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\u2019s 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\u2019s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women\u2019s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
The Research Administration group in the Epidemiology Program in the Public Health Sciences Division is looking for a self-starting, communicative individual to join our team. Research Administrators work closely with several Principal Investigators (scientists) to proactively provide compliant and effective funding, budget and regulatory administration as well as general day-to-day administrative support.
Our team supports scientists and staff whose work is focused on the broad goals of (i) identifying the causes of human cancer and its progression, (ii) advancing understanding of the basic mechanisms that lead to cancer and its progression, and (iii) translating discoveries into effective prevention strategies. This position works in an autonomous manner, but under general direction, to complete tasks and reports to the Program Operations Director.
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.
