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 Geoff Hill Lab , in Seattles Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Clinical Research Division, Program in Transplantation and Immunology, is recruiting a Staff or Senior Staff Scientist. The objective of the lab is to gain a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that initiate and maintain graft-versus host disease, graft-versus leukemia and pathogen-specific immunity after stem cell transplantation. The goal is to develop innovative immunological therapies that can be translated to the clinic in order to prevent GVHD and/or improve leukemia and pathogen-specific immunity.
Responsibilities for this highly-skilled laboratory scientist will include: designing, performing and analyzing experiments and troubleshooting technical issues and mentoring junior lab members. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the preparation of manuscripts and grant proposals and oversee large programs that include collaborating laboratories.
Applicants should be highly-motivated scientists, with a MD or PhD degree in Immunology and four or more years of post-Ph.D. laboratory experience required. An ideal candidate will have a working knowledge of transplant and cancer immunology, and experience with technologies used in the lab, including mouse models, high parameter flow cytometry and single-cell RNA sequencing. A track record of high impact publications and early success in grant applications is expected.
Required experience includes:
Murine models of experimentation
Cellular immunology, including flow cytometry
A successful candidate will also have:
Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail and reliable record-keeping
Ability to design and execute protocols, and work independently including experimental troubleshooting
Effective communication and interpersonal skills for working with other lab members and productive interactions with collaborators

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.
