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.

The Gottardo Lab is a Research Lab within the Computational Biology department at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. We develop bioinformatics tools for accessing and analyzing high-throughput biological data, such as RNA sequencing and flow cytometry data. As part of a four member team, you will be working on ImmuneSpace (www.immunespace.org), a web-based application to support research by the Human Immunology Project Consortium, a project of the National Institutes of Health. ImmuneSpace provides researchers with tools that make it easy to find and analyze immunological data then share the results with colleagues or the general public.
As a team, the members of ImmuneSpace aim to craft quality code as we improve our systems of DevOps, automated testing, and data visualization. Our goal is produce high-quality features that meet scientists' needs using a collaborative and engaging workflow.
As a lab, we value inclusion and a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives to inform our work. Given these values, we strive to make our recruitment and promotion processes transparent, fair, and supportive. To learn more about the lab, check out: https://research.fhcrc.org/gottardo/en.html.
