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 Gottardo Lab is a Research Lab within the Computational Biology department at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. We develop bioinformatics tools for accessing and analyzing high-throughput biological data, such as RNA sequencing and flow cytometry data. As part of a four member team, you will be working on ImmuneSpace ( www.immunespace.org ), a web-based application to support research by the Human Immunology Project Consortium, a project of the National Institutes of Health. ImmuneSpace provides researchers with tools that make it easy to find and analyze immunological data then share the results with colleagues or the general public.
As a team, the members of ImmuneSpace aim to craft quality code as we improve our systems of DevOps, automated testing, and data visualization. Our goal is produce high-quality features that meet scientists' needs using a collaborative and engaging workflow.
As a lab, we value inclusion and a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives to inform our work. Given these values, we strive to make our recruitment and promotion processes transparent, fair, and supportive. To learn more about the lab, check out: https://research.fhcrc.org/gottardo/en.html .

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.
