The Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program (HOPP) was founded by Dr. Charles Sawyers in 2006 to address the challenges presented by cancer research in the era of targeted therapies. By bringing together researchers in many disciplines, HOPP’s goal is to advance scientific knowledge while bridging discoveries made in the laboratory with those made in the clinic. The department has grown to a faculty of nearly 20 physician-scientists, each with independent laboratories and research aims, and approximately 300 research and administrative staff.
The HOPP administrative team is seeking a resourceful, customer-service-oriented, administrative professional to provide support to a designated group of HOPP faculty members and their respective laboratories. A successful candidate must demonstrate sound judgment, independent decision making ability, thoroughness, attention to detail, and initiative. The candidate will possess effective time management, organization, and prioritization skills and be able to leverage a broad range of written and verbal communication skills to meet the diverse administrative and operational needs of the designated faculty members. The employee in this role will be expected to facilitate and maintain effective communication between HOPP Administration, their assigned Principal Investigators (PIs) and laboratory members, institutional contacts, and external parties such as vendors and collaborators.
The HOPP Administrative Assistant is expected to assist the assigned PIs with administrative functions of laboratory management as well as academic and research activities. Critical attributes and responsibilities of the position include: extensive calendar and travel management; screening and prioritizing requests for the PIs; meeting planning and coordination; clerical duties and processing administrative paperwork; and assisting with the preparation of various documents including letters, grant applications, biosketches, CVs, and presentations. The incumbent will also provide administrative support to the PI’s laboratory staff, including: arranging meetings and travel, processing reimbursements, onboarding new lab members, and other personnel related responsibilities. The incumbent may participate in larger departmental initiatives or special projects as well, depending on time and availability.
