At Fred Hutch we value collaboration, compassion, determination, excellence, innovation, integrity and respect.

Our mission is directly tied to the humanity, dignity and inherent value of each employee, patient, community member and supporter. Our commitment to learning across our differences and similarities make us stronger. We seek employees who bring different and innovative ways of seeing the world and solving problems. Fred Hutch is in pursuit of becoming an anti-racist organization. We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, anti-racism and inclusion.
The Clinical Research Coordinator will assist with conducting behavioral science research studies, including those using surveys and qualitative interviewing techniques. All of these studies will be based in The Shen Research Lab, which focuses on palliative care, end-of-life care, and working with patients with advanced illness. Research study tasks will be performed in person and remotely (telephone and video conferencing). Responsibilities will include preparation of research materials; recruiting and interviewing (surveys and semi-structured qualitative interviews) patients, caregivers, and experts/providers; audio-recording interviews; data entry and database creation and management; qualitative coding of interviews. The hired research coordinator will also assist with preparation of progress reports, presentations, grant applications, Institutional Review Board (IRB) materials, and some assistance with Dr. Shen’s scheduling and coordination of study activities/oversight. Because some research studies are conducted with Spanish-speaking Latino cancer patients and/or caregivers, having fluency in Spanish and English is desired but not required.
