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.

The Brent lab is seeking a Research Technician I-II to support our research in the causes and consequences of non-genetic phenotypic variation.
The project specifically includes design and construction of "controllers", complex artificial systems allowing tunable variation-suppressed suppressed expression of genes in mammalian cells. The Research Technician II will also be involved in efforts to develop Augmented Reality (AR) methods and protocols to aid the controller project, and to in work to learn how to use AR to enable other researchers to better carry out a variety of fundamental experimental manipulations.
For this position, we are hoping to find an extraordinary and dedicated individual. The lab is a multidisciplinary environment and offers a number of intellectual growth paths by which scientists willing to engage can continue to develop scientifically. Initial funding for this position is for one year but position would be maintained if funding permits.
This position might call for research activities that include but are not limited to:
Strong candidates should have experience with genetics in a prokaryotic system, or in the model systems S. cerevisiae, C. elegans, or D. melanogaster. Relevant research experience with some combination of genetics, molecular biology, single cell assays, DNA/genomic based analytical methods, and cell culture.
