Cures Start Here. 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. Careers Start Here.We are seeking a Project Coordinator with prior work experience to facilitate coordination, pre-laboratory sample preparation, shipment, and management of samples, as well as assist with data management and documentation for projects within the Genetics and Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer Consortium (GECCO). This NCI-funded consortium is integrating somatic and germline genetics with environmental risk factors in order to identify susceptibility genes associated with colorectal cancer risk, and investigate interactions between genes and environmental factors.We are seeking an experienced Project Coordinator to assist with sample management - including documenting and maintaining records for samples stored at the Hutch, and coordinating with studies and labs regarding sample preparation, shipment, and tracking for new laboratory work. S/he will work directly with contributing studies, the GECCO Coordinating Center, and the service laboratories. Additionally, the candidate will support members of the Coordinating Center team in harmonization and management of epidemiologic data from consortium studies. Lastly, the candidate will assist meeting scheduling, note taking, publication submissions, and other tasks, as needed.A Master's degree in a related field with three years project coordination is ideal.BA/BS degree with at least five years project coordination experience in a research setting is required (with all years of experience occuring post-graduation).A successful candidate will have had experience working with samples and hands-on experience in the laboratory conducting genotyping and/or genome-wide association studies is desirable.Experience organizing epidemiologic data is also desired.Candidates will have excellent written and verbal communication skills, as this work will be done within a collaborative consortium setting.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before ...that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
