Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), 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 and largest 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. Fred Hutch is an active partner in the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), which brings together the leading research teams and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s and UW Medicine. Careers Start Here.
We are seeking a full-time (100% FTE) Statistical Research Associate II (SRA) for research projects within the Cancer Prevention Program, Division of Public Health Sciences that use both clinical trials and observational studies to examine a broad range of lifestyle modifications (diet, physical activity, weight management) and complementary/integrative therapies for cancer prevention and control, especially in under-resourced and vulnerable populations. Data management and data analyses will be conducted for several new and ongoing clinical trials and cohort studies.
The SRA will be involved in collaborative, interdisciplinary research to manage data and conduct analyses in clinical trials and observational cohorts of cancer survivors, as well as individuals at high risk of developing cancer. Clinical trials test behavioral and electronic health interventions (e.g., physical activity trackers, apps, and websites) that generate high dimensional data. We are seeking a master’s-level biostatistician or epidemiologist to support our team. The SRA will have an opportunity to work with several collaborators and there will be opportunities to participate in peer-reviewed scientific publications.
Collaboration and cooperation are essential to functioning within this rapidly growing team that values a positive and interdisciplinary culture. Additionally, the SRA will work with multidisciplinary research teams and directly with investigators across multiple sites to implement data quality control procedures, assist in determining optimum statistical study designs, lead in the data management and perform data analyses, and support the development and implementation of statistical methods relevant for clinical trial and observational cohort studies. The SRA will derive diet, physical activity, quality of life, and biomarker data from complex datasets. Tasks will also include conducting quality control analyses. The SRA will prepare written summaries, data completion reports, and tables of results, and will document statistical analyses and assist with manuscript preparation.
