Position Description

The Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division (VIDD) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) is recruiting a full-time faculty member at the Assistant Member or Associate Member level in the Physician/Scientist pathway. The individual will be expected to develop his or her own independent laboratory research program focused on microbial communities and their impact on health and disease. Candidates must demonstrate a prior record of laboratory or clinical research work in the microbiome, a track record of high quality peer-reviewed publications in the microbiome research area, as well as evidence of competitive funding potential in independent research.  This will be a full-time faculty position based at the Fred Hutch with the possibility of future joint appointment at the University of Washington.



We offer a highly collaborative and diverse research environment, generous start-up, modern laboratory space and state-of-the-art core facilities.  Our program supports research activities that span the entire spectrum from basic to clinical biomedical research.

The Fred Hutch offers a vibrant intellectual environment within a beautiful lakeside campus in Seattle’s South Lake Union biotech hub.  The Fred Hutch campus contains five major research buildings along with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and is in close proximity to major research partners such as the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Center for Infectious Disease Research Institute (formerly Seattle Biomedical Research Institute), and the Infectious Disease Research Institute.  VIDD integrates clinical care, computational methods, basic and translational research to reduce the global burden of infectious diseases.



Applicants must have an MD, PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent, expertise in research related to the human microbiome, and a desire to apply this knowledge to advance the Fred Hutch mission of treating and preventing infectious diseases and cancer.
