Cures Start Here. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch), home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. Recognized internationally for its pioneering work in bone-marrow transplantation, Fred Hutchs five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Fred Hutch, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and Seattle Childrens, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest. Careers Start Here.
This position will support two laboratories in the development of research projects using in vivo murine models. The Rongvaux Lab in 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. This individual will also support translational studies of CRISPR gene editing in the Adair Lab in the Program in Cell and Gene Therapy, also in the Clinical Research Division. They should be capable of maintaining a large murine colony and perform diverse in vivo experimental procedures. This position requires a high level of organization, capacity to coordinate experiments with diverse researchers and collaborators, maintenance of detailed records, and excellent communication skills. Additional laboratory skills (tissue culture, molecular biology) are highly desirable.
Maintain a large murine colony
Perform specialized procedures, such as injections, blood draws and irradiation
Schedule and coordinate experiments with researchers
Purify and cryopreserve human hematopoietic cells
Perform basic flow cytometry analyses
Produce lentiviruses and transduce human primary cells
Other duties as assigned by supervisor will be performed as necessary
Research Technician II - A bachelors degree in biological science and animal research experience beyond course work are absolutely essential. The candidate should have at least two years of full-time, post-bachelor's laboratory experience.
Research Technician III - As Research Technician II but with five or more years of full-time post-bachelor's laboratory experience.
Experience working with murine models is required. Experience with mammalian cell culture and flow cytometry are preferred.
Please include a resume and a brief (1-2 paragraphs) cover letter summarizing your interests and experience.

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.
