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.
At Fred Hutch, we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately under the guidance of Dr. Matthias Stephan, M.D., Ph.D. , (visit the lab webpage by clicking here) to explore the fast-developing and highly interdisciplinary field of immunobioengineering. Using next-generation immunomodulatory synthetic materials, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will develop new approaches - beyond existing T-cell-based therapies - to therapeutically manipulate the immune system against cancer. The successful applicants will fabricate stimulatory biomaterial devices, drug delivery systems and bioactive substances and test their therapeutic potential in preclinical tumor models of adoptive T-cell therapy. The successful candidate will be a scientifically driven, well organized self-starter.
Please include a cover letter describing your interest in this opportunity and suitability for the role with your application.
A statement describing your commitment and contributions toward greater diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in your career or that will be made through your work at Fred Hutch is requested of all finalists.
