About the Department

Located in Seattle, Washington, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a world-renowned research institution.  The Biostatistics and Biomathematics Program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Division of Public Health Sciences is recruiting a faculty member in statistical genetics at the Assistant Member level, titles that correspond to Assistant professor at a university.  The appointee will be able to interact with an unusually strong group of faculty in statistical genomics and have the opportunity to collaborate with top research in the field.


We are seeking a candidate who will establish a dynamic research program consisting of independent and collaborative research projects pertinent to the mission of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  We are looking for researchers with an interest in population genetics, statistical methods for genetic association studies, high-throughput technologies, and other areas in statistical genetics or genomics.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree in statistics, biostatistics, statistical genetics or another quantitative area with a strong record of, or high potential for, independent methodological research and scientific collaboration.  We are looking for a candidate with strong communication and collaboration skills.

An affiliate appointment at the Assistant Professor level in a relevant department at the University of Washington may be possible, depending on mutual interest and involvement with university activities.
