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 Project Manager I is responsible for the management, planning, and coordination of a project’s activities to ensure that goals or objectives of the project(s) are accomplished within prescribed time frame and funding parameters. Reviews project proposal or plan to determine time frame, funding limitations, procedures for accomplishing projects, staffing requirements, and allotment of available resources to various phases of projects. Establishes work plans and multi-disciplinary staffing for each phase of the project(s), and arranges for recruitment or assignment of project personnel. Management efforts include scheduling and budgeting activities and require collaboration with leaders to implement the project’s objectives in support of identified goals and the continuous improvement process. Responsible to monitor the project’s effectiveness and to mobilize stakeholders in support of continuous improvement in project initiatives. May work across departments to ensure effective project execution/implementation. Oversees the process of executing initiatives essential for the success of the project, including communication with all stakeholders, both internal and external. May oversee and lead a project team. This level exercises independent judgment subject to general review.

A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. And a project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different functional areas and across multiple geographies.

Note: Project(s) typically associated with this level have a somewhat narrow scope/impact on the organization, include a limited number of staff devoted to the project (usually <3), are small to moderate sized projects, and have a limited budget to complete the project.
