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 Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position is available in Drs. Charles Kooperberg and Alexander Reiner's group at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The successful applicant will develop and apply statistical/computational methods to analyze whole genome sequencing data and various other types of multi-omics data (DNA methylation, RNA sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics) for elucidating the genetic basis and molecular mechanisms underlying chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease and hematologic conditions (for example clonal hematopoiesis) in multi-ethnic populations. Specific topics/application include, but not limited to trans-ethnic mapping of genetic associations, mediation and Mendelian Randomization analysis, network analysis of high-dimensional multi-omic data, and methods for somatic mutations from whole genome sequence or RNA data.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and CV.
The applicant must have a PhD or equivalent degree in Statistics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Statistical Genetics, or other related fields. The candidate should have solid training in statistical methods and excellent computational skills. In addition, background in biology and genetics, and excellent organization and communication skills are a plus.

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.
