Job Description

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 Hutch's 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 Children's, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest.

A highly motivated postdoctoral fellow is sought for a position to join a research laboratory in the Translational Research Program at Fred Hutch. The lab has developed a novel antibody based platform for discovering proteomic, glycomic and autoantibody biomarkers of cancer.

The fellow will lead laboratory efforts in one or more cancer sites (i.e., breast or pancreas cancer). In addition to molecular and cellular laboratory bench skills, excellent organizational and database skills are required. The position will require contribution both as an individual and as part of a larger team and will involve all aspects of research from experimental design to manuscript preparation and publication. This will involve interaction with epidemiologists, biostatisticians and other laboratory scientists so excellent writing and communication skills are necessary.

A Ph.D. degree in the field of molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry or a related field is required. Experience in the use of immunoassays would be considered an asset.
