Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. Recognized internationally for its pioneering work in bone-marrow transplantation, Fred Hutch’s five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Fred Hutch, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
Research Technician I/II: Molecular Microbiology/Epigenetic Engineering of Prokaryotes/Eukaryotes—Johnston Lab
The Johnston Laboratory within the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division, is an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative team of microbiologists, synthetic microbiologists, bioinformaticians and engineers. We focus on microbial epigenetics and the application of synthetic biology approaches to understand and engineer the human microbiota. Using cutting edge technologies and methodologies, we seek to gain a deeper functional understanding of what bacteria are doing and how they are doing it, and then to use that information to create novel therapeutics and engineer the next generation of microbe-based technologies for application in human medicine, synthetic microbiology and bioengineering.
We are recruiting a highly motivated research technician with strong expertise in microbiology/molecular biology/genetic engineering of prokaryotes or eukaryotes to join our cutting-edge genomics/epigenomics efforts.
The research technician will be given the opportunity and be responsible for conducting independent and creative research related to the overall mission of the laboratory, specifically relating to design/construction/validation and testing of a suite of novel CRISPR-dCas9-effector systems.
