The UCSF Center for Translational and Policy Research on Precision Medicine (TRANSPERS) is recruiting for a Program Manager & Analyst. Duties involve (1) project management and analysis (2) research support. Research projects focus particularly on the burgeoning fields of translational science, biotechnology, and precision medicine - health care targeting medical interventions to patients based on their genetics and its impact on clinical care and health policy. A particular focus is cancer screening and treatment. Methodological areas of interest include applied economics and policy analysis, analysis of secondary databases, cost-effectiveness analysis, insurance coverage, comparative effectiveness research, and evidence synthesis. The successful candidate will work on highly topical, policy-relevant research projects with a worldwide, highly regarded team of researchers. The successful candidate will be expected to perform a range of tasks ranging from more routine administrative and research support to high-level tasks such as managing a Center and participating in analyses. The candidate will have opportunities to interface not only with academic researchers but also with health insurers, health industry, and government. The candidate will become part of a hard-working team who are enthusiastic about and dedicated to Center projects. This position offers the right candidate an opportunity to gain knowledge about an emerging field, to work with a wide array of project investigators and University staff, and to develop leadership abilities in program management. This is a great career opportunity for someone who is a quick learner, can understand the big picture, and can be equally comfortable doing computer work or people-oriented work. The position could be part, variable or full time. It is grant-supported and thus the incumbent must enjoy fast-paced and entrepreneurial environments. Work hours can be flexible and the work schedule can be hybrid or remote; however, the incumbent may be asked at times to work as needed to complete a task and to travel occasionally to represent team research.
Activities of this position include:
1. Program management, e.g., manage project deadlines and budgets, participate in grant submissions including budget and proposal preparation. 2. Project analyses and research support, e.g., participate in research activities by working directly with the PI and other collaborators to analyze topics, organize meetings and symposiums, develop research materials such as websites and newsletters, assist the PI and collaborators as required.
Please note: The compensation ranges listed online for roles not covered by a bargaining unit agreement are very wide, however a job offer will typically fall in the range of 80% - 120% of the established mid-point. An offer will take into consideration the experience of the final candidate AND the current salary level of individuals working at UCSF in a similar role.
For roles covered by a bargaining unit agreement, there will be specific rules about where a new hire would be placed on the range.
