Position Summary:

The All of Us University of Wisconsin (AoU-UW) Research Program Manager (RPM) is a critical position on a team of more than 20 members implementing the All of Us Research Program, a precision medicine initiative supported by the NIH. The RPM will be directly involved in the day-to-day activities required to successfully operationalize and conduct this project at UW. The team has a diverse staffing model serving on- and off-campus partner sites. The RPM will work in close coordination with leads across the program to oversee many aspects of recruitment/enrollment communication, staff training, and ongoing collaboration with site partners in inpatient and outpatient and community settings.

The RPM attends NIH site manager meetings and is the sole recipient of specialized communications, so is responsible for communicating these frequent updates to PIs and all study personnel. The RPM will represent the site team on national onboarding and planning calls associated with the human subjects' research and data collection activities and other compliance activities. The RPM will communicate regularly and collaborate with individuals in the All of Us Wisconsin lead site (Marshfield Clinic) and partner sites (currently including the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and Gunderson Clinic in Lacrosse).

The AoU-UW team has developed and adopted values which include empathy; community; equity; resourcefulness; accountability; and motivation. Our commitment to conduct community-engaged, equitable research in precision health drives our ambitious goal to partner with 100,000 participants in Wisconsin. The AoU initiative requires a high level of creativity because continuous improvement and change is the norm. The RPM role requires a can-do attitude, openness to new challenges, optimistic/collaborative outlook, active listening complemented by action-orientation, and flexibility.

This RPM position is housed within the UW-Madison Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), home of the All of Us research program at UW.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
