Lab Manager (Research Technician II, III, or IV)
The Bloom lab in the Division of Basic Sciences and Computational Biology program is recruiting for a lab manager to perform research and assist with the day-to-day operations of the lab. This fulltime position is ideal for a scientist who enjoys interacting with others, and is interested in being involved in a wide variety of projects in an interdisciplinary lab. We are looking for applicants who are interested in long-term career growth and development in the Bloom lab, rather than applicants who want a short-term position prior to applying to medical or graduate school.
The Bloom lab researches the evolution of viruses, and so we are especially interested in applicants with some background in virology, immunology, evolution, or computational biology\u2014however, experience in these areas is not required if an applicant demonstrates an interest and propensity in learning new areas. We are searching for applicants who will make a long-term commitment to the lab, so in return we are happy to make a long-term commitment in training in new techniques.
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.
