Job Description

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. Recognized internationally for its pioneering work in bone-marrow transplantation, Fred Hutch's five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Fred Hutch, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and
Seattle Children's, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest.

The Corey Laboratory in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is recruiting a Post-Doctoral Fellow to conduct laboratory bench research using state-of-the-art technologies for defining the tissue immune responses to HSV.

These include laser capture, immunocytochemistry, transcriptional arrays, bioinformatics analyses, and in situ hybridization of HSV DNA and RNA. This is a unique opportunity to interrogate host viral interaction in vivo and use molecular techniques to help define how herpes simplex virus interacts with the human host in vivo at the point of attack.

Seeking a candidate with a Ph.D. in the field of Immunology/Virology. Knowledge of molecular and sequencing techniques. The candidate should be a self-starter and be able to work independently in a team environment. Strong analytical, writing, communication (in English), and problem solving skills are desired.
