Fred Hutch Dr. Eddie Mendez Post-Doctoral Research Symposium

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Category: Internships
Seattle, WA, US
Job ID: 69916

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. 




Fred Hutch is seeking applications for the 2nd Annual Dr. Eddie Mendez Scholar Award which recognizes outstanding postdoctoral fellows from any discipline who are conducting research related to cancer, HIV, or other infectious diseases. The award was created to recognize Dr. Méndez’s commitment to cancer research and to supporting early-career underrepresented minority scientists and scientists with disabilities.

Awardees will arrive on May 22, 2020 and will participate in activities on campus while exploring Seattle. They will then present at a scientific symposium on May 23,2020  honoring Dr. Eddie Mendez and will have the opportunity to visit Fred Hutch and meet with faculty members.

This award recognizes the achievements of 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. All expenses related to travel and accommodations will be provided by Fred Hutch.

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: Thursday, May 22, 2020

Symposium: Friday, May 23, 2020

Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.

The Science Education Partnership (SEP) is a program for Washington state science teachers sponsored by Fred Hutch. Since its inception in 1991, 550 science teachers from across Washington state have participated, and use our resources with over 15,000 students annually. Through professional development workshops and a science mentor program, teachers learn molecular biology techniques and also have the opportunity to participate in an introductory laboratory research experience. A large component of our work is SEP's Kit Loan Program, in which, teachers partnered with SEP can borrow biotechnology supplies and equipment (kits) to use in their classroom. We provide over 70 kits on 18 different topics, including gel electrophoresis and bacterial transformation. The SEP Intern would help support the Kit Loan Program by preparing kits and assisting with tracking kit usage, thereby learning valuable skills to pursue a career in science education or science laboratory research.

  • Unpacking and inventorying items in returned kits
  • Refurbishing kits and equipment
  • Repacking kits for use in classroom
  • Preparing reagents and maintain backup stocks
