Cures Start Here. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. Recognized internationally for its pioneering work in bone-marrow transplantation, Fred Hutch’s five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Fred Hutch, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest. Careers Start Here.
A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Stanley Lee at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Lee lab has a longstanding interest in understanding how defects in RNA processing and chromatin regulation drive hematologic malignancies, and how to devise mechanism-based strategies to therapeutically target these pathways in cancer (PMIDs: 30107174, 27135740, 27603132, 31334570.) Fred Hutch also offers a great research environment including state-of-the-art Shared Resources and Core Facilities and a robust Postdoctoral Fellowship Program to provide advanced training for future scientific leaders.
The successful candidate will be responsible for project design, execution, management and data analysis relating to RNA processing/chromatin regulation in stem cell biology and blood cancers. Projects will use a variety of experimental and computational approaches including in vitro and in vivo models (genetically engineered murine models (GEMMs) and patient derived xenografts (PDXs)), transcriptomic, epigenomic and proteomic analyses, molecular assays and functional genomics approaches. The fellow will work directly with the PI, members of the laboratory and external collaborators. The fellow will be expected to acquire a thorough understanding of the scientific literature, present in internal and external meetings, and draft manuscripts for peer-reviewed publications.
