The Division of Public Health Sciences at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center invites applications for a faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Member (equivalent to Assistant or Associate Professor) level depending on qualifications. We seek candidates who share our goals to advance an understanding of the etiology of cancer and survivorship. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to molecular and genetic epidemiology, integrated tumor epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology; use of electronic health records, mobile technology, and other novel biomedical data sources.
The successful candidate will develop a dynamic independent research program and will join in collaborative multidisciplinary and translational endeavors pertinent to our mission of reducing cancer incidence, progression, and sequelae through the identification of risk determinants and translation of discoveries into preventive strategies. Applicants should have a doctoral (PhD or MD with MPH/MS) degree or equivalent training in cancer epidemiology (or a related discipline) and relevant research experience.
Fred Hutch’s Division of Public Health Sciences is home to an extensive portfolio of population sciences research, large biospecimen and data repositories, a SEER cancer registry, a prevention center designed for intervention research, and a large multidisciplinary faculty. Fred Hutch, together with the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s, and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, is an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with active training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Opportunities exist for joint and/or affiliate appointment in Fred Hutch’s Divisions of Clinical Research, Human Biology, Basic Sciences, or Vaccine and Infectious Disease, as well the University of Washington, depending on mutual interest.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
