Position Summary: We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Project Manager.
The Department of Population Health is seeking a Project Manager to support two exciting initiatives: growth of the departments graduate programs and the development of a new center focused on epidemiologic research.
The Department of Population Health (DPH) currently offers two doctoral programs in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, in conjunction with the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. The Department will be adding a third doctoral program in Population Health in 2018. The Project Manager (Graduate Student Affairs) will work closely with the Directors of the doctoral programs and the Sackler administration to create a supportive learning environment for the doctoral students and ensure the smooth operation of multiple aspects of the educational program. The Project Manager will chart paths for the student body and monitor their experiences in DPH. He or she will serve as a direct contact for student inquiries; promote the program through communications with prospective students; support recruitment at onsite and offsite events; and assist in the administration of the programs
Additionally, the department is building a Center for Innovation in Population Health Surveillance that will develop innovative surveillance methodology and promote the use of novel methods and metrics to evaluate health and the impact of healthcare policies and initiatives, particularly in urban settings. The mission of the Center is to develop innovative methods for collecting, analyzing, and making widely available information on health profiles of populations and their social determinants with the goal of advancing frontiers in knowledge, guiding resource allocation, and targeting policies and programs with precision to affected populations. The Project Manager will work as part of a team to support development of a population-based data infrastructure of national, state and local data streams. Specifically, the Project Manager will help lead the grants and project management of a series of extramurally and intramurally funded projects that use novel surveillance approaches for urban population health monitoring.
