Assistant/Associate Member Faculty Position in Prostate Cancer Research – Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center invites applications from scientists working in the area of prostate cancer research. Applicants will be considered at the rank of Assistant or Associate Faculty member, and we are seeking individuals who share our goals to advance an understanding of the biological basis of prostate cancer, and to translate findings to the clinic. This position will primarily support an office-based ‘dry-lab’ faculty member and research team, though limited ‘wet-lab’ space and attendant resources will be available. We will consider PhD, MD/PhD, or MD scientists working in areas that include, but are not limited to: the microenvironment, metastasis, systems biology, computational biology, the biology of therapeutic response/resistance, genetics/genomics, and population science domains involving etiology, environmental and host risk, and cancer prevention.

The successful candidate will enter a vibrant and dynamic research environment with opportunities to collaborate with basic and clinical researchers across diverse disciplines. The Prostate Cancer Program is one of 8 designated research programs in the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium and is anchored by the NCI Pacific Northwest Prostate Cancer Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE).

Opportunities exist for joint and/or affiliate appointment in the Fred Hutch Divisions of Human Biology, Clinical Research, Basic Sciences, Public Health Sciences, or Vaccine and Infectious Disease, as well as Departments at the University of Washington, depending on mutual interests. Applicants will also be eligible for membership in the Fred Hutch-based Seattle Translational Tumor Research (STTR) program, a multidisciplinary consortium of more than 500 faculty from Fred Hutch, the University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s, who work collaboratively on all aspects of solid tumor basic, translational, and clinical research.

For consideration, applicants need to have a PhD, MD/PhD, or MD or other doctorate degree.

We seek faculty members who bring new ways of seeing the world and solving problems.
