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 Hutchs 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 nations first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Womens Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
The Data Coordinator II will work under the supervision of the Project Manager and Principal Investigator and functions as the main Biospecimen Coordinator for a research program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
This research program includes multiple, large, NIH-funded epidemiology projects that focus on research on cancer genetics, etiology, screening, and survival in colorectal cancer and other chronic diseases. The Data Coordinator II will be responsible for the maintenance, organization, and new collection of scientific biospecimens, such as blood, saliva, and tissue, from research participants. This will also include reviewing and entering pathology reports, coordinating lab work, sending and receiving samples from collaborating studies, and updating tracking databases. The employee will work closely with the research team at Fred Hutch, as well as collaborators at other scientific institutions. This is an exciting position, ideal for someone with some biology, laboratory, or clinical background, who would like to apply their knowledge to a dynamic public health research 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.
