Faculty Position, Oncology (Lung Cancer SPORE)
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch) Lung SPORE is recruiting a full-time faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to join the Fred Hutch Lung Program team of investigators and an appropriate Scientific Division: Basic Research; Clinical Research; Human Biology; Public Health Sciences; or Vaccine & Infectious Disease. We seek a laboratory-based scientist to conduct innovative, independent, and collaborative basic and/or translational research focused on lung cancer. This position will be a full-time, multi-year appointment.
For consideration, the candidate must hold a PhD or MD (or foreign equivalent). Competitive candidates will have expertise in a fundamental aspect of lung cancer science and likely be engaged in research addressing the molecular and genetic determinants of lung cancer initiation and progression, therapeutic resistance to targeted- and immune-based therapies, tumor-initiating lung epithelial cell populations, or lung cancer early detection. Candidates must demonstrate a track record of peer reviewed publications in the field of lung cancer science.
The successful candidate will enter a dynamic research environment as a member of the Fred Hutch Lung Program investigative team, will benefit from the infrastructure and resources available through the Fred Hutch Lung SPORE, and will have opportunities to collaborate with scientists across a wide array of disciplines. Collaborative opportunities are enhanced via joint and/or affiliate appointments at the University of Washington, depending upon mutual interests.
