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 highly motivated postdoctoral fellow is sought for a position to join a research laboratory in the Translational Research Program. The lab has developed a novel antibody-based platform for discovering proteomic, glycomic and autoantibody biomarkers of cancer.
The fellow will devise and conduct laboratory efforts in human samples related to lung cancer. In addition to molecular and cellular laboratory bench skills, excellent organizational and database skills are required. The position will require contribution both as an individual and as part of a larger team and will involve all aspects of research from experimental design to manuscript preparation and publication. This will involve interaction with epidemiologists, biostatisticians and other laboratory scientists. The successful candidate must have excellent communication and organizational skills, the ability to develop creative approaches to experimental design, and thrive both in independent research and while working collaboratively.
A Ph.D. degree in the field of molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry or a related field is required. Experience in the use of immunoassays would be considered an asset.
