About Us

Hope. Care. Cure. These three simple words capture what we do at Seattle Children’s – to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.  Are you ready to engage with a mission-driven organization that is life-changing to many, and touches the hearts of all? #HOPECARECURE

 

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

Postdoctoral Position in Genomic Analysis Of Mammalian Development and Human Structural Birth Defects.

 

Job Summary:

 

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Center for Developmental Biology and Regenerative Medicine at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute, in partnership with the University of Washington Department of Genome Sciences and the Brotman Baty Institute. This project is a collaborative effort between David Beier, MD PhD, and Jay Shendure, MD PhD, to study the mechanisms contributing to structural birth defects. The primary task will be to manage the husbandry and preparation of embryonic mutant mice for single cell RNA sequencing, and to perform comparative computational analysis of the data.

 

This is part of a larger program project to use state-of-the art sequencing and imaging methods to pursue discovery and functional analysis of genes required for normal mammalian development and organogenesis.

 

The post-doctoral fellow will develop scientific skills as appropriate for this level of training position, and carry out research/development activities in support of assigned research projects.  Responsibilities include protocol development and review, data collection and analysis, manuscript and fellowship application preparation, and training in the conduct of laboratory and computational research.

Requirements

Required Education/Experience:


- Doctorate degree (PhD/MD/DVM) in genomics, genetics, computational biology, developmental biology, or other relevant area from an accredited university training program.

-Experience using basic research techniques of specialty area

 

Preferred:

 

- Experience in developmental biology of humans or model organisms.

- Demonstrated experience in computational analysis.

- Robust record of publication and/or grant funding.

- Excellent organization, writing, presentation and communication skills.
