The Gene Therapy Program (GTP) is entering a new era of unprecedented opportunity with the great potential to reshape the face of medicine as we know it. Our discoveries have set the stage for successful treatments and possibly even cures for devastating genetic diseases.
The laboratory of Dr. Jim Wilson, at GTP of the University of Pennsylvania, has been a leader in the development of innovative vector technology for close to three decades. We have emerged as the ‘go-to’ organization for public and private partners, who want to participate in the gene therapy space. Currently, we are positioned to lead another round of vector innovation and establish pre-clinical and clinical proof-of-concept in therapeutic applications of in-vivo genome editing.
We are looking for a Project Manager, to be the driving force behind our highly complex translational research projects and collaborations.
As a Project Manager, you will lead cross-functional teams in a matrix environment. You will guide project team activities to meet GTP’s objectives and drive team accountability for deliverables, ensuring projects meet defined milestones. You will coordinate and facilitate Launch Team Meetings where you will document outcomes, actions, and risks. You will prepare and manage budgets, project timelines, project scope documents and all other project documentation. You will review these submissions to ensure the integrity of the data and partner with Study Director to resolve technical/data issues with these submissions. You will be the liaison to our external sponsor project leaders, delivering transparent, timely and concise verbal and written communication during regular status updates and technical reports. Proactively identify and escalate risks and issues to relevant stakeholders; lead development and delivery of tactical and achievable mitigation and contingency planning. You will drive pre-IND activities and direct drafting/filing of related regulatory filings.
