Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC), 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, the Center's five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting cutting-edge basic and applied science.

The Hutchinson Center, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and Seattle Children's, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest. The Program in Immunology at FHCRC is a leader in the development and clinical application of adoptive immunotherapy for cancer. Join us and make a difference!

The position will involve utilization of novel cellular and molecular immunology approaches in both the in vitro and in vivo settings, with a view to developing improved strategies for T cell therapy in future translational studies.

Applicants will have a MD and/or a PhD in a biological science. The ideal candidate will have a strong research background with robust skills in human T cell immunology. To be successful in this position, the post-doctoral research fellow must be highly motivated and driven to establish a career as a future independent investigator.
