The Scientific Program Administrator, Scientific Programs Department, will be responsible for the management of a multidisciplinary educational workshop for physicians who are early-stage investigators (as defined by the NIH) underrepresented in medicine, or physicians who have a demonstrated commitment to increasing diversity in clinical research to the principles of good clinical trial design. The workshop will provide the educational foundation and the tools needed to conduct clinical trials that will yield definitive results and have the potential to impact patient care and increase the participation of diverse populations in clinical trials for oncology, benign hematologic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and autoimmune diseases. A unique aspect of the workshop is to address the frequent disconnect between communities and clinical trialists by teaching effective methods that create structures for communities to help refine clinical questions and trials for improved patient benefit. Bridging the gap between clinical investigators and the communities they serve by utilizing highly innovative approaches to clinical research will be a unique and key component of the program. The workshop is developed in support of a broader project focused on mentoring, education, diversity, equity, and inclusion issues in biomedical research and will require extensive external communication and collaboration.

Organizational Profile: The American Association for Cancer Research’s (AACR’s) primary mission is to prevent and ultimately cure cancer. As the first and largest cancer research organization dedicated to accelerating the conquest of cancer, employees at all levels of the AACR are uniquely positioned to contribute to directly impact that mission.   Our organization hosts more than 30 scientific conferences and educational workshops annually including the AACR Annual Meeting which has attracted more than 22,500 constituents involved in cancer research. With the challenges facing in-person meetings in 2020 and 2021, our IT team led the charge to pivot our technology to support virtual meetings and the 2020 Annual Meeting had more than 100,000 attendees learning and collaborating on the latest trends and findings in cancer research.   Group Profile: The Enterprise Platform Services and Data Management Team oversees the software and processes that facilitate the connection and collaboration of the organization’s more than 58,000 members at the forefront of cancer research.   We manage the enterprise Customer Relationship Management (eCRM) solution along with its related systems and customizations that support our Membership, Event Registration, and other business processes. In addition, we are standing up the organization’s Master Data Management (MDM) solution, as well as its enterprise Data Warehouse (DW).   Our group is also responsible for the AACR IT Help Desk and is in the process of building out a more robust customer service offering, for internal and external constituents.   Job Summary: A Technical Projects Manager plays a pivotal role in overseeing Information Technology projects undertaken by the Enterprise Platform Services and Data Management team (EPS&DM). The role involves establishing project management methodologies and approaches tailored to organizational needs and aligned with Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) best practices. The Technical Projects Manager's responsibilities encompass educating and aligning project team members with the chosen methodology and facilitating its execution, whether working with internal AACR team members or external third-party collaborators.   In the task definition phase, this role facilitates the breakdown of high-level needs and requirements into detailed, actionable items, ensuring that these items contain accurate and comprehensive information to achieve the desired outcomes. When required, the role collaborates indirectly or directly to bridge gaps in understanding and documentation. This responsibility extends to the creation and maintenance of Life of Project and Life of System documentation for all projects and systems within scope. Additionally, the role oversees tasks carried out by third parties, including estimating, tracking, and comparing actual work and costs to estimates to ensure compliance with contracts and agreements.   A deep understanding of the tech stacks utilized at AACR is essential, as high-level requests may necessitate changes across multiple systems. While prior experience with the tech stack tools is preferred, adaptability to evolving technologies and systems is expected, with training provided as needed.   Administratively, the role entails conducting meetings directly with project team members to facilitate project work, including periodic discussions such as daily "stand-up meetings" to review tasks, address pressing needs, prioritize, and identify and mitigate potential blockers. It also encompasses higher-level meetings like "sprint planning" and "sprint review sessions" to assess overall progress and priorities.   Fundamentally, Project Management emphasizes the efficient coordination of tasks, processes, and resources to attain project objectives, with a primary focus on managing these elements rather than individual personnel. While effective leadership and communication are essential, the core of Project Management centers around organizing, planning, and executing tasks to ensure successful project outcomes. In summary, the Technical Projects Manager acts as a catalyst for the team, primarily addressing the administrative aspects of Project Management to enable others to focus on specific tasks.
