Join the James Lab
We are a group of researchers with diverse scientific background collectively focused on improving therapies for immune-related disorders.
The James lab is affiliated with the University of Washington and currently take students from the following programs: Molecular and Cellular Biology Program, Department of Pharmacology, Medical Scientist Training Program, M3D and Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute. The lab is interested in rotation students.
Post-Doctoral and Medical Fellows
The James lab is interested in applications from medical or post-doctoral fellows. Please send a CV and names for references. Excellent candidates will clearly articulate how their previous research experience will set them up for success in the James lab. New ideas related to B cell biology and disease are encouraged!
Training You Will Get in the Lab
We use a large variety of experimental techniques, including those that require computational expertise. Scientists, students, post-docs and fellows in the lab will become familiar with multiplexed screening assays and with a variety of low throughput approaches. For mentorship, you can expect interest/excitement, support, guidance, resources and availability.
Expectations of Members of the Lab
- Contribute! Communicate what you need, help other lab members learn new things, present your research to the wider community (conferences, papers, etc), and make a proactive effort to ensure that the lab runs smoothly.
- Innovate and integrate! Don’t ignore confounding results – instead, be curious and figure out the why. Do leverage concepts from another field that can be applied to ours.
- Consider! Do interpretable experiments – include proper controls and carefully document your results/methods.
