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 Sullivan Lab in the Division of Human Biology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is looking for a highly motivated individual to help establish a new laboratory studying cell metabolism in cancer. Our work will include molecular biology, tissue culture, biochemistry, and mass spectrometry to identify new metabolic targets for cancer therapy, make new connections of how cells use metabolism to support tumor growth, and to discover new metabolic products and pathways. The ability to work in a team as well as taking individual initiative will be essential.
The technician will work under the direction of Dr. Sullivan or other high-level laboratory personnel. Initially, the candidate will help establish the lab by aiding in lab setup decisions, purchasing supplies, testing equipment, and organizing the lab. Once the lab is running, the candidate’s time will be divided into two parts:
Ability to work independently to perform experiments and perform lab management roles with little supervision will be required after training.
