Located in the vibrant South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle, Washington—Fred Hutch is home to three Nobel laureates, over 300 faculty, and 2400 staff. Our interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other life-threatening diseases.

We are recruiting a virology, microbiology, or immunology faculty member wishing to establish an independent lab working on a virus or bacteria that is associated with cancer. Applicants from PhD, MD/PhD, or MD scientists will be considered at any rank. Successful candidates will align with the objectives described below.

The Pathogen Associated Malignancies Integrated Research Center faculty are dedicated to accelerating innovation through interdisciplinary science through these objectives:
