The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The Cellular Therapeutics Department (CTP) at SCCA is one of the largest cell therapy facilities in the United States and is on the cutting edge of new technologies for cancer therapy, including cell-based immunotherapy. We are committed to advancing treatment options for our patients through the translation of innovative research into clinical practice. We collaborate with our Alliance members (University of Washington, Fred Hutch, and Seattle Children’s Hospital) as well as corporate entities.
CTP is responsible for all minimally manipulated therapeutic cell processing occurring at the SCCA for standard practice as well as clinical trials. Procedures range from cryopreservation and flow cytometric enumeration of cell proportions to more complex procedures such as cell selection, enrichment, and depletion. The laboratory is regulated by the FDA cGTP/cGMP standards, maintains College of American Pathologists (CAP) certification, and is accredited by the Joint Commission and the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cell Therapy (FACT).
The Project Coordinator is an integral member of the CTP team, collaborating across functions which include the Apheresis Group (APH), Cell Therapy Laboratory (CTL) and Quality as well as across organizations within and outside the Alliance. The primary responsibilities of this position are to manage equipment for APH and CTL, to coordinate and track training, and to participate in a variety of cell therapy projects relating to both operations and administration. The position reports to the Associate Director of Cellular Therapeutics (CTP). Regular interactions with medical, scientific and quality staff provide a stimulating and diverse environment.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with initiative, excellent communication and collaboration skills, consummate professionalism and attention to detail. While specific experience with cell therapy operations or administration is a plus, it’s possible to learn about this field on the job. The qualified applicant should be dedicated to serving patients and SCCA’s vision to lead the world in translating scientific discovery into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of cancer. The qualified applicant will be someone who is at ease working either independently or as part of a team.
Employees must adhere to all SCCA policies and processes, including the SCCA Code of Conduct and all HIPAA privacy requirements.
