    As one of the nation's top five pediatric research centers, Seattle Children's Research Institute is dedicated to providing hope, care, and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

     

    Our investigators are involved in hundreds of projects that cover every phase of research, from studying how diseases work to improving investigational therapies. They have pioneered groundbreaking cystic fibrosis treatments and cutting-edge cancer therapies that help a child's immune system defeat cancer, and made other major contributions to pediatric medicine. 

     

    Researchers work in close collaboration with one another, their colleagues at partner institutions including the University of Washington and Fred Hutch and our healthcare providers at Seattle Children's Hospital, one of U.S. News & World Report’s top children's hospitals. This collaboration is one of our key strengths, allowing our faculty to draw on a variety of disciplines and techniques as they pursue solutions to some of medicine's most complex problems.

     

    We are committed to not only treating disease but to eliminating it. Help us achieve our vision of being a worldwide leader in pediatric research aimed to improve the health and well-being of children. If you are interested in a challenging career aimed at groundbreaking research, Seattle Children's Research Institute is the place for you.

    Overview

    We are actively seeking a Clinical Research Coordinator I to join a nationwide project aimed at improving physical activity and indicators of cardiometabolic health for adolescent and young adult childhood cancer survivors (AYA survivors). This project is also designed to reduce disparities due to lack of private health insurance by virtue of its low cost and accessibility. The health coaching intervention will be provided remotely and will utilize a wearable PA tracker, individualized goal setting, and a social media peer support group. The ideal candidate will have experience working with adolescents and young adults, behavioral change or health coaching, and familiarity with the management of a social media platform.  Along with the Principal Investigator, the successful candidate will ensure that research projects are conducted in compliance with federal regulations, institutional policies/departmental guidelines, and standards of Good Clinical Practice.
