Open Recruitment Positions and Fellowships

Research Project Coordinator (Project Manager)

The Brenden-Colson Center for Pancreatic Care (BCCPC) seeks a project coordinator to manage several important team research projects, under the supervision of our Scientific Program Manager.  The Center, in collaboration with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and departments of Surgery, GI and Radiology, has recently joined a national consortium focused on the early detection of pancreatic cancer in patients who have high risk for developing it in their future.  Our NCI-funded project takes three distinct approaches that must be integrated and cohesive, and includes a large number of involved parties.  This position will coordinate this project (and others) with active management of expectations, timelines, and deliverables through facilitation and coordination of steps.  You will also assist with outreach initiatives associated with various grants, including participating in professional conferences and community events, and evaluating current and developing new recruitment plans to focus on increasing numbers of research subjects from diverse and rural communities, via community education, increased access and data collection. 

This person will provide a high level of customer service both internally (OHSU researchers, health providers and staff) and externally (collaborators, both academic and industry, and other community members) including prompt and professional communication, along with familiarity with available information technology, flexible coverage of internal service needs and the continuous application of process improvement. Prior experience in oncology and/or translational research and with collaborative projects is preferred.

If you have strong organizational and communication skills, the ability to work with a large team under minimal supervision, and experience with multi-part/multi-phase projects, consider joining Oregon’s pancreas research headquarters on the South Waterfront to build your future in biomedical research project management.
