Coordinator, Research Oncology Operations

| Greater NYC Area

Our Research Organization is looking for an outstanding team member to provide administrative and process management support. This role will primarily support the Research Oncology (RO) team, which is comprised of medical oncologists and oncology nurse practitioners, who provide clinical and research leadership across Flatiron’s Research Organization, ensuring quality and translating real-world data into insights that benefit cancer patients. In addition, the Coordinator will support other critical processes across the Research Organization, under the management of the Director of Strategic Projects.

Successful candidates will be detail-oriented, skilled in process management, and excited to support the generation of new knowledge that will accelerate research in oncology and meaningfully improve cancer treatments. The Coordinator’s responsibilities will include tasks such as management of tools to track team activities and capacity, coordinating with other internal teams on logistics for meetings/events, helping to manage RO staff’s calendars and travel so that their time is most efficiently used, and working with the rest of the RO Operations team to continuously refine our tools and processes.

Critical to the success of this role will be organization, communication skills, and resourcefulness required to support a dynamic Research team contributing to an ever-growing number of projects and initiatives.

  • Planning of special events, which may be team-specific, or in collaboration with larger Flatiron-wide event or conference planning
  • Support the Research Organization with process maintenance and activity/assignment tracking and administrative organization (e.g., tracking outstanding requests, updating documentation, etc.)
  • Assist the Director of Strategic Projects, as needed, in support of the entire Research Organization’s growth, such as development of new processes, and support of senior members of the Research Organization

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
