Updated: about 2 months ago
Location: Seattle, WASHINGTON

Position Description:

The Fred Hutch Lung SPORE invites applications for an open full-time faculty position at the assistant, associate or full professor level on the Physician/Scientist pathway within the Clinical Research Division (CRD) of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch). We seek a laboratory-based scientist to conduct innovative, independent, and collaborative basic or translational research focused on lung cancer.


Qualifications:

For consideration, the candidate must hold a PhD or MD (or foreign equivalent). Although most competitive applicants will have an established independently funded laboratory-based research program in lung cancer science, the committee will also consider applications at the assistant professor level. Pertinent research areas include (but are not limited to) molecular and genetic determinants of lung cancer initiation and progression, therapeutic resistance to targeted- and immune based therapies, tumor-initiating lung epithelial cell populations, and lung cancer early detection.

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. 

Anticipated start date would be July 1, 2021.


To Apply:

Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a concise research statement, a diversity statement describing your past contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion and your future plans for continuing these efforts (two pages or less), and list of references, along with a letter of application addressed to Dr. McGarry Houghton.
