The mission of Fred Hutch is the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. The Hutch conducts research of the highest standards to improve prevention and treatment of cancer and related diseases.
Our 40-plus years on the front lines of cancer research have led to cures for some types of the disease — and have offered proof that the immune system can stop others. Propelled by our ongoing commitment to excellent science and creative innovation, we’re making major inroads in the fight against cancer.
Lifesaving research demands more than innovation and dedication. It requires curiosity, creativity, and fresh and varied perspectives. That’s why diversity is a core Fred Hutch value that is integral to our work.
We were the first U.S. cancer center to pledge commitment to CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, and we cultivate a workplace that welcomes diverse perspectives and experiences. Our director of diversity and inclusion — in partnership with an executive council of senior leaders and an employee advisory group — leads our efforts to build a fully inclusive and informed workforce.
Since 2013, Hutch United has been promoting the success of underrepresented minority scientists at Fred Hutch. With the goal of fostering a diverse community, it provides important mentoring, fellowships and networking opportunities.
Fred Hutch is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to workforce diversity. We strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
The future of science rests in the hands of the next generation of researchers. Fred Hutch helps budding investigators — including high school students, secondary school teachers, college and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows — prepare to make tomorrow's breakthroughs. Our wide-ranging education and training programs develop scientists at all academic levels, from early high school through early career.
