A postdoctoral position is available in the hematology research laboratory of Dr. David Dale in the Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine at the University of Washington. The laboratory's work is directed toward understanding the mechanisms and finding therapies for hereditary hematological diseases causing neutropenia. The specific responsibilities for this position include developing and performing in-process and end-product assays using human cell lines. This is a full-time position on an annual, 12 month appointment.
This position requires substantial expertise in assay development, preferably with experience in human hematopoietic and induced pluripotent cell culture, flow cytometry, western blotting, PCR and DNA sequencing.
