The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center invites applications from scientists working in the area of breast cancer research to lead a translational research program. Applicants will be considered at the rank of Associate or Full Faculty member, and we are seeking individuals who share our goals to advance an understanding of the biological basis of breast cancer, and to translate findings to the clinic.
We will consider PhD, MD/PhD, or MD scientists working in areas that include, but are not limited to: steroid receptors, signaling pathways, microenvironment, metastasis, systems biology, computational biology, and the biology of therapeutic response/resistance, genetics/genomics. A track record of relevant publication and funding commensurate with appointment level is highly desirable. Physician-scientists in any relevant medical discipline are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will enter a vibrant and dynamic research environment with opportunities to collaborate with basic and clinical researchers across diverse disciplines. The Breast and Ovary Cancer Program is one of 8 designated research programs in the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium.
