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 Hutch’s 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 nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.


The Innovation Laboratory (iLab) at Fred Hutch is seeking a Masters- or PhD-level data scientist. The iLab is a new collaborative initiative of the Immunotherapy and Translational Data Science Integrated Research Centers (IIRC and TDS_IRC) with a mission to advance the introduction and development of new immuno-oncology research technologies. The iLab will spur in-house development and early adoption of novel techniques, including advanced single cell RNA spatial sequencing, T- and B-cell receptor sequencing, and other DNA/RNA-based technologies. The data scientist will work closely with lab personnel and immunotherapy researchers to develop data analysis methods for new technologies.


Over the past three years, Fred Hutch has launched three Integrated Research Centers (IRCs) to increase collaborative research across the Center and stimulate transformative cancer discovery. The IIRC, led by Dr. Stanley Riddell, and the TDS_IRC, led by Dr. Raphael Gottardo, have joined together and created the iLab to speed adoption of novel technologies, particularly those that generate large datasets of high utility to immunotherapy. The successful candidate will be embedded in the iLab, but will also have close ties to the Gottardo Lab and the TDS_IRC. The iLab will initially be housed in the Bielas Lab. Working closely with Drs. Bielas and Gottardo, the successful candidate will function with a high degree of independence as they manage daily activities. We see the integration of computational work within the iLab as an integral part of its success, providing computational innovation.


As a Fred Hutch strategic initiative, we value inclusion and a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives to inform our work. We believe in supporting each other through mentorship and providing resources for professional development. Given these values, we strive to make our recruitment and promotion processes fair and transparent. Therefore, we strongly encourage all individuals with an interest in the position to apply. To learn more about the IRCs: Immunotherapy ; Translational Data Science


We are seeking a Masters- or PhD-level data scientist to work with the iLab to develop workflows and data analysis pipelines, from novel genomics technologies developed in-house to colboration with select industry partners.

The ideal candidate will support large collaborative projects in a wide range of problems in oncology research and serve as a consultant/link between the iLab, laboratory and clinical scientists. The incumbent will collaborate with laboratory-based scientists, clinical investigators, biostatisticians, data scientists, programmers and computational biologists in two ways:

  • As member of the iLab, creating novel workflows and data analysis pipelines for novel technologies being tested and developed in the laboratory.
  • As a contributing member on teams using novel technologies in the iLab, creating and using computational tools for analyzing clinical and pre-clinical samples.

Through these multi-disciplinary collaborations, the data scientist will support and expand opportunities to apply novel tools and technologies to innovative pre-clinical and clinical studies.

Responsibilities

  • Consult with Fred Hutch researchers collaborating with iLab to solve their data science problems
  • Manage and set scientific priorities across projects
  • Develop and optimize computational pipelines to enable the integration and management of large and complex data sets generated in the iLab

The Avgousti lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow.

 

A hallmark of many diseases and cancers is the aberrant regulation of chromatin. Much like the cellular genome, viral genomes are compacted in virus particles with small basic molecules to maximize space and be poised for gene expression. Some DNA viruses use cellular histone proteins to compact their genomes whereas others use small basic molecules. The Avgousti lab in the Human Biology Division at Fred Hutch uses a multidisciplinary approach to uncover the mechanisms by which viruses hijack chromatin (Nature 2016, J. Virol 2017, Mol Cel Proteomics 2017). Our goal is to advance basic understanding of viral manipulation of chromatin and reveal new aspects of chromatin biology thereby providing new avenues for possible therapeutic advances.

 

Our current research efforts are divided among studies of (1) a small basic protein from adenovirus, protein VII, that serves to compact its genome while wreaking havoc on the host genome, (2) host histones found on herpesvirus genomes during infection and how they can be exploited to block infection, and (3) using viral tools to block inflammation and cancer progression.

 

Additional information about research in the Avgousti lab can be found at:

https://research.fhcrc.org/avgousti/en.html

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will work on collaborative projects in the Avgousti Lab primarily focused on, but not limited to, the understanding the dynamics of protein VII-DNA complexes, protein VII-nucleosome complexes, binding partners and the impact of mutations on viral infection. Candidates should have excellent communication skills, value teamwork and can thrive in a fast-paced environment. 

Qualifications

We are looking for exceptional candidates with a recent PhD, a record of productive research (at least one first-author publication), with knowledge and experience in biochemistry and molecular biology. Preference will be given to candidates with a background in structural biology for the study of viral proteins by crystallography or other biophysical techniques. Virology knowledge is beneficial but not required. Interested candidates should submit a CV, a summary of research experience and interests, and contact information for three references.
