Providence is calling a Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Medical Research (1.0 FTE, Days) to Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland, OR.
The Earle A. Chiles Research Institute at Providence Cancer Institute is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow for a 3-year term. The fellowship is intended to provide advanced research training in the field of immuno-oncology with a specific emphasis on T cell-based immunotherapy. Ideal for recent PhD or MD/PhD graduates who have had training in T cell biology and want to translate their knowledge into preclinical cancer models and/or with patient samples. Formal training in immune oncology is not necessary, but previous training in immunology would be helpful.
As the third largest not-for-profit health system in the United States, we are committed to providing for the needs of our communities – especially for those who are poor and vulnerable – across Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
Our system includes more than 82,000 caregivers (all employees) serving in a diverse range of ministries from birth to end of life, including acute care, physician clinics, long-term and assisted living, palliative and hospice care, home health, supportive housing and education.
We operate 34 hospitals, 600 physician clinics, 22 long-term care facilities, 19 hospice and home health programs and 693 supportive housing units in 14 locations. Our health plan serves our caregivers and other large employer groups covering 513,000 members.
On any given day, we care for more than 1,200 people in our long-term care settings, more than 4,000 in our hospitals and more than 15,000 in our clinic settings. Daily, we serve more than 7,000 people in our many home health and palliative care programs and almost 800 in supportive housing. We touch more than five times as many lives in non-acute settings as we do in the traditional hospital setting.
When the Sisters arrived in the Pacific Northwest in 1856, they came to answer a call for help from a new pioneer community. What they found were many communities in need of service, and so with dedication to the Mission and collaboration with like-minded partners, their ministry grew to what is now a five-state health system.
Providence Health & Services continues a tradition of caring that the Sisters of Providence began more than 158 years ago. The cornerstone of our Mission is to provide compassionate care that is accessible for all – especially those who are poor and vulnerable.
Our benefits help us care for our employees and their families by supporting their wellness and providing tools that promote financial security and professional growth.*
We are deeply honored that Providence facilities have been distinguished with national awards and certifications. At Providence Health & Services, our dedication to excellence is evident in the service our people demonstrate every day. Here, you’ll find an environment built on the core values of respect, compassion, justice, excellence and stewardship. They are at the heart of everything we do...and others have noticed.
