Job Description:




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.

The Laboratory Program is responsible for carrying out the scientific agenda of the HVTN in determining by laboratory based studies which vaccine regimens should be advanced for efficacy trials and show promise for licensure. This effort includes leading a number of working groups, committees, specimen repository oversight, assay performance and quality assurance.
