Responsibilities






The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has a 2 year postdoctoral position available through the Cancer Prevention Department. The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Polly Newcomb within the Division of Public Health Sciences. Dr. Newcomb is a leading epidemiologist in the fields of cancer genetics, etiology, screening, and survival. Her research program investigates the causes, treatments, and outcomes of colon cancer using large, population-based studies, clinical trials, and collaboration with local medical centers. Most recently, she has focused on germline and genetics of colorectal neoplasms in sporadic and familial disease in relation to risk and clinical outcomes. The postdoctoral fellow will have access to epidemiologic, genetic (including germline GWAS) and molecular data, large cancer cohort and clinical trial resources, biospecimens, and several other consortium data, available for cutting-edge hypothesis testing and team collaborations.  There are opportunities to work on existing projects and to develop new projects addressing relevant research topics. Responsibilities include assisting with genetic and epidemiologic studies, including data collection, directing laboratory analyses, developing collaborations with other researchers, applying new statistical methods under the guidance of senior biostatisticians and epidemiologists, preparing manuscripts, and developing grant proposals.

 

Fred Hutch provides a highly interactive and supportive environment for junior investigators to grow and develop their future career; it consistently ranks in the top 20 best places to work for postdocs, as surveyed by The Scientist.
