A postdoctoral fellow position fully funded by NIH grant (R01) is available immediately in the Bennett lab at the Seattle Childrens Research Institute.
We are seeking a postdoc to oversee our “HiddenSeq” project, which focuses on novel methods to identify genetic variation in pediatric structural birth defects that is not detected by standard, blood based, short-read DNA sequencing. Using already established cohorts of individuals with vascular malformations as well as ongoing recruitment of individuals with other types of structural birth defects, we aim to show that a great deal of pathogenic genetic variation is missed by current standard of care (blood based exome or genome sequencing) methods. The lab is highly translational with direct interaction with the clinicians managing individuals with these diseases.
See the lab website for more info:
Successful candidates should hold (or be close to finishing) a doctorate degree (PhD/MD/DVM) in genomics, genetics, computational or vascular biology. Will also consider highly-motivated candidates with excellent research background in other areas. Experience with drafting and submitting manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals is required. Preferences given to candidates with experience in DNA sequencing and interpretation, computational analysis, robust record of publication and or grant funding, and excellent organization, writing, presentation and communication skills.
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. Other responsibilities include: analysis of deep exome sequencing of affected tissues from individuals with isolated structural birth defects, analysis of long read sequencing data from individuals with multifocal birth defects, and single cell RNA and ATAC-seq analysis from individuals with vascular anomalies.
How to Apply:
If you are interested in joining our young and growing team please email the following documents to the PI directly (email@example.com).
In particular we encourage individuals with diverse experiences, and those with backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in science and medicine to apply.
Questions? Please contact Dr. Jimmy Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any. I look forward to hearing from you!
