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.
The Paulovich Lab at Fred Hutch is an interdisciplinary team whose mission is to develop and implement tools for protein quantification to enable precision medicine. Our group is highly collaborative, participating in national and international consortia in which teams of scientists, statisticians, and clinicians work together to solve clinical or biological problems to impact human health.
Our team is excited to hire a highly motivated and interactive upper level scientist, with strong bioinformatics skills, experience in mass spectrometry-based proteomics data analysis, wet lab bench experience in analytical chemistry or molecular biology, and a publication (in peer-reviewed journals) record of accomplishment. The candidate will work closely as part of our translational proteomics team to plan experiments, process samples, generate high-quality data, and integrate and analyze datasets. The position includes drafting manuscripts for publication and giving oral presentations; thus a demonstrated track record of peer-reviewed journal publications, as well as excellent English written and oral presentation skills are required.
The work environment is highly collaborative and productive, requiring effective inter-personal communication skills, the capability to focus on multiple tasks and meet milestones, and the ability to function as part of a team- independently with minimal supervision. The candidate will contribute to the team both bioinformatically and at the bench, as needed. The work is quantitative, and attention to detail and the ability to follow standard operating protocols (SOP) are critical.
