St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (St. Jude), in Memphis, TN, is one of the world's premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic diseases in children. The mission of St. Jude is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
We are proud of our heritage of diversity and continue that tradition today. The organization's workforce originates from across the United States and from 90 countries around the globe. To date, St. Jude has treated children from across the United States and 70 foreign countries, seeing more than 4,000 patients a year. In celebration of this diverse cultural background, 70 flags from our employees' countries of origin hang proudly in the public atrium of our central research tower.
St. Jude's recruiting efforts are nationally and internationally focused. Our goal is to bring together the world's most dedicated, gifted researchers and clinicians to support organization’s life saving work. Thus, categorizing our employee population into standard ethnic groups is not reflective of the international, geographic diversity of St. Jude. Pediatric oncology and pediatric catastrophic diseases are highly specialized fields of study, and the availability of candidates is often very limited. We are committed to seeking the best talent available and to equal opportunity for all qualified minority and female applicants.
