At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch's pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation's first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women's Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Fred Hutch is an active partner in the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), which brings together the leading research teams and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children's and UW Medicine.

The project manager position will be under the direction of Dr. Heather Greenlee, a member of the Public Health Sciences and Clinical Research Divisions and Medical Director of Integrative Medicine Program at the SCCA. Dr. Greenlee's research program uses both clinical trials and observational studies to examine a broad range of lifestyle modifications (diet, physical activity, weight management) and complementary/integrative therapies for cancer prevention and control, especially in under-resourced and vulnerable populations.
Dr. Greenlee is seeking a part-time (50% FTE) project manager to oversee the Greenlee Studies budget portfolio and coordinate administrative tasks for specific Greenlee Studies projects. This position is currently posted at 50% FTE and is expected to grow to 100% FTE over the next year. Budget portfolio management includes grant pre- and post-award management and overall budget tracking and reporting. Administrative projects include developing and tracking work agreements and contracts across multiple internal and external departments and institutions.

Strong skills in multi-tasking, communication, organization, attention to detail and interpersonal relationships are critical to this position. Collaboration and cooperation are essential to functioning within a team that values a positive and interdisciplinary lab culture. The project manager will work with administrative and support staff across multiple local institutions, including Fred Hutch, SCCA and the University of Washington (UW), as well as with collaborators at outside institutions and national organizations.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
