The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC) is an internationally renowned research institution, committed to conducting and coordinating independent basic cancer research and training within a technologically advanced environment.
The GCRC is seeking a scientist with a background in research as well as platform management and development. The successful candidate will be a compelling leader who has expertise in not only management of research enabling cores/platforms but also optimizing their function to ensure the most cost effective operations possible.
Reporting to the Director of the GCRC, the Deputy Director will collaborate closely with the Centre's Director, scientific teams and Platform/Core managers to ensure that the GCRC and each Core/Platform operates as an optimal means to enable cutting edge research through their services to PIs both within and outside the GCRC. He or She should act as the link between the GCRC and consultants/partners working to leverage commercialization opportunities. Specifically, liaise with PIs, private/public sector partners in collaboration with GCRC consulting resources to commercialize current research with the aim of generating additional revenues to enable future research.
The successful applicant will be responsible for:
The creation and implementation of a scientific strategy for the development of new technologies for the following platforms/cores:
The GCRC driven Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) grant proposals. This includes facilitating pre and post-award support to PIs with respect to construction and equipment purchase planning and execution.
The general management/inventorying of equipment within the GCRC. This includes support to PIs through the purchasing, commissioning and decommissioning processes.
All the moves and renovations within the GCRC (i.e. following any CFI infrastructure grants). This extends to being the primary point of contact with McGill Facilities Management and Ancillary Services (Project Management, Operations, Design Services, Energy Management and Grounds).
EDUCATION/EXPERIENCE Doctorate (PhD) in a bio-medical field, ideally one relevant to the research mission of the GCRC, and 7-10 years of experience.
