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 for 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.
Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology Program (BBE) supplies the statistical and mathematical modeling expertise needed within Fred Hutch’s Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division to accomplish our ambitious objective of eliminating disease and death attributable to infection. We are also accelerating research to confront the growing burden of COVID-19, HIV, and cancer-related infectious diseases worldwide.
BBE is seeking a dynamic person to join its Research Administration team. This Research Administrator (RA) position collaborates with internal and external partners including principal investigators, program, division and Center staff, and sponsor organizations to ensure timely and accurate accounting and financial reporting of sponsored research in compliance with federal and external sponsor regulations and requirements.
Our Research Administration team and our scientists are supportive, collaborative, and respectful of each other. This is an incredibly busy time for the program with the current global health crises and new funding opportunities. The right candidate will take initiative, think proactively and strategically, and adapt well to change. The ability to work independently and exercise good judgement when appropriate is essential to success in this position. Curiosity about vaccine research, public health and the evolution and spread of viruses is a bonus as our program serves as the Statistical and Data Management Center for several international collaborative study networks including: HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium (IDCRC), Vaccine Immunology Statistical Center (VISC) and COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN).
The Research Administrator reports to the BBE Research Administration Manager, and works independently and collaboratively to coordinate grant and contract proposals and renewal submissions; draft and process regulatory compliance documentation; prepare and monitor project budgets from pre-award to close-out; advise Principal Investigator(s) and Associate Director(s) of the current budget status and projections; ensure adherence to sponsor rules and regulations as well as Fred Hutch policies and guidelines; and interact with administrative personnel and external organizations regarding fiscal and regulatory aspects of the projects/program. They also participate in programmatic, divisional or institutional improvement projects, and problem resolution related to research administration.
