Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch) invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor. Faculty rank will depend on qualifications and experience. We seek candidates with biological or clinical research programs that create or analyze large datasets, develop new computational methodologies or high-throughput technologies, or combine techniques in innovative ways. Some example research areas include, but are not limited to, machine learning and artificial intelligence, data-intensive cancer biology, and high-throughput technology development, but we are broadly interested in all data-enabled research programs.

Fred Hutch is an independent, nonprofit organization providing adult cancer treatment and groundbreaking research focused on cancer and infectious diseases. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Washington.

With a track record of global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy and COVID-19 vaccines, Fred Hutch has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. Fred Hutch operates eight clinical care sites that provide medical oncology, infusion, radiation, proton therapy and related services, and network affiliations with hospitals in five states. Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures to the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.

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.

Fred Hutch is a world-renowned research institution with diverse faculty research programs that span fundamental biological research, disease-focused and clinical research, and population sciences. Fred Hutch has five Scientific Divisions: Basic Sciences, Human Biology, Clinical Research, Vaccine and Infectious Disease, Public Health Sciences. Fred Hutch is investing heavily in data science through initiatives such as the Translational Data Science Integrated Research Center (TDS IRC) and Data Science Lab (DaSL), and you could be part of this community.

The faculty recruit will join the Translational Data Science Integrated Research Center (TDS IRC) and receive an appointment in the Fred Hutch Scientific Division that is best suited to support the candidate's research program. The TDS IRC is a cross-divisional, collaborative initiative to leverage recent advances and spur future innovation in large-scale biological experiments, computational methods, and infrastructure. The TDS IRC promotes collaborative approaches to data science research across all five Scientific Divisions.
