Job Description Summary
The Gene Therapy Program (GTP) is entering a new era of unprecedented opportunity with the great potential to reshape the face of medicine as we know it. Our discoveries have set the stage for successful treatments and possibly even cures for devastating genetic diseases.
The laboratory of Dr. Jim Wilson, at GTP of the University of Pennsylvania, has been a leader in the development of innovative vector technology for close to three decades. We have emerged as the “go-to” organization for public and private partners, who want to participate in the gene therapy space. Currently, we are positioned to lead another round of vector innovation and establish pre-clinical and clinical proof-of-concept in therapeutic applications of in-vivo genome editing.
Continuation of all GTP positions is contingent upon funding.
Due to the continued growth of our program, we are searching for a new Chief Medical Officer (CMO) to provide strong visionary leadership and drive excellence in our clinical research and trial design.
As a CMO, you will assume leadership, as well as a hands-on role in the strategic planning for global clinical trials by guiding your teams during the design, ramp-up, execution, and reporting of clinical studies and may require some hands-on accountability for study oversight/management. You will influence through the cross-functional team structures as well as through direct line management to guide clinical development strategy and clinical trial operations across all gene therapy programs. Providing direct oversight and mentorship to Clinical Development and Operations team, you will use your technical and strategic expertise to ensure consistent processes, excellence in planning, and execution of clinical trials within-study timelines. You will evaluate new proposed research programs, doing a complete clinical analysis, and will determine if GTP will move forward with preclinical research. Also, you will partner with Research Directors on early pipeline strategies and will work closely with Business Development to assess potential in-licensing product candidates.
Qualified candidates will have a passion for science and patients, as well as entrepreneurial drive to help the organization succeed. You will be an exceptionally sharp thinker with the ability to push innovation and creative thinking. You will also be a strategic thinker, accountable and forward-looking, and able to see larger business picture. This means flexibility, taking the initiative, thinking “on the fly”; a desire to be very hands-on, decisive, and self-assured are critical.
Joining GTP offers clinical research professionals the unique opportunity of seeing research go from bench to bedside and discoveries that could one day lead to cures.
