University of California Los Angeles

Requisition Number: 32814
Salary: $5,692 - $14,925 monthly

Position Description:
The Broad Stem Cell Research Center (BSCRC) is a multi-disciplinary and integrated collaboration of scientific, academic, and medical disciplines for the purpose of revolutionizing the treatment of disease through personalized cellular therapies and regenerative medicine. Our more than 200 faculty members represent the professional schools (Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Dentistry, Engineering, Law, and Management) as well as the College. The Center's activities involve collaborations across UCLA, as well as throughout the state, country and internationally. Our work encompasses all three pillars of the University's education, research and service mission.

The UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center (BSCRC) director of communications, marketing, outreach and education is responsible for a complex and varied scope of activities supporting the BSCRC's mission. As a member of the BSCRC senior leadership team, the position directs the center's broad range of outward facing communication and outreach initiatives. This position oversees a strong, integrated program that utilizes traditional media, social media, multimedia, stakeholder communications, and intra-mural publicity opportunities as well as executive communications to build support for the BSCRC mission and to promote, enhance and protect the organization's reputation.

This position directs all communications activities for the center, including designing, managing, and executing an intra and extra-mural strategic communications, marketing and media relations program to enhance the center's national and international visibility and reputation, as well as to position its members, staff and other spokespeople as leaders in stem cell research and regenerative medicine. The director of communications, marketing, outreach and education develops appropriate internal and external messaging that represents the vision and accomplishments of the Center and the Regenerative Medicine theme, one of six functional components of the DGSOM research themes. This includes developing written, video and other types of content to create a compelling view into a rapidly evolving field. This position develops and utilizes industry-best metrics and analytic technology and tools to continually assess and refine productivity and performance.

The position also oversees outreach efforts undertaken by the Center. The position furthers BSCRC fundraising objectives through close collaboration with the development team and the creation of targeted donor-focused communications and collateral. The director of communications, marketing, outreach and education collaborates with leadership on the Center's participation in state-wide initiatives, for example the 2020 ballot initiative to renew funding for the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). Finally, the position oversees the BSCRC's educational activities. These include internal initiatives such as providing BSCRC faculty, students and fellows with communications education and training. The position also manages externally-focused state-wide education campaigns like the annual Stem Cell Day.

The position is responsible for collaborating with key partners across campus including the media relations and marketing teams at UCLA Health, the College, Office of Media Relations, the David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM), and other professional schools. The position works closely with a broad range of state and federal agencies, individual and foundation donors, and staff from other academic institutions nationally and internationally, as well as university leadership at the highest level.
