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.
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 are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
The Newell Lab is a highly collaborative group within the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division, and the Computational Biology Program in the Public Health Sciences division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The lab focuses on the application and development of novel approaches for studying antigen-specific T cells in the context of cancer and infectious diseases. In addition to leveraging expertise in the use of mass cytometry to deeply profile antigen-specific T cells, novel single cell sequencing and computational approaches are being used that allow for improved examination of T cell phenotypes, function, antigen specificity, as well as T cell receptor repertoire.
Responsibilities and essential job functions include but are not limited to the following:
A successful candidate will have experience in data quality check, data analysis, generating visualizations, writing analyses summaries and abstracts, and managing time across various projects with different collaborators.
