Responsibilities

The Fred Hutch has established a broad international footprint to enable the conduct of innovative basic and clinical research in cancer, and particularly in infectious disease-related cancers.  In May 2015, the Fred Hutch and the Uganda Cancer Institute (UCI) opened the world-class UCI-Fred Hutch Cancer Centre in Kampala, Uganda. This 25,000 square-foot facility supports research, outpatient care and training, as well as clinical laboratory and specialized laboratories for molecular diagnostics, biorepository, histopathology and immunology.  This first comprehensive cancer center holds promise for accelerating groundbreaking scientific cancer and infectious disease research.  Additional opportunities for global oncology pathogen-associated research are afforded with in-country partners at our state-of-the-art 10,000 square-foot freestanding immunology laboratory in Cape Town, South Africa.  Through our long-term China collaborative research initiative, the FH has joint research and training partnerships for clinical and epidemiologic studies linked to pathogen-associated and environmentally-linked cancer development.

Qualifications

Applicants must have an MD with or without a PhD (or foreign equivalent) and board certification in hematology/oncology is preferred. Expertise in cancer biology and pathogen-mediated cancers are also desirable characteristics.  Selection criteria include excellence in clinical care, scholarship, creativity in research, success in developing and advancing collaborations, and demonstrated leadership in the profession. Ideal candidates will have experience conducting research in international settings.   All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

 

The Deputy Head and Associate Member will be based in Seattle, Washington, at Fred Hutch in VIDD and have opportunities for cross-divisional appointments based on research expertise.  Fred Hutch offers a vibrant intellectual environment within a beautiful, lakeside campus in Seattle’s South Lake Union biotech hub.
