This position is for a postdoctoral scholar who will be an active member and participant in the laboratory of Dr. Manuel Ferreira. Human tumor tissue and cell line based models will be used. The position will continue to lead the laboratory efforts in molecular techniques. Specifically, DNA, RNA and proteomic based identification of pathways of oncogenesis will be a priority of this effort. Interpretation of genome/exome sequencing, RNA sequencing and proteomic techniques and translational experiments in situ are essential. Functional validation using cell based assays are also essential to this effort. It is expected that the position will work independently but also collaboratively with all members, post-docs and trainees in the lab. The position will also assist in the preparation of grant reports and grant proposals. Grant funding, both independent and collaborative (with Dr. Manuel Ferreira) are the focus of the position's efforts in the laboratory.
This appointment as a Postdoctoral Fellow entails no formal teaching responsibilities; however, the position will be expected to assist in training laboratory personnel (postdoctoral fellows, students, and technicians). Academic staff members at the University of Washington are expected to engage in productive research, and to seek publication of their results in peer-reviewed research journals.
Postdoctoral scholars are represented by UAW 4121 and are subject to the collective bargaining agreement. The initial appointment shall be for a minimum of 1 year (12 month service period).
