美国弗雷德·哈钦森癌症研究中心分子神经科学博士后研究员职位

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Neuroscience

Overview

Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.

At Fred Hutch, we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization.  We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.

A postdoctoral fellow position in Molecular Neuroscience is available in the lab of Dr. Linda Buck at Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center. The lab is part of the Basic Sciences Division, which investigates diverse areas of molecular and cellular biology, including neuroscience, virology, and evolutionary biology.

The Buck Lab is investigating fundamental mechanisms underlying brain function. Current projects focus on molecular mechanisms involved in stress and fear and the control of appetite. These include elucidation of genes and neural circuits that regulate these functions and how they are modulated by the olfactory system. Methods used include cutting edge tools for genetic, chemical and optical control of neuronal function, imaging of gene expression and neuronal activation, gene editing to analyze specific gene functions, and single cell genomics.

Responsibilities

The fellow will be responsible for developing and executing a project related to current and future interests of the lab, as determined by discussions with Dr. Buck. The successful candidate will be an individual who is enthusiastic about science and is capable of independent research.

Qualifications

Required

◦PhD in molecular/cell biology, molecular neuroscience, computational biology, or related field

◦Excellent knowledge of fundamental molecular and cell biology

◦Experience using molecular techniques for cloning and for analysis of nucleic acids and proteins

◦Experience using immunohistochemistry and/or in situ hybridization for analyses of gene expression

Preferred

◦Experience with RNA sequencing and bioinformatics

◦Experience in mouse breeding and genotyping

◦Knowledge of neuroscience
