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
Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.
In 2018, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 26th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.
As a Magnet designated institution, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it’s delivering frontline care to our patients in a kind and caring way, practicing the highest standards of quality and safety or being relentlessly curious as we work towards eradicating childhood diseases, these values are the fabric of our culture and community.

A post-doctoral position is available within the laboratory of Dr. Adrian Piliponsky at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington (Seattle, WA).
Research in Dr. Piliponsky’s lab is focused on the regulation of the innate immune response to bacterial infections; with special interest on mast cells and basophils. Please refer to our recent publications on basophils and innate immunity in sepsis (Piliponsky et al. Nature Immunology 2019, PMID 30664762) and mast cells and innate immunity during infections with Group B Streptococcus (Gendrin C et al. J Allergy Clinical Immunology 2018, PMID 28916188).
Piliponsky lab uses biochemical and molecular biology approaches in combination with mass spectrometry to validate targets of mast cell proteases. They employ mast cell and basophil-deficient mice, mice deficient in mast cell specific proteases, and immune reconstitution of mice with modified hematopoietic stem cells to investigate the contribution of these targets and their down-regulation by mast cell proteases to inflammation.
The post-doctoral hired for the position will use an array of cellular and molecular approaches (ELISA, cell isolation, flow cytometry, histology, RNAseq and transcriptome analysis, qPCR, bacterial propagation; as well as, animal models of infection). They will also be expected to formulate, execute, and communicate research projects.
Please include at least one publication on your resume.
Also be prepared to copy/paste a cover letter briefly describing your research accomplishments, interests and career goals.
