    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. Careers Start Here.


    A quantitative biology laboratory in the Division of Basic Sciences is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with PhD in mathematics or physics.


    Our lab uses experimental biology, quantitative measurements, and mathematics to examine microbial communities.  For example, how might different microbial species interact with each other to allow the community to carry out a function that would have otherwise been impossible?  How might we effectively manipulate or evolve community functions? How might we extract information from time series data? Our lab provides excellent opportunities to combine theory with biology.


    We are interested in recruiting an accomplished mathematician and/or physicist to tackle biological problems from the theory side.


    More information about the group may be found at honeycomb.fhcrc.org.


    A Ph.D. in physics, mathematics or engineering is required.


    Ideally, the candidate is familiar with out-of-equilibrium stochastic processes or time series analysis.


    The successful candidate should have a strong background in physics, mathematics, and/or engineering.


    To apply, please submit a CV, a cover letter stating your long-term goal, and a list of professional references.
