The Saha Laboratory for liver cancer research is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows and graduate students interested in using basic and translational research approaches to explore pathogenic mechanisms and novel targeted therapies in cancers of the liver and intrahepatic bile ducts (cholangiocarcinoma). Students and Fellows will learn to generate and exploit a series of fundamental cancer model systems including genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs), patient-derived xenografts and novel human cancer cell lines with the ultimate goal of translating their findings into novel clinical trials for cholangiocarcinoma patients.
Scientific methodologies and areas of focus include, but are not limited to, animal models and murine genetics, molecular biology, cell biology and metabolism, proteomics, biochemistry, pharmacology, genomics and computational biology.
Positions are available within the Saha Laboratory at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows (PhD and/or MD) with a demonstrated track record of productive research. Applicants with specific expertise in mouse models, liver development, immunology or computational biology are highly encouraged to apply. Proficiency in written and verbal English is required. Fellowship opportunities are available through the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation as well as other philanthropic and government organizations, and recruits who join the lab will be supported in their applications.
Please apply on our careers site with your CV, a description of past research experiences and future goals (not more than 1-2 pages) and contact information.
We are accepting rotation students currently enrolled in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program, and the Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease (M3D) Program, at the University of Washington.
