Overview

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 and largest 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.

Responsibilities

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has a 2 year postdoctoral position available through the Cancer Prevention Department. The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Polly Newcomb within the Division of Public Health Sciences. Dr. Newcomb is a leading epidemiologist in the fields of cancer genetics, etiology, screening, and survival. Her research program investigates the causes, treatments, and outcomes of colon cancer using large, population-based studies, clinical trials, and collaboration with local medical centers. Most recently, she has focused on germline and genetics of colorectal neoplasms in sporadic and familial disease in relation to risk and clinical outcomes. The postdoctoral fellow will have access to epidemiologic, genetic (including germline GWAS) and molecular data, large cancer cohort and clinical trial resources, biospecimens, and several other consortium data, available for cutting-edge hypothesis testing and team collaborations. There are opportunities to work on existing projects and to develop new projects addressing relevant research topics. Responsibilities include assisting with genetic and epidemiologic studies, including data collection, directing laboratory analyses, developing collaborations with other researchers, applying new statistical methods under the guidance of senior biostatisticians and epidemiologists, preparing manuscripts, and developing grant proposals.

Fred Hutch provides a highly interactive and supportive environment for junior investigators to grow and develop their future career; it consistently ranks in the top 20 best places to work for postdocs, as surveyed by The Scientist.

Qualifications

Successful applicants will have the following:

* A doctoral degree (MD or PhD) in Epidemiology or related field

* A strong background in epidemiology and biology

* Interest in the investigation of novel areas of cancer genetics and survival

Please include a cover letter detailing your research interest and suitability for this position with your application.
