Postdoctoral position in Genomic Analysis Of Human Structural Birth Defects




Job Summary


The Bennett  lab in the Center for Developmental Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Seattle Children’s Research Institute and the University of Washington invites applications for an NIH funded open postdoctoral position, available immediately. The Bennett lab studies pediatric genetic disease and congenital malformations and is focused on developing diagnostic approaches for clinical genetic testing. A major focus is on “hidden” genetic variation not detected by standard DNA sequencing methods. We are currently funded to study vascular malformations, which are caused by post-zygotic tissue restricted mutations, and more recently received funding to use long read sequencing to study other types of structural birth defects. We are also examining non-invasive cell free DNA based methods for diagnosis of vascular malformations and other rare pediatric disease.




Please see the lab website for more info on our lab:




The selected candidate will join the vibrant research community at CDBRM, located in downtown Seattle, as well as the broader human genetics, pediatric, and vascular biology communities in Seattle. This position offers outstanding opportunities to develop unique, independent projects and collaborations across the SCRI and UW communities and beyond. The PI is committed to the career development of trainees, and there are excellent opportunities for career development.




We will consider highly-motivated candidates across a broad range of research backgrounds. Qualifications include a PhD in biological sciences or related area from an accredited university training program and experience with drafting and submitting manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals. The post-doctoral fellow will develop scientific skills as appropriate for this level of training position, and carry out research/development activities in support of assigned research projects.  Responsibilities include protocol development and review, data collection and analysis, manuscript and fellowship application preparation, and training in the conduct of laboratory and computational research
