Job Description

Project Manager (two maternity leave cover positions), Medical Science

Are you an expert in Project Management? Are you ambitious and motivated to facilitate impactful national and international initiatives on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiometabolic disease? Then this position might be something for you.

You will join our Medical Science area, which is advancing research that enhances knowledge about health, wellbeing, and disease, with the potential to solve serious societal challenges and improve healthcare performance. There are three closely integrated departments within Medical Science that support basic discovery through translation and clinical care.

The two positions are temporary with an expected duration of 10 months. You will mainly work in the departments Translational Medicine and Clinical Medicine. As project manager you will have a key role in developing new strategic initiatives and grants within Medical Science but also related projects like organizing symposia and workshops or facilitating expert groups.

Your responsibilities

As a Project Manager in Medical Science you will support the development, coordination, assessment, and evaluation of new and existing initiatives. Your key tasks will be to help:

  • Develop and communicate detailed project plans and timelines;
  • Coordinate people and processes to ensure that our projects are delivered on time and to the highest standards;
  • Develop and maintain relationships with national and international partners, collaborators, and stakeholders;
  • Manage and facilitate workshops, seminars and working groups.

You should expect a diverse portfolio of projects of varying complexity and size. In one of the positions the key project will be to support the development of the new initiative about heart failure and in the other position a key project will be to support the development of new initiatives focused on the interactions of infectious disease and cardiometabolic disease.

Professional and Personal Qualifications

The ideal candidate is a structured and independent person with strong communication and teamwork skills and with at least 5 years of project management experience. You will have experience as a Project Manager / Consultant with large complex projects within health care or life-science.

Furthermore, you are expected to have:

  • Experience with planning of large projects involving multiple stakeholders;
  • A master's degree in business, life-science, or other relevant fields.
  • Experience with stakeholder management and risk assessment.
  • Experience with change management, implementation, and impact assessment.
  • The ability to manage several complex projects simultaneously.
  • Fluency in English, both oral and written.

Your colleagues would describe you as:

  • Professional, quality conscious, and impact oriented.
  • Ambitious, proactive, and with a structured approach to problem solving.
  • Able to provide a clear overview, without losing track of details.
  • Able to build strong relationships with good interpersonal skills.
  • A team player that thrives on succeeding together but also able to work independently.
