Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Geospatial Epidemiology
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 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, a SEER cancer registry, a prevention center designed for intervention research, and a large multidisciplinary faculty. The Fred Hutch, together with the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s, and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, is an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with active training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
The Cancer Epidemiology Program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is offering a post-doctoral fellowship opportunity in the area of geospatial analysis under the supervision of Dr. Margaret Madeleine, Associate Member in the Cancer Epidemiology Program. The fellowship will focus on extensive geospatial analyses of HPV vaccine data. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to pursue independent research and publications in addition to the main project for this fellowship, in ongoing research areas here, such as HPV-attributable cancer epidemiology, HPV vaccine immunoepidemiology, and immunogenetics of HPV-related cancers. Opportunities to conduct geospatial research with other faculty members at the Fred Hutch in related areas, such as colorectal cancer screening or environmental exposure assessment may also be available.
We are seeking highly-motivated applicants (PhD/ScD in Epidemiology, Biostatistics, or related field) with outstanding training and experience in epidemiological methods and geospatial measures. While HPV-related diseases are the main focus of our group, individuals with interests in related conditions and risk factors with an emphasis on geospatial measures are welcomed to apply. Applicants are expected to have excellent writing skills and will be expected to conceive and execute creative new uses of study data. We also encourage and support attendance at scientific conferences, and participation in study leadership meetings with collaborating research groups.
