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 Program in Immunology in the Clinical Research Division is looking for a highly-motivated individual to support fundamental research on the mechanisms of immune responses to infection and cancer. The successful candidate will utilize a variety of cutting-edge cellular and molecular techniques to study murine and human immunity. The technician will be closely involved in establishing a new laboratory and in the development of research projects using in vivo murine models. The incumbent should be capable of maintaining detailed laboratory records, analyzing data, and reporting experimental results.
Perform various cellular and molecular experiments on murine and human cells, including multi-color flow cytometry, ELISA, realtime PCR.
Maintain impeccable records of experiments.
Analyze and present results to small groups or at lab meetings.
Assist with the maintenance of lab organization. Other duties as assigned by supervisor will be performed as necessary.
A bachelors degree in biological science and bench research experience beyond course work are absolutely essential. The candidate should ideally have at least 2 years laboratory experience and must be a fast and willing learner. Experience working with murine models, cell culture, flow cytometry, functional assays, PCR, molecular cloning and vector construction are highly desirable.

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.
