    Hope. Care. Cure. These three simple words capture what we do at Seattle Children’s –- to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

    Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.

     

    In 2019, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 27th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.

     

    As a Magnet designated institution, and classified among America’s best large employers by Forbes, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it’s delivering frontline care to our patients in a kind and caring manner, practicing the highest standards of quality and safety, or being relentlessly curious as we work towards eradicating childhood diseases, these values are the fabric of our culture and community. The future starts here.

    Overview

    Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Flow Cytometry Department is actively recruiting for a full-time licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Med Tech) to join our dynamic nine member team. Our daily work consists of 22 tests performed on the Flow Cytometers for malignancy and immunology, immunofluorescent slide staining/interpretation, and antigen/mitogen leukocyte stimulation assays. One of the exciting aspects of our work is our alignment with Seattle Children’s CAR-T Immunotherapy program. We follow children pre and post their CAR-T-Cell infusions via flow cytometry. In addition to our clinical work we are actively working on research and development directed by our in laboratory PhD. We are currently adding an assay to enumerate the CAR-T-Cells themselves post infusion and are developing an assay for T-cell Immunophenotyping.
