The UCLA Center for Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is currently seeking an experienced Project Manager to join our operations. The over-arching mission of the UCLA CTSI ISP is to integrate special

The ideal candidate must exhibit a willingness to be flexible and ability to work well with others is critical.


To be considered for this position, you must have a minimum 2-years professional research experience as a project manager. Formal training in health sciences or public health. Experience building and maintaining complex datasets. Experience writing reports and presenting project findings at local meetings. Superior organizational and multi-tasking skills. Excellent written and verbal communication skills including attention to spelling and grammar. Works well with others on a team and experience working as part of diverse teams. Access to local transportation for travel to other CTSI sites for meetings. Preferred but not required: Experience presenting project findings at national meetings. Experience writing grants and manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals. Working knowledge of UCLA systems and policies. Experience working with Institutional Review Boards. Experience working with vulnerable populations.
