Boston University's School of Medicine is seeking a Grants Manager with 3+ years of pre-award experience to work with the Framingham Heart Center (FHC). The center is anchored by the esteemed Framingham Heart Study, which was founded in 1948, with the ambitious goal of identifying risk factors for heart disease. Today, the study remains a world-class epicenter for cutting-edge heart, brain, bone, and sleep research.
FHC is currently home to several highly successful research faculty with a vast portfolio of sponsored activities. The Grants Manager will need to work closely with faculty and their research support teams to prepare research proposals, and manage award lifecycle activities such as award set-up, progress reports, carry-forward and NCE requests. Though the focus of this position will be on pre-award and life-cycle reporting activities, the ideal candidate will be well-versed in both pre and post award sponsored program activities.
We are building a top notch administrative team to match the outstanding faculty at FHC. To succeed in this role, and handle the competing demands of this fast paced research environment, candidates must be able to work well in a team. In addition, candidates must be well-organized, self-motivated, and present with a positive and enthusiastic outlook.
Salary: Grade 75
3-5 years of work experience in the administration of sponsored programs and Bachelor's degree required. Demonstrated prior experience with pre-award grants management is required.
Administrative offices are located on the Boston University Medical Campus. Occasional travel to Framingham may be required; accommodations can be made for those without access to an automobile.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.
Boston University is no small operation. With over 33,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 140 countries, 10,000 faculty and staff, 16 schools and colleges, and 250 fields of study, our two campuses are always humming.
