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.

The Adair laboratory, housed within the Clinical Research Division, is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow or research associate to study blood cell gene therapy for genetic and infectious diseases and cancer. The post-doctoral fellow will investigate and develop methods to efficiently introduce genetic editing into stem cells and/or T cells and assess phenotypical and biological changes and performance in these cells. The fellow will work under the PI and other senior members of the research team and will be expected to publish and present their work in both internal and external events.
