    As one of the nation's top five pediatric research centers, Seattle Children's Research Institute is dedicated to providing hope, care, and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

    Our investigators are involved in hundreds of projects that cover every phase of research, from studying how diseases work to improving investigational therapies. They have pioneered groundbreaking cystic fibrosis treatments and cutting-edge cancer therapies that help a child's immune system defeat cancer, and made other major contributions to pediatric medicine. 

     

    Researchers work in close collaboration with one another, their colleagues at partner institutions including the University of Washington and Fred Hutch and our healthcare providers at Seattle Children's Hospital, one of U.S. News & World Report’s top children's hospitals. This collaboration is one of our key strengths, allowing our faculty to draw on a variety of disciplines and techniques as they pursue solutions to some of medicine's most complex problems.

     

    We are committed to not only treating disease but to eliminating it. Help us achieve our vision of being a worldwide leader in pediatric research aimed to improve the health and well-being of children. If you are interested in a challenging career aimed at groundbreaking research, Seattle Children's Research Institute is the place for you.

    Overview

    Dr. Don Sodora is a Professor at Seattle Children’s Research Institute (Center for Global Infectious Diseases). The Sodora Lab is focused on understanding HIV-associated pathogenesis and transmission. The laboratory utilizes both HIV infection of patients and SIV infection of different monkey models to achieve this goal.

     

    A fully supported postdoctoral scientist position is currently available in the Sodora Laboratory. The successful candidate will be involved in studying a currently funded project that assesses the role of antiretroviral (ART) drugs, viral reservoirs and HIV/SIV associated pathogenesis. This project will focus on the liver, and evaluate the immunologic as well as microbiome changes associated with SIV/HIV infection and immune activation that occur in the liver throughout the infection.

     

    The ideal candidate will have a knowledge and experience undertaking experiments in the field of Immunology. Additional expertise in Virology, vaccinology or computational analysis is an advantage. We are seeking applicants who are highly motivated, passionate, and innovative, who are not afraid to take risks and who thrive in a fast-paced and team-oriented environment.

     

    Seattle Children’s Research Institute is a thriving research environment with an excellent group of postdoctoral researchers that engage in various activities organized by the PhD/MD Association (PMA).
