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. Careers Start Here.
The laboratories of Dr. Gavin Ha and Dr. Peter Nelson have a joint postdoctoral research position open in the Computational Biology Program of the Public Health Sciences and Human Biology Divisions. We are seeking a highly motivated individual who is interested in developing and implementing innovative computational and analytical approaches to study the genetics and epigenetics of prostate cancer. Candidates who are excited about large/complex ‘omics’ data analysis of cancer genomes, computational methods development, and translating computational techniques into the clinic are encouraged to apply. The position has a competitive salary with great benefits.
Dr. Nelson is one of the world’s leading experts in prostate cancer research. He is the Director of the Prostate Cancer Research Program at Fred Hutch and Principal Investigator of the Pacific Northwest Prostate Cancer SPORE. Dr. Ha is a Prostate Cancer Foundation Young Investigator, V Foundation Scholar, and holds an NCI Transition Career Development Award. His laboratory develops computational approaches to study cancer genomes from tumors and liquid biopsies, such as circulating tumor DNA.
