Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutchs pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nations first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Womens Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
At Fred Hutch, we believe that the innovation, collaboration, and rigor that result from diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an antiracist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
The Cancer Epidemiology Research Cooperative in the Public Health Sciences Division is offering a study management position for a cervical cancer screening study under the supervision of Dr. Margaret Madeleine, Associate Member in the Cancer Epidemiology Program. Her group studies HPV-related diseases among people living with HIV, and this is one of three related studies that comprise an NCI-funded Partnership Center, Colaboracin Evita.
The Cancer Epidemiology Program is part of the Fred Hutchs 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 multidisciplinary faculty. The Fred Hutch, together with the University of Washington, Seattle Childrens and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, is an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Fred Hutch serves as the coordinating center for the Colaboracin Evita, and the successful applicant will be involved in all aspects of study management for a screening study: Estudio Oportunidad. The study is led locally by our colleagues in Santo Domingo, DR, in close collaboration with Fred Hutch and NCI investigators. This position is for 75% funding for at least 3 years. We are seeking highly motivated applicants who speak Spanish fluently and who have outstanding training and experience in conducting international epidemiological or clinical research. Applicants are expected to have excellent data management and writing skills and will be expected to support Colaboracin Evita activities at Fred Hutch and work with other partnership centers through NCI working groups. As this project focuses on cervical cancer prevention, an interest in women's health, cancer prevention and equity research brings added value.

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.
