Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit, unified adult cancer care and research center that is clinically integrated with UW Medicine, a world leader in clinical care, research and learning. The first National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in the Pacific Northwest, Fred Hutch’s global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy, and COVID-19 vaccines has confirmed our reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch operates eight clinical care sites that provide medical oncology, infusion, radiation, proton therapy, and related services, and network affiliations with hospitals in five states. Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures to the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.
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.
The Statistical Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Prevention (SCHARP) at Fred Hutch is a full service statistical and data management center focused on HIV prevention research and COVID-19 vaccine development. Within SCHARP, the Vaccine Immunology Statistical Center (VISC) partners with world-class research programs and immunological laboratories to tackle global public health initiatives in infectious disease. VISC operates within two global research networks: the Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery (CAVD) and the Global Health Vaccine Accelerator Platforms (GH-VAP), both supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
VISC is seeking a Biostatistician II-III. Biostatisticians provide statistical support across a breadth of applications including pre-clinical and clinical trials of novel vaccines and passive immunization regimens, as well as infectious disease observational studies. We work with high-dimensional single-cell, next generation sequencing, and multiplex immunoassay data, with the overarching goal of improving our understanding of the immune system and correlates of protection provided by vaccines. Our methodological focus ranges from traditional biostatistics, to ML/AI, and dynamic modeling. We are particularly interested in candidates who are curious and willing to learn, passionate about science and improving global health, and who are excited to be part of a collaborative multidisciplinary team that supports professional growth and personal well-being. We value scientific rigor, open science, inclusion and diversity.
