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.
This is an exciting opportunity to contribute in a professional software development team at one of Seattles premier non-profit organizations. You will be building tools central to the research efforts of Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, supporting our mission to find cures for cancer. You will work at our lake-shorecampus, featuring a gourmet-quality cafeteria, on-site daycare and an on-site health clinic for employees, less than a mile from downtown Seattle.
The Hutch Data Commonwealth (HDC), a new organization within the Center, has a mission to develop new capabilities to facilitate scientists interactions with large and complex data sets, enabling novel approaches in cancer research. HDC data and software engineers provide the Hutch research community with flexible, extensible, programmatic and interactive access to relevant datasets, analytical tools and visualization toolkits. Our culture is one of service and fun. We value career growth and provide funds for books and training. In addition, team members are encouraged to attend lectures at the Hutch on topics ranging from data mining to progress on anti-body therapies.
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.
