The Fred Hutch Lung SPORE invites applications for an open full-time faculty position at the assistant, associate or full professor level on the Physician/Scientist pathway within the Clinical Research Division (CRD) of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch). We seek a laboratory-based scientist to conduct innovative, independent, and collaborative basic or translational research focused on lung cancer.
For consideration, the candidate must hold a PhD or MD (or foreign equivalent). Although most competitive applicants will have an established independently funded laboratory-based research program in lung cancer science, the committee will also consider applications at the assistant professor level. Pertinent research areas include (but are not limited to) molecular and genetic determinants of lung cancer initiation and progression, therapeutic resistance to targeted- and immune based therapies, tumor-initiating lung epithelial cell populations, and lung cancer early detection.
The Fred Hutch, home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. 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. In addition, Fred Hutch has outstanding facilities and cutting-edge shared resources to support faculty success. Collaborative opportunities exist for joint and/or affiliate appointments in the Fred Hutch Divisions of Public Health Sciences, Human Biology, Basic Sciences, or Vaccine and Infectious Disease, as well as the University of Washington, depending upon candidate interest and qualifications.
At 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 seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
Anticipated start date would be July 1, 2021.
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a concise research statement, a diversity statement describing your past contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion and your future plans for continuing these efforts (two pages or less), and list of references, along with a letter of application addressed to Dr. McGarry Houghton. All applications received by December 1, 2020 will receive full consideration.

About Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
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.
