In addition to being an integral part of the management team, the candidate should demonstrate the ability to form and maintain professional relationships beyond the CC office at Fred Hutch and at NCI in support of the Contact Center’s need for continuous learning on cancer content and clinical trials. Specifically, the Oncology Nurse Educator will:

  • Provide non-clinical staff with context for the experience of the cancer patient along the cancer continuum, citing clinical experience for that context when appropriate, and providing a holistic perspective to that individual’s experience.
  • The Oncology Nurse Educator will develop and/or review initial training curriculum; develop and facilitate other continuing education programs for staff as needed, and provide cancer content expertise to other Contact Center trainers
  • Deliver cancer content training to the information specialists who respond to client queries via telephone, e-mail or internet chat using National Cancer Institute approved resources. This training ranges from a more formal group setting to one-to-one education that often occurs informally on a daily basis.
  • Collaborate with Contact Center trainers and supervisors on the delivery of cancer content training, IS initial training, continuing education programs and individualized educational support
  • Provide expertise in oncology information (e.g.) cancer treatment, symptom management, new drug development, epidemiology, statistics, cancer prevention, and early detection
  • Demonstrate expertise in clinical trials to provide context for and advocate the importance of clinical trials while mentoring staff handling clinical trials inquiries through all access channels
  • Work closely with the other Oncology Nurse Educator, CC Management, CC supervisors and with NCI staff to identify and develop cancer content in response to scientific developments.

Responsibilities

A postdoctoral position is available in the MacPherson Lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The project will focus on small cell lung cancer (SCLC), a neuroendocrine tumor type that exhibits initial sensitivity to chemotherapy but invariable emergence of chemoresistance. Our lab is interested in linking specific gene mutations in SCLC to therapeutic vulnerabilities and to chemoresistance. We have developed a panel of new genetically engineered murine models (e.g. see Jia et al, 2018 Cancer Discovery) and patient derived xenograft models that can be used in these efforts.  Many projects in the lab incorporate genome-wide functional screens in cells and in vivo.  These screens are used to identify functionally important genes for SCLC and genetic vulnerabilities that might lead to new avenues to therapeutically target SCLC.  One available project includes interrogating the importance of candidate SCLC driver genes and linking specific SCLC-mutated genes to novel therapeutic approaches. Hits identified through functional screens are followed by therapeutic studies that employ GEM and PDX model.  A second available project applies in vivo genome-wide screens to understand drivers of chemoresistance.

Qualifications

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD or MD and interests in cancer genetics, epigenetics, murine models, functional screening and/or therapeutics. The candidate should be able to drive an individual project but also be highly collaborative.  A strong foundation in molecular and cell biology is essential. The candidate should be independent, enthusiastic and scientifically rigorous.

Responsibilities

Postdoctoral Research Fellows in immuno-oncology – Novel cancer immunotherapies

 

Immunotherapies, such as checkpoint inhibition and adoptive T cell therapies, represent a paradigm shift in the treatment of cancer, inducing impressive responses in diverse malignancies. However, not all patients respond to current immunotherapies and novel therapeutic approaches are needed to circumvent these obstacles.

 

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow positions are available in the Immunotherapy Integrated Research Center at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The successful applicants will join a collaborative team that combines clinical research, animal modeling, computational biology and multiplexed immuno-histochemistry to understand the basic mechanisms of antitumor immunity and apply them to the development of novel immunotherapies.

 

This research program includes the laboratories of: Dr. Aude Chapuis, a translational immuno-oncologist who specializes in adoptive T cell therapies; Dr. Anthony Rongvaux, an immunologist who develops innovative humanized murine models to study the tumor/immune interface; Dr. Raphael Gottardo, a biostatistician with expertise in high-dimensional single cell data analysis; and Dr. Robert Pierce, a pathologist and expert in tumor microenvironment analyses who previously developed tissue-based biomarkers for Merck’s anti-PD-1 pembrolizumab antibody.

 

Our research is focused on understanding the biology and improving clinical outcomes after immune-boosting treatments. Human adoptive immunotherapy trials are initiated and being conducted using the robust Fred Hutch clinical platform. We are performing detailed analysis of patient outcomes to inform next-generation trials, and developing humanized murine models of checkpoint inhibition and adoptive T cell therapy against solid and liquid cancers. We are using single cell RNA sequencing, genome editing and genomic screens in humanized murine to understand how anti-tumoral immunity functions, why it fails in some patients, and how we can overcome current limitations. We use multiparametric immunohistochemistry to validate humanized murine results in humans, using a large biorepository of annotated patient specimens.

 

The scientific questions being addressed include:

  • How can we arm tumor-specific T cells to enhance their efficacy upon adoptive transfer in patients?
  • Can we modulate the immunosuppressive properties of cells found in the tumor microenvironment, particularly macrophages?
  • Can we identify additional immune checkpoints and develop novel inhibitors?

The overall objective of this interdisciplinary project is to provide the scientific basis for future clinical trials, leveraging Fred Hutch’s continuing leadership in the design, clinical testing and commercialization of successful anticancer drugs and immunotherapies.

Qualifications

Desired skills and experience of the applicants:

  • PhD or MD/PhD degree in Immunology, Immuno-oncology, Cellular & Molecular Biology or a closely related field
  • Strong knowledge/understanding of basic immunology
  • Advanced training and experience with animal procedures, flow cytometry, primary cell isolation and culture, molecular biology and/or computational immunology

The successful candidates will be scientifically driven individuals who enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment, with a track record of productive research, demonstrated by at least one first author publication, and with excellent communication skills.

 

Please apply online with a letter summarizing previous work experience, personal strengths and future interests, a resume, and contact information for three professional references.
