields
  • if from a biological background: able to write scripts in Python, R, or shell to perform basic data analysis

  • Two publications featuring your work
     

A code sample showing work that you are proud of. The code sample need not be elaborate but should demonstrate what you consider to be clean code. This is an important part of the interview because we value code quality, and we hope you do as well. We realize that you are applying for a postdoc position, not a programmer position, but given that we frequently "speak" in code this is an important part of making sure you'll be happy and productive in the group.

 

For biologists, a script will suffice. For applicants from a computational background, this has to be nontrivial, but doesn't have to be long. Ideally it would be publicly accessible (e.g. on GitHub), but if that's not possible, a zipped attachment is fine too.

 

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