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.
A joint research technician position (full-time) is immediately available in two laboratories; the Laboratory for the Study of Metastatic Microenvironments in the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centers Translational Research Program and the Beronja Lab in the Hutchs Human Biology Division. This is a unique opportunity to drive a technically rigorous, cutting-edge project aimed at advancing work to develop high-fidelity models of cancer immunotherapy.
We are looking for a dynamic, bright, meticulous, and highly motivated individual with strong interest in immunology, microsurgery, and pre-clinical work. You will be responsible for performing standard and investigative laboratory work to support our research programs. This will include working with murine models to conduct ultrasound-guided procedures, and conducting highly organized pre-clinical experiments with a number of experimental endpoints.
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.
