Postdoctoral Position at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is delighted to offer postdoc fellowship in biology. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applicants should apply before January 12, 2016.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, 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, the Center's five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Hutchinson Center, 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. Join us and make a difference. The candidate will spearhead a project with the following goals:
- to understand how the perivascular niche steers immune cell phenotype, and.
- to determine whether an immunotherapy-based strategy to target dormant DTCs is feasible. The ideal candidate will be interested and able to develop his/her own research strategy to understand DTC-immune cell interactions by utilizing an array of innovative models and sophisticated techniques we have developed or adopted in the lab. These include three-dimensional cell culture models, murine metastasis models and intravital imaging approaches.
Application Requirements
- A Ph.D. in the field of immunology, tumor immunology, or closely related field (with strong expertise in tumor immunology) is required. A strong publication record and eligibility and desire for future fellowships are also required. The candidate must also be experienced in essential techniques to characterize and profile immune cells and to gauge their function.
- A candidate with experience in live cell imaging, developing quantitative image analysis approaches, and experience working in murine tumor or metastasis models is strongly desired.
- The successful candidate must have excellent communication and organizational skills, the ability to develop creative approaches to experimental design, and thrive both in independent research and while working collaboratively with other fellows and graduate students in the lab
