Senior Manager, Academics

| New York

The Academics team is looking for an outstanding team member who will drive Flatiron’s collaborations with our academic medical center partners. Typical Academic engagements include retrospective clinical research studies, deployments of Flatiron’s quality improvement platform, and exploratory workstreams that align with Flatiron’s mission to accelerate research and improvement treatments for cancer patients. Successful candidates will have a strong clinical research and/or clinical informatics background, incredible communication skills, and an innate ability to bring teams and organizations together. Most importantly, candidates must be excited to create and generate new knowledge that is meaningful to cancer patients.

You will support both Flatiron and our academic partners in designing, scoping, and outlining project plans for high-impact collaborations that rely on our clinical data processing infrastructure. You will bring your expertise to the table in communicating with academic faculty members and administrators. You will collaborate with our oncologists, product managers/marketers, engineers, and chart abstraction team to understand what is feasible (and what is not), and maintain open lines of communication with internal and external stakeholders throughout this process. Working in a fast-paced and rapidly growing environment, you will be consistently challenged to partner with Flatiron colleagues to exceed the expectations of our academic partners.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Design, scope, and outline project plans and timelines for collaborations with academic partners
    • Outline limitations and strengths of Flatiron data & technology, and understand how external datasets may help
    • Identify key risks as well as opportunities within each Academic engagement
  • Work with the engineering, product, and oncology teams at Flatiron to lead execution of each project and summarize results in clear, concise ways
  • Break down a complex problem into requisite parts, and design targeted experiments to answer specific questions
  • Collaborate closely with senior academic research partners from project scoping through to publication
  • Continuously revise project plans as issues arise, while keeping all internal and external stakeholders abreast of challenges and proposed solutions
  • Serve as an internal voice of our Academic partners by providing feedback to our product and engineering teams to inform the next iteration of our products and services
  • Serve as an internal Flatiron expert for our academic collaborations

About You

  • 5+ years of relevant experience
  • Strong analytical thinking; ability to translate a multi-faceted question into actionable projects
  • Impeccable communication skills, and ability to translate results of a collaboration into a clear PPT presentation or publication
  • Strong project management and communications skills, with ability to keep multiple simultaneous projects and processes on track and maintain accountability
  • Familiarity with academic medical centers, NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers and/or other complex academic organizations with many stakeholders
  • Intellectually curious, with outstanding problem-solving skills
  • Professional experience in clinical research or informatics
  • Nose for value; able to effectively prioritize in a challenging, time-sensitive environment
  • Passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology

Bonus points

  • Experience in oncology
  • Technical programming skills such as SQL for database query, R for data analysis (or similar)
  • Experience in quality improvement, quality measure development, and/or value based care payment programs
  • Familiarity with research in an industry context (e.g., at biotech and life sciences companies)

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

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.

Software Engineer

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.

Kevin

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

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.
