There are projects focused on chromosome segregation and cell division available for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Graduate Students

If you are a student in the MCB program or M3D program and interested in rotating in the lab, please email Sue Biggins directly to inquire about a lab rotation.

Postdoctoral Fellows

We have projects available in many different areas: from genetics and genome-wide sequencing projects to biochemical, cell biological and single molecule biophysical projects. We are using budding yeast and human cells as model systems and are open to new project ideas. We are looking for motivated individuals who are interested in developing independent projects. If you are interested in a potential postdoctoral position, please email your CV with the names and emails of three references to Sue Biggins. Please include your past research accomplishments and areas that interest you for your postdoctoral work.

About working at the Biggins Lab and Fred Hutch

We seek to ensure a diverse and supportive lab environment where the opinions and perspectives of all lab members are respected and valued. We believe an inclusive and safe environment promotes scientific creativity and progress and we strive to maintain this culture. In addition to promoting diversity on our campus, Fred Hutch has a number of resources for, and encourages, professional development and training. There is also a Student/Postdoc Advisory Committee (SPAC) that represents the interests of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and medical fellows at Fred Hutch in obtaining the best education possible for their future careers.
