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.

    Responsibilities

    A Bioinformatics Analyst I/II position is available immediately to join the laboratory of Dr. Edus H. Warren in the Clinical Research Division of Fred Hutch. The bioinformatics analyst will join several ongoing National Institutes of Health-funded projects focused on the immunobiology, immunogenetics, and genomics of cancers and infections common in sub-Saharan Africa.
