We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows interested in exploring how the dysregulation of chromatin modifying enzymes and developmental pathways contribute to pancreaticobiliary cancer pathogenesis and, further, whether these pathways present liabilities that can be exploited for cancer therapy.
The candidate is expected to have a PhD in the biological sciences and/or MD, a proven track record of productivity in science and a strong interest in cancer research. Applicants with specific expertise in RNA biology, biochemistry, cell biology, cancer genomics, animal models or computational biology are highly encouraged to apply. Proficiency in written and verbal English is required.
Fellows will be exposed to the rich and inclusive scientific environment at the Fred Hutch. They will learn to generate and exploit a series of cancer model systems including genetically engineered mouse models, patient-derived xenografts and novel human cancer cell lines to understand fundamental pathogenic mechanisms underlying pancreaticobiliary cancer. They will also get ample opportunity to present their work and be supported in their postdoctoral fellowship applications.
