Title: Postdoctoral Scholar-Bioengineering, Kueh Lab

Position Details

Position Description

Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the Kueh lab to study gene regulatory circuits controlling T cell development and cytotoxic effector and memory differentiation.  Our lab seeks to elucidate the molecular circuits controlling immune cell fate decisions, to open doors for rational programming of immune cells as next-generation therapeutic agents.  The successful candidate(s) will integrate knock-in reporter mouse models, novel single-cell assays, massively parallel genome-engineering and computational approaches to identify the molecular components of these circuits, elucidate their dynamics and uncover their underlying design principles.

This is a full-time position with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30), with the possibility for yearly renewal dependent upon performance and continued funding. The Kueh lab is part of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. The start date for this position is as soon as possible.  Candidates in the fields of molecular genetics/biology, immunology, developmental biology, systems, synthetic and quantitative biology, or related fields are especially encouraged to apply.  Preference will be given to individuals with expertise in molecular and cell biology techniques, mouse models, and computational or genomics approaches.

Postdoctoral scholars are represented by UAW 4121 and are subject to the collective bargaining agreement, unless agreed exclusion criteria apply. For more information, please visit the University of Washington Labor Relations website.
