    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.

    The successful candidate will support our onboarding program and recruitment efforts split approximately 50% each while partnering closely with our Employee Onboarding Program Manager and Senior Recruiter.  Onboarding responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, support with the following:  facilitating Research Orientation, coordinating pre-boarding communication with hiring managers, and conducting new hire check-ins.  Future projects and responsibilities will also include developing campus tours and other onboarding program features as needed.  In addition, recruitment responsibilities will include resume screening, scheduling interviews, facilitating reference checks, generating offer letters, and responding to Hiring Manager inquiries on the recruitment lifecycle.  After initial training, the new successful candidate may be assigned a small number of requisitions with close supervision:  confirm requisition, establish expectation with hiring manager, post and advertise, candidate review, and prepare new hires for employment.  Once fully trained, the HR Specialist would be considered a primary back-up in the event the Onboarding Program Manager or Senior Recruiter are not available.
