The Cancer Epidemiology Program in the Division of Public Health Sciences at the 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 whose research interests are focused on advancing knowledge of the etiology of cancer or identifying determinants of outcomes following cancer diagnosis, including prognosis and treatment response/toxicity. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, molecular and genetic epidemiology; pharmacoepidemiology; electronic health records, geospatial measures, mobile technology, and other novel biomedical data sources; social determinants; and survivorship.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop a dynamic independent research program and to 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.
The Cancer Epidemiology Program is part of the Fred Hutch’s Division of Public Health Sciences, home of an extensive portfolio of population science research, large specimen and data repositories, a SEER cancer registry, a prevention center designed for intervention research, and a large multidisciplinary faculty. The 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. An affiliation with the University of Washington is possible, depending on qualifications and interests.
Interested individuals should submit their application, including CV, a statement describing current research interests and future research plans, and the names and contact information of four references. Fred Hutch is using Interfolio as the application portal for this position. Apply at the following link https://apply.interfolio.com/48564.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is an equal opportunity employer, committed to workforce diversity. We strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans.
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.
