The Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute (VGTI) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has assembled a multidisciplinary team of scientists to respond to serious viral disease threats, including AIDS, chronic viral infection-associated diseases, newly emerging viral diseases and infectious diseases of the elderly. Our programs are intended to span the continuum between basic and clinical science, in which discoveries are rapidly advanced from the level of molecular and cellular biology through animal models and ultimately into clinical testing. The development of this unique program in immunology and virology provides an important training opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at OHSU. This is why an important part of our mission is the training of young scientists in newer academic disciplines emerging at the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute.
This Research Project Manager position will organize and lead a study of allogeneic stem cell transplantation in a pre-clinical macaque model. This will involve detailed management of all aspects of the study, from identifying the correct MHC typed animals to setting and executing detailed study events in close communication and collaboration with other project stakeholders including veterinary and laboratory staff. A working knowledge of the molecular and immunological techniques required to execute the study is helpful. May need to supervise one to two individuals supporting the project. The ideal candidate will be one that has excellent organizational skills to manage multiple aspects of the project at once.
