Scientific Progam Director

The Department of Systems Biology  is looking to hire a Scientific Program Director who will work in a complex, multi-investigator effort to employ powerful gene therapy approaches in pursuit of clinical treatment of radiation toxicity and morbidity using a combination of CRISPR technologies, high-throughput experimental assays, molecular biology, biochemical techniques, and animal studies. We are seeking a candidate who has expertise in project management, scientific writing, grant administration, and regulatory engagement with the FDA for translational studies. Working with the Principal Investigator (PI), the candidate will be responsible for the management, operations and administration of a large multi-million, multi-year DARPA supported effort and the coordination of the associated research and reporting activities as they relate to grant deliverables. This includes making sure scientific progress and/or deliverables occur in a timely fashion, communication of progress occurs amongst collaborating laboratories within and outside of Columbia, and scientific progress is communicated in oral or written form to the funding institution. The candidate will initiate and lead meetings among the scientific staff and will work closely with the PI and research team members to ensure that research studies are completed on time and within budget. Will assist in manuscript preparation and grant writing as needed. Furthermore, the candidate will lead and organize pre-IND regulatory engagement activities with the FDA towards clinical pursuit of desired research objectives as well as assist in potential technology transition of program results towards commercialization.
