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.

    Responsibilities

These positions are full-time (39 hours per week) for approximately 4 months (June-September). The position does not cover tuition nor does it cover transportation costs to and from SFD headquarters.
