Postdoctoral Research Fellow
A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the Program in Immunology, Clinical Research Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA. The successful applicant will join the lab of Dr. Jarrod Dudakov to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying immune regeneration.
Using common cellular and molecular biology techniques, the postdoctoral fellow will reveal novel pathways of regeneration in the thymus, the primary site of T cell development. Using this understanding, the successful applicant will then develop therapeutic strategies to enhance immune function that can be used in patients who have a depleted immune system due to aging, infection or common cancer therapies.
Desired skills and experience:
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual with a track record of productive research, exemplified by first author publication(s) and presentations, and willing to work in a highly collaborative environment.
Please apply with a letter summarizing previous work experience, personal strengths and future interests, CV, and contact information for three professional references. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Experienced Laboratory Technician
The Program of Immunology within the Clinical Research Division is seeking an experienced technician to work on pre-clinical studies to understand the natural repair mechanisms in the thymus in order to develop novel strategies to boost immune function. The successful candidate will be closely involved with setting up a new laboratory and in setting up
The successful candidate will:
A bachelor’s degree in a biological field and two years or more of post-bachelor’s laboratory research experience are required in the skill sets described above.
Must have experience with molecular biology techniques such as molecular cloning, DNA/RNA/protein isolation and analysis, rtPCR and qPCR. Additional expertise in immunology techniques such as flow cytometry is preferred but not required.
