We have an opening for a Bioinformatician 2 in the Bedford lab to work on genomic epidemiology and evolutionary analysis of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2, influenza and Ebola virus. This position will contribute to ongoing work on two major projects: Nextstrain and Seattle Flu Study.

 

Nextstrain is an award-winning tool for tracking infectious disease epidemics developed in collaboration with the Neher lab at the University of Basel. Nextstrain won the Open Science Prize in Feb 2017 and has been instrumental in analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, Ebola outbreaks, Zika spread in the Americas and is used by the World Health Organization to aid in the process of influenza vaccine strain selection.

The Seattle Flu Study is a collaboration of groups at the Brotman Baty Institute, the Fred Hutch, the University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s. Already in its third year, this study has produced high-resolution analyses of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza in Seattle by building a software platform that processes subject and sample metadata, lab assay results, and raw and processed genome data in near-real time.

 

Responsibilities

The role involves both development and maintenance of bioinformatic analyses and pipelines which underpin both projects’ research aims. This will involve a mixture of independent work, collaboration with scientists in the group and interactions with the wider community. The vast majority of code is open-source. Specific examples from Nextstrain include analytic pipelines that clean and ingest genome metadata, construct consensus genomes, and build phylogenetic trees, as well as tools to enable a diverse range of collaborators to run SARS-CoV-2 analyses through Nextstrain.

 

Work on Seattle Flu Study focuses on pipelines to assemble raw sequence data into consensus SARS-CoV-2 and influenza genomes and deposition of these consensus genomes to public databases.

Interfacing with project collaborators in-person and online is a key aspect of this position. The bioinformatician will work within a small team of existing members of the Bedford lab and the larger research group of the Seattle Flu Study. The Nextstrain team communicates openly about project and organizational decisions and encourages participation by all team members in the decision-making process.

Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures to the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.

 

The Seattle Vaccine Trials Unit (VTU) is a program of the Vaccine & Infectious Disease Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.  In existence since 1987, the VTU has conducted an array of studies researching the immunology and prevention of HIV, malaria, and COVID.  Led by Principal Investigator Julie McElrath, the VTU conducts clinical trials and observational studies. The VTU’s main clinical trials clinic is located on First Hill. The COVID Cohort observational study is based at the main campus of Fred Hutch on South Lake Union.

 

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.

The Clinical Research Nurse/Nurse Practitioner implements and conducts clinical research studies involving human participants for the Vaccine Trials Unit research program.

The COVID Cohort observational study involves enrolling individuals with active COVID, and follow-up of these individuals as well as others who have recovered. The clinical trials primarily involve enrolling healthy volunteers to receive HIV prevention interventions (vaccines, immunoprophylaxis, etc) in Phase 1, 2, and 3 trials.  

 

The incumbent works under the overall supervision of the Principal Investigator and direct/on-site supervision by the COVID Cohort Lead Nurse Practitioner or VTU Medical Director.  The work will be conducted as part of a clinical research team including the VTU physicians, other clinicians, and other unit personnel.

  • Coordinate with other staff members to prepare blood and nasal samples for clinical and research labs, and other communication with the research lab.  
  • Other work may include communicating with participants by phone, text, or email, to address questions regarding COVID exposures and/or symptoms and provide guidance for accessing on-study testing or clinical care.
  • Data clarification as needed, in coordination with the overall study team (PI, lead clinician, data team).
  • Occasionally conduct participant visits at off-campus locations. The locations are based on existing collaborations with first responders, and have included study conduct at remote locations including fire stations in Everett.  Additional remote locations may be involved as scientific priorities evolve with the ongoing study of SARS-CoV-2.
     

Major duties/Clinical Trials:

  • Determine participant study eligibility, obtain informed consent, and initiate participant enrollment in research studies in accordance with regulatory and GCP guidelines and institutional policy including:
    • Provide a complete explanation of a study to potential volunteers to obtain informed consent.

  • Provide support for community education and recruitment with the VTU community educator, recruitment coordinator, and outreach team.
  • Assist the study coordinators in managing the daily operations of a research study.

  • Provide leadership and guidance to program/research/clinical assistants in the execution of their duties relative to protocol implementation and conduct.
  • Maintain thorough knowledge in the field through attending related project meetings and symposia, reading related literature, and maintaining professional associations.

For both positions, the clinician will maintain certification for clinical responsibilities, GCP, Human Subjects Research, and protocol-specific trainings.
