Fred Hutch Dr. Eddie Mendez Post-Doctoral Research Symposium

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Category: Internships
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 80898

At the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (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 are committed to increasing our awareness and improving our practices so that we are an organization known as a center of diversity and inclusion excellence.  As a part of this effort, we are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in scientific research and supporting the career development of the next generation of scientists. 

 

Overview:

Fred Hutch is seeking applications for the 3rd Annual Dr. Eddie Méndez Scholar Award which recognizes outstanding postdoctoral fellows from any discipline who are conducting cancer, infectious disease, or basic science research.

This award was created to recognize Dr. Méndez’s commitment to cancer research and to supporting early-career underrepresented minority scientists and scientists with disabilities. Individuals who are eligible for this award are current post-doctoral fellows from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science based on the NIH definition, which includes individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders), individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. A selection committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty will select up to six awardees. A honorarium and all expenses related to travel and accommodations will be provided by Fred Hutch.

Awardees will present at a scientific symposium honoring Dr. Eddie Méndez and have the opportunity to meet with Fred Hutch faculty and senior leaders. Our hope is to hold this event in person on the Fred Hutch campus in Seattle sometime between May-October 2021, but given the current uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic we are at this time unable to provide a firm date for the symposium or determine whether the format will be in person or virtual.

Dr. Mendez, who died of cancer in 2018, specialized in treating head-and-neck cancer, an often disfiguring and debilitating disease. It was his mission to save lives and improve the well-being of cancer patients, whether through spearheading minimally invasive robotic surgery for these tumors (he was the first in Washington state to perform such surgery), or through tirelessly developing new treatments in his laboratory at Fred Hutch. 

 

 

Dates and Location:

Arrival: Between May - October 2021 (Additional Information to Follow). *Contingent on public health recommendations. If event is virtual, a modified symposium will be adapted.

Where: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA 

Application Deadline: March 1st, 2021
