Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Basis of Quiescence

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Seattle, WA, United States


Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.

A person in this position will determine the molecular basis for cell quiescence using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism. This person will use molecular biological, molecular genetic, biochemical and genomic approaches. These experiments will require extensive experience in these approaches, and therefore Ph.D. is a prerequisite for the position.


A post-doctoral research fellow poition is available in the Tsukiyama Lab in the Basic Sciences Division, which studies chromatin, the complex of DNA and proteins that make up our chromosomes, and how its structure controls essential processes that take place on DNA. The responsibilities of this position will be to determine how cell quiescence is achieved using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model organism.


A Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry or other scientific discipline is required, as well as experience in working with Saccharomyces cerevisiae and associated molecular biological, molecular genetic, biochemical assays and genomic approaches.

To apply, please submit a CV and a cover letter that describes your research accomplishments as well as your interest in the Tsukiyama laboratory research program.
