    The Malik lab in the Basic Sciences Division of Fred Hutch is looking to hire either a full-time or a part-time lab aide. This lab aide will assist researchers with fruit fly husbandry and stock room maintenance.  Responsibilities will also include media preparation for our bacterial and yeast related projects.  This could be an ideal position for sophomores or juniors who have completed intro to chemistry and are looking to get experience working in a lab, but we encourage anyone qualified to apply.


    If a candidate needs part-time rather than full-time, they must be able to work at least a minimum of 16-18 hours per week, and to commit to the same schedule weekly.  However, preference is for someone at higher part-time hours (25/wk) or full-time.


    • Completion of a high school degree is required
    • Must have completed college level coursework in Biology. Past experience in genetics and/or fruit fly husbandry is desirable.
    • Must have careful attention to detail and a reliable schedule for fixed hours every week.
