A postdoc position is currently available!
We are looking for an excellent scientist to join our team who recently completed their PhD and is highly motivated to develop an independent project in the area of nuclear envelope biology. Experience with light microscopy and molecular biology techniques is strongly preferred, and quantitative image analysis and coding experience is highly valued.
Interested candidates, please email Dr. Emily Hatch, with 1) a cover letter describing your research interests and past experience, 2) your CV, and 3) three professional references.
We are also looking to hire a full-time research technician II/III. This position requires at least a 2 year commitment. We study the structure and dynamics of the mammalian nuclear envelope, and our primary interests are to understand why and how nuclear membranes rupture and repair, and how defects in nuclear membrane stability impact cancer development (Hatch et al., Cell, 2013; Maciejowski and Hatch, Ann Rev Cell Dev Biol, 2020; Young, Gunn, and Hatch, MBoC, 2020). The Hatch lab uses a variety of techniques to achieve these goals with a focus on microscopy and cell-based tool development. To apply https://careers-fhcrc.icims.com/jobs/18575/job?hub=7
We are currently accepting rotation students enrolled in the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Molecular & Cell Biology program."
The Hatch lab is a team of independent researchers working together to understand how structural changes in a fundamental cellular structure, the nuclear envelope, impact the course of human disease. Our work is frequently inspired by new advances in microscopy and collaborations with researchers in other fields and our goal is to publish rigorously conducted research that elucidates core principles of nuclear envelope organization and stability.
Increased diversity in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, nationality, gender, along with a commitment to accessibility are critical to enrich and accelerate the work being done in our lab and our scientific community. Along with her team, Dr. Hatch is committed to affirming and protecting the rights of everyone in the lab to a safe and supportive work environment. As part of this commitment, Dr. Hatch believes in mentoring lab members to achieve their best work and their unique professional goals, in addition to furthering scientific progress in the lab.
We are very excited to participate in discussions and trainings led by the Office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion on combating racism and discrimination in the lab and strongly support the work of Hutch United, the Student and Postdoc Advisory Committee, Fred Hutch Rainbow Employees for Equity, the Diversity Council, and other community groups focused on increasing the well-being of scientists from marginalized groups.
