M.S. Program in Translational Biomedical Research Management

Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment (rank open) as Director of a new M.S. in Translational Biomedical Research Management (TBRM) Program.  We seek individuals with expertise in translating basic biomedical research findings into marketable medical products, with preference given to those with prior college-level teaching experience.  Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Pharmacology, Molecular Genetics, Biomedical Engineering or a related field, and/or M.D., and at least 5 years of industrial experience in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or other biomedical products.

Teaching load will average 20 credit hours or their equivalent (in administrative release time) per year.  In addition to teaching and overseeing summer internships, the Director is expected to:  recruit, hire, supervise and evaluate a full-time administrative assistant and part-time instructors; work closely with Admissions to market the program and recruit students; identify and contract with internship sites; refine or revise the curriculum as necessary; advise students; and oversee all other administrative functions within the Program, including assessment.  The successful candidate will be committed to excellence and innovation in teaching, active engagement in scholarly or creative activities, and working closely with students.  Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.

M.S. in TBRM Program

The interdisciplinary M.S. in Translational Biomedical Research Management (TBRM) program integrates didactic and experiential training in biotechnology, computational, problem–solving, and management methods to prepare versatile, critically thinking managers and leaders for academic, industrial, and governmental research facilities.  Students will bring their diverse academic and professional backgrounds to bear on expanding and honing their knowledge and skills so they can fill emerging roles in the growing field of Translational Biomedical Research Management.

This cohort-model program will start in Fall 2018 and will combine on-line (combination of instructor-led synchronous and asynchronous sessions, individual self-study, and virtual teamwork) and on-campus (2-3 day sessions several times per semester) instruction.  Some courses will be fully on-line, whereas others will be blended (on-line plus on-campus components).  Courses will be offered during three 14-week semesters per year (Fall, Spring, and Summer).  A list of courses and a tentative schedule is available upon request.
