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 and largest 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. Fred Hutch is an active partner in the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), which brings together the leading research teams and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s and UW Medicine. Join us and make a difference! Careers Start Here.

 

At Fred Hutch, we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization.  We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.   


A postdoctoral research position in epidemiology with focus on cancer prevention and survivorship in ethnically diverse populations is available at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Hutchinson Center provides a challenging academic and supportive multi-disciplinary research environment.

Responsibilities

We are seeking a recent or prospective doctoral graduate (Ph.D. or equivalent qualification) with a background in Epidemiology and related subject areas to cancer prevention and survivorship. Candidates should have an interest in the investigation of novel, interdisciplinary research questions related to identifying strategies to improve cancer survivorship and cancer outcomes using lifestyle behavioral interventions (nutrition, physical activity, energy balance) and observational study designs. This position will be under the direction of Dr. Heather Greenlee, member of the Public Health Sciences and Clinical Research Divisions at Fred Hutch and Director of Integrative Medicine at the SCCA.

 

Dr. Greenlee’s research program uses both clinical trials and observational studies to examine a broad range of lifestyle intervention and complementary/integrative therapies for cancer prevention and control, especially in under-resourced and vulnerable populations. The candidate will be responsible for data analysis and manuscript preparation on two ongoing National Cancer Institute R01-funded studies, in addition to participating in other new and ongoing studies.  The Mi Vida Saludable study is an ongoing 2x2 factorial designed trial testing the separate and synergistic effects of in-person and eHealth diet and physical activity interventions on behavioral outcomes in Latina breast cancer survivors.  The Pathways Heart Study is an ongoing observational study examining predictors of cardiovascular disease in breast cancer patients within a large integrated health system.  Responsibilities will include analyzing data, preparing manuscripts, presenting at research conferences, implementing research protocols, and contributing to grant writing.  Studies will include single institution and multi-site trials, including local and national clinical trials consortia, as well as observational cohorts.

Qualifications

  • A Ph.D. or equivalent degree is required with background in epidemiology, health services research, biostatistics, or a closely related field
  • Experience using SAS and R is required, additional experience using Stata is preferred
  • Experience analyzing data related to cancer survivorship and/or cancer outcomes is preferred
  • Experience with analyzing data generated by eHealth interventions and/or physical activity measurement devices is preferred
  • Experience and skill with the visual and graphical representation of data is preferred

Additionally, data include tumor immune characterization in colorectal cancer cases. Furthermore, genome-wide germline genetic data and harmonized environmental/lifestyle risk factor for up to 150,000 colorectal cancer cases and controls. Our team also aims to evaluate the impact of racial and ethnic diversity on colorectal cancer utilizing genetic and molecular epidemiological data.

Responsibilities

The postdoctoral candidate will primarily work on integrative tumor analyses, as well as immune-related somatic and germline characteristics associated with colorectal tumors and survival outcomes. The successful applicant will work on multidisciplinary research teams to perform data analyses, develop and/or implement novel statistical methodology, incorporate functional genetic information, and publish research results. The incumbent will be expected to work independently to complete data analysis. In addition, they will participate in the presentation of research, as well as in the writing of publications to disseminate the analyses.
