The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is seeking a qualified individual with proven experience in the program development and management to serve as the Program Manager III (PM) for the Genomic Medicine Initiative (GMI), a new program to support translational research efforts to bring genome information into the clinical care program. In this role, this individual will be responsible for strategic development of an infrastructure supporting an integrated pipeline consisting of necessary technologies and expertise in genetic analysis, bioinformatics and clinical care.
The Program Manager III will plan, implement, and coordinate existing activities of moderate complexity in the scientific area of genomic sequencing in a clinical setting. The nature of the project will be varied, addressing scientific and administrative needs. This person is expected to execute the work of a project manager independently, with minimal supervision.
The Program Manager III will report to the Director of the GMI and will play a leadership role in strategic development and execution of the integrated project, in managing funding for the program and in influencing the change necessary to ensure success of this integrated program. The PM is responsible for framing and creating, with the support of the team, all deliverables throughout the project lifecycle. This person may also be asked to play a leadership role in the strategic planning of new initiatives, including development of business cases and project plans.
The PM will typically indirectly oversee the efforts of the staff in various components of the GMI pipeline, and will play a key role in identifying and monitoring the staffing needs of the project. This project requires daily interaction with core members of the GMI pipeline as well as other key UCSF staff including departments and schools as well as central business units. The PM will typically represent the project to key stakeholder groups, including executive leadership, control points, senior managers, IT Governance committees, faculty committees, as well as departmental staff, managers, subject matter experts, and focus groups.
Please note: This is a limited two-year position, with the possibility of extension.
