California Stem Cell Agency Seeking to Fill High Level Positions
The $3 billion California stem cell agency is looking for a handful of new employees, including a top level executive who could be paid as much as $250,000 a year.
Openings for four positions are currently up on the Web site of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), as the agency is formally known.
They are a grants management specialist, systems engineer, science officer/senior science officer and associate director/director of therapeutics. They would join the 51 employees currently at the agency.
The listings with two different titles are for one job only. The ultimate title of the successful candidate will depend on their level of prior experience, according to the agency.
The director of therapeutics position carries a maximum salary of $250,065. The job would involve managing budgets of $600 million plus. The job listing also said candidates should know “what ‘great’ looks like and (use) that vision to set clear direction that is fully understood by the therapeutic team.”
The position would report to the vice president for therapeutics, Ramona Doyle, a former Genentech executive who joined CIRM in July.
The agency is currently based in San Francisco but will be moving its headquarters to Oakland this fall.
