Junior faculty position, FHCRC
October 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
The Division of Human Biology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is recruiting for a junior faculty member. The Division of Human Biology is the most interdisciplinary of the five Divisions at the Hutchinson Center, with a mission to foster and support laboratory-based and computational research at the interface of basic, clinical and population sciences. The research interests of current faculty span a broad range of topics with the general theme of understanding the processes of human diseases and diverse aspects of human biology. An important goal for the Center is to broaden our expertise in solid tumor research and Human Biology will be home to that expansion. We are now seeking to recruit an individual who is doing innovative translational research on solid tumors. Areas of interest include cancer biology, human genetics and computational biology as they relate to cancer.
We are particularly interested in candidates who have the potential to evolve an interdisciplinary, collaborative aspect to their work. In that regard, the resources for such collaboration with basic, clinical and population scientists at the Hutchinson Center, the University of Washington and the broader Seattle research community are tremendous. The Hutchinson Center also has a very active graduate program and attracts a large number of highly qualified postdoctoral fellows.
The search committee is chaired by Peter Nelson and Denise Galloway. The online application is at http://www.fhcrc.org/hbfacsearch. The website also includes links to sites that provide more information about the Human Biology Division, graduate programs and shared resource facilities, as well as general information about the Center.
Deadline October 31.
