Lab Operations Project Manager

| Chicago

Passionate about making a difference in the world of cancer genomics?

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of this data. We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We are looking for a Lab Operations Project Manager who will be responsible for the coordination of projects within our labs and with partners.

What You’ll Do:

  • Responsible for tracking and managing progress on laboratory projects
  • Coordinate with cross-functional teams to ensure that deadlines are adhered to; communicate and problem solve roadblocks as necessary
  • Create action plans for new projects that are generated by new internal and external requests
  • Ensure that appropriate time and resources are dedicated to support laboratory projects
  • Responsible for coordination across labs, including requesting samples and documents, item coordination, and shipments
  • Communicate directly with various internal and external partners to understand, define, and communicate progress on projects
  • Develop firm understanding of internal lab processes and databases
  • Build and maintain effective relationships which create a high level of trust across multiple functions at Tempus
  • Respond to inquiries by phone, email and in person quickly and professionally

Qualifications:

  • 4 year college degree, preferably in Biological Sciences or similar
  • At least 2 years of experience in an operations or project management related role
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills; able to communicate across functions and teams
  • Strong organizational skills and previous project management experience (i.e. familiar with gantt charts and other organizational tools)
  • Highly attention to detail and ability to complete tasks on time with a high degree of accuracy
