The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.

The Patient Navigator offers individualized assistance to patients, families and caregivers to help overcome health system barriers and facilitate timely access to qualified medical and psychosocial care. Patient navigators serve as a critical link to connect our diverse patient population to local and national resources to meet basic life needs while undergoing cancer treatment. These government and privately funded sources of support (medical transportation, housing, financial concerns, insurance coverage, medication co-pays), are crucial to enabling patients to engage in treatment from the point of diagnosis and throughout the cancer continuum. Furthermore, our patient navigators provide essential cultural brokering and emotional support that also enables our patients to receive the needed medical and holistic care they need.

Responsibilities

  • Assess barriers to care and involving patients/families in creating potential solutions to problems, considering patient's physical and emotional status, reading level, health literacy, culture, language, and amount of information desired
  • Identify and arrange internal and/or external resources to meet patient needs. Continually expand knowledge of community and other resources, including immigration, DHSH, and financial resources
  • Educate patients and caregivers on the multi-disciplinary nature of cancer treatment, the roles of team members, and what to expect from the health care system
  • Empower patients by promoting self-management skills and providing information about resources and referrals
  • Encourage active communication between patients/families and health care providers to help optimize patient outcomes
  • Assess patients' capacity to self-advocate. Help patients optimize time with their treatment team by prioritizing questions, clarifying information, etc.
  • Contribute to patient navigation program development, implementation, and evaluation; follow through on special projects and assigned tasks as requested by supervisor
  • Invest and contribute to an evolving model of patient navigation
  • Demonstrating empathy and providing information and support within scope of practice; refer to licensed clinicians as appropriate
  • Adhering to organizational policies and procedures to ensure compliance with HIPAA, privacy, safety, and other regulations; document care provided in accordance with SCCA policies and procedures

Two Post-Doctoral Research Fellow positions are immediately available with Dr. Anthony Rongvaux, Ph.D. at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Rongvaux Lab uses state of the art humanized murine models to studies innate immune responses specific to the human species. This research has applications in both cancer and infectious disease modalities, and ranges from fundamental research to the development of novel drugs and immunotherapies. 

Responsibilities

Innate immunity and cancer 
Most cancer deaths happen because the cancer has spread to distant sites throughout a patient’s body—a phenomenon called metastasis. Why does metastasis occur, and how can we stop it to save lives? 
  
It has been known for over three decades that a high density of macrophages in the tumor microenvironment correlates with metastatic progression and poor patient survival. However, the mechanisms by which macrophages support cancer remain incompletely understood. Our lab has developed unique humanized murine models for immuno-oncology studies. With these models, we have identified physiologically relevant macrophage populations involved in tumor support. We are currently studying the fundamental biology of these macrophages, and developing new therapeutic agents to target them. 
  
Innate immunity to HIV infection 
Over 35 million people are living with HIV worldwide. About 40% of them don’t have access to antiretroviral therapies, resulting in over half a million deaths annually. 
  
Acute HIV infection induces a rapid inflammatory response, characterized by the production of large amounts of cytokines. However, this immune response is ineffective at controlling the virus. As a consequence, the virus can establish chronic infection and, if not treated, progress to a lethal disease. Understanding why the natural immune response to HIV infection does not confer protection, could help us design more effective vaccine strategies. 
  
Using state of the art humanized murine models, single-cell RNA sequencing and genome editing, the postdoctoral fellows will study the mechanisms by which the immune system detects, and responds to transformed or infected cells. Understanding how the immune response fails to restore homeostasis is a prerequisite to design novel therapeutic or vaccine strategies. 

Qualifications

  • Applicants will have a recent PhD in Immunology, Immuno-oncology, Cellular & Molecular Biology or a closely related field 
  • The ideal candidate will have a research background in immunology with robust skills in molecular and cellular biology, and animal studies. Desirable skills include bioinformatics analysis, scientific writing and presentations 
  • Strong interest in immunological applications in cancer and/or HIV infection. 
  • To be successful in this position, the post-doctoral research fellow must be highly motivated with a track record of productive research, exemplified by at least one first author publication(s) and presentations, and willing to work in a highly collaborative, fast paced, collaborative and dynamic environment. These positions are suited to someone who enjoys mastering new skills, multitasking and working in a multiple team environment
