Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
An initiative at the Fred Hutch focused on computational education, called fredhutch.io, is looking for a full-time computational instructor who can lead a team of instructors to expand computational ability at Fred Hutch.
The Training Manager will be responsible for determining training needs and designing/conducting advanced training programs for staff at Fred Hutch. There is a significant amount of existing curriculum, including through https://www.datacamp.com/courses, but you have to understand the material well and answer questions that come up as people do the homework. This will get you started, but we certainly want someone who can gauge needs for education and develop courses accordingly.
Ideally, this would be a full-time person who could teach beginning bioinformatics and intermediate R, and then develop new courses. However, interested part-time instructors should also get in touch. Classes will be held during the workday.
