Faculty Member, Pathogen Associated Malignancies Integrated Research Center (PAM IRC)
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center invites applications to fill a full-time laboratory-based faculty position. Located in the vibrant South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle, Washington—Fred Hutch is home to three Nobel laureates, over 300 faculty, and 2400 staff. Our interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Situated at Fred Hutch, the Pathogen Associated Malignancies Integrated Research Center (PAM-IRC) is an interdisciplinary group of over 70 members from the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s, Fred Hutch, and other local research institutes. The program objectives are to (1) understand basic mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions of PAMs to identify mechanisms of cancer induction and exploit vulnerabilities (2) support translational studies of PAMs to inform the design of better diagnostic, and/or therapeutic strategies (3) research and implement prevention strategies for PAMs. Currently PAM-IRC researchers focus on Human Papilloma Virus, Merkel Cell Carcinoma, Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV), Epstein-Barr Virus and EBV-related cancers, liver cancer, as well as the role that specific microbes play in the etiology of cancers. Additionally, the program seeks to expand research in a wide range of pathogen-associated malignancies, including Hepatitis viruses.
Applicants from PhD, MD/PhD, or MD scientists will be considered at any rank. Successful candidates will align with the objectives of the PAM-IRC and conduct innovative research on biological mechanisms of pathogenesis, host immune responses, and development of vaccines and therapies for pathogen-associated cancers.
The successful candidate will enter a dynamic, collaborative research environment, working across Fred Hutch’s many diverse Divisions including Human Biology, Basic Sciences, Clinical Research, Public Health Sciences, and Vaccine and Infectious Diseases. Opportunities exist for University of Washington affiliate appointments, participation in joint UW-Fred Hutch graduate student programs, collaboration with the Immunotherapy Integrated Research Center and with clinicians practicing at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance—one of the leading cancer treatment centers in the United States.
