Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC), 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 and largest 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 statistical methods and computational tools for managing and analyzing high-throughput biological data including single-cell RNA-seq, flow-cytometry, CyTOF and CITE-seq, to name a few. We then utilize these tools, in collaboration with immunologists and clinicians, to analyze high-dimensional data from pre-clinical and clinical trials in an effort to accelerate the development of new cancer immunotherapies and vaccines. Our lab participates in large collaborative efforts funded by the NIH, Gates Foundation and the CZI including the Human Immunology Project Consortium, the Human Cell Atlas, the Cancer Immunotherapy Trial Network and the Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery.
As a lab, we value inclusion and a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives to inform our work. We believe in supporting each other through mentorship and providing resources for professional development. Given these values, we strive to make our recruitment and promotion processes fair and transparent. Therefore, we strongly encourage all individuals with an interest in the position to apply.
