We are a dynamic group currently recruiting both postdoctoral candidates and graduate students interested in studying how deregulation of the protein synthesis machinery initiates cancer development and progression. Candidates interested in merging computational methods with wet bench research using animal models, primary human samples, and cellular/molecular approaches are particularly encouraged to apply.
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Hsieh Lab at the Fred Hutch. Applicants should have a strong background in mouse modeling, RNA biology, and/or cancer biology, be interested in the application of basic science research towards clinically intractable problems faced by cancer patients, and will be expected to be scientifically intrepid. Please send Dr. Hsieh your CV, description of past research and research interests, and 3 references.
Essential Skills and Requirements:
We are looking for exceptional candidates with a recent PhD and/or MD, a record of productive research, and the ability to work independently as well as in collaborative research efforts. A strong background in mouse genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, and/or computational biology are highly desirable. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are required.
We are accepting rotation students currently enrolled in the University of Washington Molecular & Cell Biology and the Molecular Medicine and Mechanisms of Disease (M3D) programs.
