Open Rank Faculty Position in Cancer Survivorship

About the Role

Description
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch) is recruiting a full-time faculty member at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level to join Fred Hutch’s Cancer Survivorship Program and help grow its research portfolio. The overall mission of the interdisciplinary Survivorship Program is to enhance the equitable care of cancer survivors by 1) rigorous research with national and international impact, 2) direct provision of clinical care, and 3) education and outreach. Survivorship focuses on the health and well-being of a person with cancer from the time of diagnosis until the end of life. This includes the physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial effects of cancer that begin at diagnosis and continue through treatment and beyond.

Candidates with PhD, MD, or MD/PhD, or equivalent are encouraged to apply – this includes but is not limited to those with training in medical or radiation or surgical oncology, psychology, epidemiology, exercise physiology, nutrition science, health services, dissemination and implementation science, and other related disciplines. Candidates should have experience commensurate with rank. The position is on the faculty/physician scientist (i.e., primarily research) track. However, candidates who wish to maintain a clinical practice (i.e., 20-30% time) are encouraged to apply and can be integrated into Fred Hutch’s Survivorship, Oncology, or Supportive Care clinics at Fred Hutch based on the best fit.

Research areas of interest include but are not limited to: lifestyle or other interventions to mitigate late (medical or psychosocial) effects, biobehavioral research, cardio-oncology, health services and care delivery, molecular or genetic epidemiology of late effects, or mechanistic studies of key adverse events. We seek candidates with a research interest in adult cancer survivorship (young adults to geriatrics). Of note, this recruitment is not targeting candidates who focus exclusively on survivors of childhood or adolescent cancers as those areas are well represented in our current faculty. The successful candidate will develop/continue an independent research program within our collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.

Fred Hutch is an independent, nonprofit organization providing adult cancer treatment and groundbreaking research focused on cancer and infectious diseases. Based in Seattle, Fred Hutch is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Washington.

With a track record of global leadership in bone marrow transplantation, HIV/AIDS prevention, immunotherapy and COVID-19 vaccines, Fred Hutch has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading cancer, infectious disease and biomedical research centers. Fred Hutch operates eight clinical care sites that provide medical oncology, infusion, radiation, proton therapy and related services, and network affiliations with hospitals in five states. Together, our fully integrated research and clinical care teams seek to discover new cures to the world’s deadliest diseases and make life beyond cancer a reality.

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.

Faculty will join a supportive and highly collaborative environment that is committed to ensuring the development and success of strong research and mentoring programs. Successful candidates will be invited to join one or more of these two scientific divisions: Clinical Research or Public Health Sciences. There will be additional opportunities for collaboration with faculty in other divisions and at affiliated institutions. Fred Hutch, together with the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital, is an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center with active training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. In addition, Fred Hutch has outstanding facilities and cutting-edge shared resources to support faculty, including those that support exercise and nutritional interventions. Fred Hutch is a modern campus located next to Lake Union in Seattle, Washington, and is close to other non-profit research institutes and the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital.
