The need for data science in cutting-edge biological research continues to increase at a rate exceeding the ability of many researchers to keep pace. To help meet these needs, fredhutch.io was established at Fred Hutch to facilitate education about and promote access to computational resources for researchers. The Hutch is hiring a Training and Outreach Specialist to work closely with the fredhutch.io Training Coordinator and the Hutch Bioinformatics and Data Science Cooperative (The Coop) to organize communities, help coordinate and promote Coop and fredhutch.io events, develop curricula, and help train and teach researchers. This is an opportunity for a motivated and interested individual to work closely with Hutch researchers, facilitating the advancement of basic and translational biomedical science. This role would be housed within the Hutch Data Commonwealth (HDC), a division with Fred Hutch that drives the development of data-intensive research capabilities and infrastructure across scientific divisions and disciplines through software and data engineering, training, and strategic partnering.
