The Hutchinson Centre Research Institute of South Africa (HCRISA), a non-profit subsidiary of U.S.-based Fred Hutch, was incorporated in March 2012. HCRISA employs South Africa-based staff carrying out the programs of Fred Hutch and the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). HCRISA has two locations in South Africa: the Cape Town HVTN Immunology Laboratory (CHIL) and a smaller group located in Johannesburg that is utilized by a team frequently traveling to offsite clinics.
HCRISA is looking to hire a Human Resources Practitioner to provide general human resources support to a small dynamic and physically dispersed organization that is rapidly growing. Expertise in multiple HR areas and access to a network of HR professionals is required. This position will be based in Cape Town at CHIL with travel to Johannesburg up to 2-3 times per month. The Practitioner will report directly to the Laboratory Director in Cape Town and liaise closely with the Seattle-based HR team and Program staff.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before ...that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
