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.
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. These projects are anticipated to involve analysis of high-dimensional molecular data generated from both tissues and single cells and obtained from subjects enrolled on various studies at the Hutchinson Centre Research Institute in Kampala, Uganda.
Suitable applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, data science, or a closely-related field. Extensive experience with analysis of whole genome, whole exome, and targeted sequence data is required.
