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 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.
Our lab studies the interface between the immune system, tumor cells, and their environment during the earliest moments of cancer metastasis. We place a strong emphasis on understanding thein vivo response through techniques such as intravital 2-photon microscopy, flow cytometry, and single cell RNAseq. Individuals hired for this position would be responsible for performing supervised experiments in our laboratory in support of projects being coordinated by senior staff. Specific duties would include mouse handling and genotyping, microscopy, flow cytometry, tissue culture, data analysis, and coordination of lab reagents and supplies. Prior experience (specifically in the areas of immunology or tumor biology) is a large plus but on the job training in all specific tasks will be provided. The work to be performed requires at minimum a Bachelor's degree in a biosciences area.
Works under the direction of the Principal Investigator or higher-level laboratory personnel. Uses limited discretion and judgment in carrying out experiments.
BA/BS in a biosciences-related field such as immunology, molecular/cellular biology, or microbiology. Must have scientific knowledge in the area of biology and basic laboratory skills. Independent research experience in addition to school lab experience is usually necessary, though will work with the right individual if other research experience is lacking.
