Position Details

Position Description

The Doulatov lab at the University of Washington has opportunities for postdoctoral scientists interested in the biology of hematological malignancies. We have a unique translational focus on human hematopoiesis, using gene editing of HSCs and induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs) to study clonal progression from normal to premalignant and malignant hematopoiesis. The fellow would lead high-impact independent projects focused on: i) spliceosome mutations and aberrant splicing in malignant hematopoiesis, and ii) our recent discovery of nuclear lamin B1 deletions in HSC genome organization and malignant transformation (Hsu et al. Blood, 2019; Clough et al. Blood, 2021; Reilly et al. Cell Stem Cell, 2022). Projects are funded by the NIH and Kuni Foundation, and involve a strong network of collaborations across University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.

Our lab is affiliated with the Department of Medicine, Genome Sciences, and the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM). This is an excellent opportunity to be part of our inclusive and dynamic team with a strong translational focus to launch an independent career in academia or industry. Lab alumni have a strong record of successfully transitioning to independent positions in academia or industry. The Seattle area is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and is a vibrant place to live and work.
