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.
Create transformative genetic therapies for pediatric immune diseases in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We are seeking an experienced laboratory scientist with interests in hematopoietic cell therapies, gene editing, and translational immunology. This scientist will help to lead a research team focused on generating and testing hematopoetic stem cell gene editing approaches for treating blood and immune disorders. You will join a robust, established team that is expanding upon our gene editing platforms (see for example PMID: 32493794; 26424571; 31722988; 31279229), maximizing your potential to achieve high impact research publications and therapeutic products. We are in downtown Seattle, a city that is surrounded by lakes, the Puget Sound, and the Cascade and Olympic mountains- a great location for both urban and outdoor adventurers. The projects are collaborative and supported by biotech, NIH, and institutional funding sources, and the laboratory is led by Dr. David Rawlings, Director of the Center for Immunity and Immunotherapies at the Seattle Children's Research Institute.
