The Hahn laboratory in the Division of Basic Sciences has an immediate opening for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow to investigate mechanisms of transcriptional regulation. The lab uses multidisciplinary approaches to investigate fundamental mechanisms of gene regulation. Examples of potential research topics that build upon our recent published studies include investigating mechanisms and specificity of transcription activators, repressors, and chromatin regulators; probing the roles and cooperativity of transcription factors in orchestrating genome-wide expression; studies on the mechanisms of specificity and function used by transcription enhancers. A wide variety of approaches are used in the laboratory including molecular genetics, genomics, biochemistry, high throughput screening and computational biology. The precise topic of the research project will be determined jointly with the candidate. Candidates that have a demonstrated interest in gene regulation and that display initiative and creativity will be given priority. The successful candidate will have the ability to work both independently and in a highly collaborative and interactive environment.
Mentoring of postdoctoral fellows is a high priority. In addition, Fred Hutch offers multiple opportunities for career counseling, networking, and teaching/mentoring. The Hahn lab is committed to fostering an inclusive culture of diversity, within a highly creative environment, and applications from people of all backgrounds is encouraged.
