Job Details

The Cancer Epidemiology Program in the Division of Public Health Sciences (PHS) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch) invites applications for a faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level depending on qualifications. We are looking for individuals with innovative ideas and strong methodologic skills in epidemiological research to add to the breadth of expertise of our faculty. Areas of strategic growth include but are not limited to the following: social determinants of health, geospatial and environmental science, physical activity, immunoepidemiology, molecular and genetic epidemiology, exposome assessment, integrative tumor epidemiology, and the use of electronic health records and mobile technologies. Our outstanding research environment and resources provide a strong foundation for the successful candidate to develop and conduct an independent research program.

The Cancer Epidemiology Program’s research is focused on reducing cancer incidence, progression, mortality, and sequalae through the identification of risk (or protective) factors, the elucidation of underlying biologic mechanisms, and the translation of discoveries into intervention strategies. Through population, laboratory, and clinic-based studies, the faculty aim to uncover knowledge that can inform and improve knowledge of cancer etiology, cancer risk prediction, prevention, early detection, prognostication, treatment choice, survival and overall health. The Program is home to a long-standing, top-ranked Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program-funded cancer registry for Western Washington.

The Cancer Epidemiology Program is part of the Fred Hutch’s Division of Public Health Sciences, home of an extensive portfolio of population science research, large specimen and data repositories, multiple coordinating centers overseeing national and international cross-disciplinary research initiatives, a prevention center designed for intervention research, and a large trans-disciplinary faculty. The Fred Hutch, together with the University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s is an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with active training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. An appointment with the University of Washington is possible, depending on qualifications and interests.

Fred Hutch is an independent, nonprofit organization providing adult cancer treatment and groundbreaking research focused on cancer and infectious diseases. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Washington.

With a track record of global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, cancer and HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy and COVID-19 vaccines, Fred Hutch has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. Fred Hutch operates eight clinical care sites that provide medical oncology, infusion, radiation, proton therapy and related services, and network affiliations with hospitals in five states. Together, our integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures to the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.

At Fred Hutch we value collaboration, compassion, determination, excellence, innovation, integrity, and respect. These values are grounded in and expressed through the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our mission is directly tied to the humanity, dignity and inherent value of each employee, patient, community member and supporter. Our commitment to learning across our differences and similarities makes us stronger. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an anti-racist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, anti-racism, and inclusion.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will be expected to develop a dynamic independent research program and to join in collaborative transdisciplinary and translational endeavors pertinent to our mission of reducing cancer incidence, progression, mortality, and sequelae. Applicants should have a doctoral (PhD or MD with MPH/MS) degree or equivalent training in cancer epidemiology (or a related discipline) and relevant research experience.

Application Instructions

Interested individuals should submit their application, including a curriculum vitae, a statement describing current research interests and future research plans, a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement, and the names and contact information of three references.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For more information on Fred Hutch faculty and program activities, please visit our website: http://www.fredhutch.org/

Company

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.

At Fred Hutch, our interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Our researchers, including three Nobel laureates, bring a relentless pursuit of, and passion for, health knowledge and hope to their work and the world. Together, our researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, when cure rates are highest; developing effective treatments with fewer side effects; and learning how to prevent cancers from growing in the first place.

Our groundbreaking discoveries began in the 1970s with Dr. E. Donnall Thomas’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation, which led to him receiving the 1990 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. Since then, Hutch researchers have made a number of breakthroughs, including developing immunotherapies that use the immune system to defeat cancer and advancing the understanding of human biology. 

Admittedly, the eradication of cancer and other life-threatening diseases is an ambitious goal, one that demands tenacity, scientific excellence, collaboration and breakthrough creativity. To accomplish this, Fred Hutch attracts some of the world's greatest minds.

Our roster of internationally acclaimed scientists includes a MacArthur fellow, members of the National Academy of Sciences, members of the Institute of Medicine, members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and current and former Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators.

Fred Hutch understands that disease research means more than searching for new treatments. We are home to the country's largest and oldest cancer prevention program, which has made key contributions to understanding how diet, exercise and other factors reduce the risk of acquiring the disease.

To accelerate our progress, we are part of the Fred Hutch / University of Washington Cancer Consortium. This research and clinical collaboration between the Hutch, the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance enables our researchers to leverage each institution’s strengths and develop premier research programs across many types of disease. The Consortium is among 49 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers nationwide.
