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.

A Computational Biologist/Bioinformatics Analyst position in the Prostate Cancer Program (Peter Nelson, Michael Haffner, John Lee, and Valeri Vasioukhin) in the Division of Human Biology is available immediately. We are seeking a highly motivated individual who is interested in studying the genetics and epigenetics of cancer including single cell analysis using computational approaches. Candidates who are excited about large/complex ‘omics’ data analysis and cancer research are encouraged to apply. The position has a competitive salary with great benefits.
The Prostate Cancer Program uses new DNA sequencing technologies to study cancer genomes. The lab is also focused on research involving liquid biopsies, such as cell-free DNA and circulating tumor cells, and developing new computational approaches to leverage these data for genome discovery and cancer burden monitoring. The research interests/projects in the prostate cancer program include:
