In addition to these responsibilities, this person will support the LCIRT team in developing strategic partnerships and joint ventures, pursuing public and private funding opportunities, teaching online courses, identifying and managing clients, and advancing the College’s and the Institute’s distinctive mission, programs, and services.

Experience in a lab setting is desirable.   The candidate must possess strong presentation, communication (written and spoken), and project management skills; be a self-starter; and manage complex, multifaceted programs and initiatives. Must be willing to travel and exhibit flexibility in scheduling beyond standard work hours and days. A flexible schedule is negotiable.
