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 Lund lab in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Research Division is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on human mucosal immunity projects. Specifically, projects involve investigating how exposure to and infection with various viruses such as HIV and HSV affect mucosal and peripheral immune activation, as well as defining unique features of human tissue lymphocytes compared to circulating lymhocytes. The candidate must be proficient in high-parameter flow cytometry and have extensive experience in experimental immunology. In addition, the candidate must be responsible, organized, and self-motivated, and able to efficiently manage time and experiments.
A statement of research interests and/or a cover letter are required. Salary will be commensurate with (appropriate) experience.
A PhD in immunology, microbiology, cell biology, or a related field is required
Candidates must have experience with flow cytometry, and be willing to work with microbial agents and/or infected tissues
The candidate must show initiative, the willingness to take up new skills and responsibilities, and be a team player
Must be willing to work with biohazardous/infectious agents (BSL2+) under carefully controlled conditions

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.
