Will work primarily on statistical methods development for design and analysis of biomarker studies for disease risk prediction, personalized medicine, and surrogate endpoint identification in cancer and infectious diseases.
Will interact with Fred Hutch based faculty outside of VIDD, plus members of the University of Washington faculty in the Division of Virology and Division of Infectious Diseases, and Department of Biostatistics.
Developing immune-based strategies. Our ultimate aim is to reduce our discoveries to practice in the clinic in order to radically transform the approach and prognosis for patients with this devastating disease.
The successful candidate will be a driven individual capable of independent research, as demonstrated by first author publication(s) and presentations, and superior written and oral communication skills.
Aims to understand molecular mechanisms by which glia, which are about half the cells in the nervous system, impact sensory perception, neuron shape and physiology, neural circuit activity, and animal behavior.
Scientific methodologies and areas of focus include, but are not limited to, animal models and murine genetics, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology and metabolism, proteomics, biochemistry, pharmacology, genomics and computational biology.
Will work collaborative projects in the Bleakley Lab primarily on laboratory studies including, but not limited to, cancer antigen discovery and molecular cloning and evaluation of T cell receptors (TCRs) and transgene constructs.
This is a basic science position that focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms of advanced prostate cancer with the opportunity for translational studies evaluating the efficacy of novel therapeutics.
