The HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) is the world’s largest publicly funded multi-disciplinary international collaboration facilitating the development of vaccines to prevent HIV/AIDS, through clinical research studies. Most recently, the COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN) was formed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health to respond to the global pandemic. Using the infectious disease expertise of their existing research networks and global partners, NIAID has directed the HVTN to utilize their experience and expertise to address the pressing need for vaccines and antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The mission of CoVPN is to conduct Phase 3 efficacy trials of vaccines and antibodies to prevent infection and COVID-19 disease, to ensure rapid and thorough evaluation that can support approval and dissemination of the interventions.

The Fred Hutch Immunotherapy Integrated Research Center (IIRC) seeks qualified candidates for its two-year Immunotherapy Physician Scientist Program. A successful applicant will be an MD or MD/PhD who is committed to pioneering major advances in medical practice through research. Applicants should be interested in an aspect of immuno-oncology relevant to the IIRC, as well as the development of therapies that modulate the immune system. Immunotherapy Physician Scientists will advance their academic careers by performing immuno-oncology research with access to state-of-the-art facilities and working with expert faculty mentors who are members in the Immunotherapy Integrated Research Center. Click here to view IIRC Faculty.

The IIRC will support the incumbent’s salary and lab expenses for two years of translational research training. However, the Physician Scientist is strongly encouraged to work with their mentor to apply for outside funding during their first year.

  • Candidates may wish to identify a mentor and potential research projects prior to arriving at Fred Hutch. The Physician Scientist will develop a research project under the guidance of the mentor. Projects may be predominantly clinical, correlative or laboratory-based, but must be focused on the development and/or improvement of cancer immunotherapy. Candidates may identify projects that require guidance from more than one mentor, as long as one mentor is a Physician Scientist faculty member of the IIRC.
  • The Physician Scientist will participate for 3-6 months in patient care on inpatient and outpatient cancer immunotherapy services at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and/or Seattle Children’s (SC) Hospital.
