The Srivatsan lab welcomes people from any race, ethnicity, national identity, gender, or sexual background. Our common call is that we are passionate and excited about discovering, building and communicating the wonders of biology to the world. We also believe that our research can be a force for good in the world and that we have an obligation to conduct research accordingly.
The lab is hiring at all levels. We're accepting postdoc applications, graduate students from the University of Washington, and undergraduates in the Seattle area.
Sanjay Srivatsan is an Assistant Professor in the Basic Sciences Division of the Fred Hutch Cancer Center. He received his undergraduate training at the University of California, Berkeley in Bioengineering. Following this he did his PhD with Cole Trapnell and Jay Shendure developing new single-cell sequencing methods to interrogate development. Prior to joining the Hutch, Sanjay was a postdoc in David Baker's lab where designed proteins for use as nanoscopic stains in Cryo-ET. The lab is affiliated with the CompBio Program at the Fred Hutch, the Brotman Baty Institute and the Institute for Protein Design.
A Washington native, she received her undergraduate education at Case Western Reserve University in Biology and Cognitive Science. At CWRU, she was a student researcher in Radhika Atit’s laboratory where she explored the genetic and molecular dynamics of craniofacial development. Over summers, she joined the laboratories of Brian Beliveau and Jay Shendure at the University of Washington where she found herself on the forefront of investigating mammalian organogenesis with single-cell sequencing technologies. Amazed by the trajectory that each cell takes from the very beginning to form complex living beings, she is inspired to understand the course of human development.
