October 7, 2022
The UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) is a national leader in oncology research. Immunotherapy is an exciting and rapidly advancing field of oncology research and the UCSF HDFCCC has an active research program to enhance our capability for rapid advancements in scientific discovery.

The mission of the UCSF HDFCCC Cancer Immunotherapy Program (CIP) is to provide patients and their families with streamlined access to cutting-edge cancer immunotherapies. In addition to providing compassionate, patient-centered care, our team of clinicians and researchers is dedicated to improving outcomes for all patients by gaining a better understanding of the role the immune system plays in fighting cancer.

We are looking to hire a Clinical Research Manager to help develop, shape and grow the clinical research team. The UCSF HDFCCC is a fast-paced environment and the successful candidate will be an independent, detail-oriented individual with drive and focus.

The candidate will be a proven leader with project management skills and mindset, experience in oncology clinical trials, and have the ability to consistently deliver results on a tight timeline. The candidate will have leadership skills and training experience to provide operational leadership to Clinical Research Supervisors and a group of Clinical Research Coordinators (~5-6 direct reports), while monitoring workload and productivity.

Under the direction of the Associate Director, Clinical Research Programs, the Clinical Research Manager, is responsible for strategic planning to meet program goals, along with ensuring all reporting and study milestones are met including recruitment targets, data entry timelines, budget and sponsor requirements. This position also requires the candidate to be responsive to Principal Investigators and scientific oversight committees. Experience collaborating with senior leadership and research staff is a plus.

The success of the team is dependent on managing performance, maintaining morale, upholding consistency across disease programs in terms of workload and assignment management, as well as maintaining high quality customer service. To achieve service quality, the Clinical Research Manager will work closely with staff to identify areas in need of training and development, review, and refreshers. The Clinical Research Manager also works closely with the Associate Director, Clinical Research Programs, to report and interpret performance and metric data.
