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 Bioinformatics Analyst I-II will work under the supervision of a senior scientist in the Clinical Research Division on translational genomics research projects as well as contributing to the Fred Hutch community at large through documentation and cross-divisional projects supporting bioinformatics. This position will involve participating in multiple collaborations on translational research projects involving a range of genomic data types. The candidate will contribute their bioinformatics expertise along with assisting in communication of project scope and results through the creation of interactive data visualizations and dashboards. Additionally, the candidate will have direct involvement in ongoing studies of intratumoral heterogeneity in cancer generally and in leukemia specifically that involve technique development rather than application of existing approaches.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
