Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is an independent, nonprofit organization providing adult cancer treatment and groundbreaking research focused on cancer and infectious diseases. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Washington.
With a track record of global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy and COVID-19 vaccines, Fred Hutch has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. 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 value collaboration, compassion, determination, excellence, innovation, integrity and respect. These values are grounded in and expressed through the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion. Our mission is directly tied to the humanity, dignity and inherent value of each employee, patient, community member and supporter. Our commitment to learning across our differences and similarities make us stronger. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an anti-racist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, anti-racism and inclusion.
The Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology Program (BBE) supplies the statistical and mathematical modeling expertise needed within Fred Hutch’s Vaccine & Infectious Disease Division (VIDD) 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.
The Statistical Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Prevention (SCHARP) at Fred Hutch, housed within the BBE Program, is a full service statistical and data management center focused on HIV prevention research. SCHARP has an annual budget of over $40 million, more than 180 employees and is currently managing over 40 active phase I – III clinical trials in over 150 clinical sites around the world.
BBE is seeking an experienced and dynamic Sr. Contracts & Vendor Manager (SCVM) to join its Program Operations team. This SCVM position independently manages all aspects of contracts and vendor relationships for the BBE scientific program, with a primary focus on supporting the contractual transactions and relationships for SCHARP. The primary scope of responsibility for the SCVM includes management of (1) end-to-end contracting process; and (2) vendor performance and their compliance with contracted scope. The SCVM will strive to control costs, drive service excellence, and mitigate risks to deliver increased value for its stakeholders. The SCVM reports to the Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology (BBE) Program Operations Director and works independently and collaboratively with internal and external partners including principal investigators, program and division leadership, and Center partners including the Office of General Counsel, Procurement, and Compliance.
Our Program Operations 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 ideal 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 the 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).
This position may allow for hybrid work. Most Fred Hutch jobs require some on-campus work. However, there may be flexibility for certain positions. Please check with the recruiter if you are an out-of-state applicant interested only in working outside of the Seattle area.
