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 Therapy Laboratory (CTL) at SCCA is responsible for all cell therapy-based procedures occurring at the SCCA. These range from standard cryopreservations to complex processing such as cell selections, enrichments, and depletions. The laboratory is regulated by the FDA, cGTP/cGMP standards, maintains CAP certification, and is accredited by the Joint Commission and the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
The CTL Coordinator is a full-time position responsible for administrative activities that support clinical operations. The position collaborates with other coordinators, department supervisors/manager, technical staff within the CTL and other personnel within and outside SCCA. The nature of this work is challenging and we are seeking a highly motivated individual with initiative, tenacity, a positive attitude, team work experience and exemplary communication and organizational skills.
Effective cross-functional collaboration with other departments at the SCCA and with external organizations is necessary to the position. This includes being comfortable interacting with medical, research, quality and other administrative staff in multiple departments. While experience specific to this role and environment is desired, many of the key responsibilities can be learned on the job.
