The $3 billion California stem cell agency has begun the year looking for several good people to help turn stem cells into cures.
On the top of the list, of course, is the position of president, which pays up to $561,959 annually. The impending vacancy has been known for some time, but the agency recently posted the official job opening on its Web site.
The agency is also looking for a senior medical officer to “manage a portfolio of grants, loans and contracts primarily focused on IND enabling and clinical development projects.” This is a key position that requires an M.D. or Ph.D. in biomedical science and substantial experience. The job pays up to $232,891.
Newly open is the position of communications manager for the agency's Web site and social media efforts, which are the chief public faces of the agency. Amy Adams held the position for several years, but has returned to Stanford to help with their science PR efforts. That position has a top salary of $136,306.
Additionally open is the job of grants management officer, who supervises management of the agency grants. Amy Lewis has left the post to become deputy to the chairman of the agency for public finance and governance. The top salary for the position is $153,316. Helping out the grants management officer will be a new grants management specialist with a top salary of $99,887.
The agency currently has only 57 employees to oversee its research portfolio and to initiate new rounds of awards for research. Additional employment information can be found here.Sphere: Related Content
