SF BUILD is looking for a full-time Program Assistant to provide administrative and logistical support to the NIH funded SF BUILD Project. The mission of SF BUILD is to enhance diversity of the biomedical research workforce by transforming classroom and research environments at SF State and UCSF into affirming and socially inclusive spaces where students, faculty, and staff can safely represent different backgrounds and perspectives. Our work is grounded by a psychosocial model developed by SF BUILD that validates the experiences and personal values of historically underrepresented groups in science to support their professional development as agents of change.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, purchasing items for SF BUILD projects from different accounts while keeping track of budget. Planning faculty and student travel to conferences, which include communicating with hotels, airlines and rental car agencies. In addition, they will be responsible for reimbursing students and faculty for expenses related to the grant. They will be responsible for producing and delivering documents to appropriate faculty or administrators for their approval.
The SF BUILD Administrative Assistant will work closely with the program coordinator to schedule and plan events for faculty and students. Since SF BUILD works closely with SF State and UCSF faculty, university administration, students and local communities, prior experience working with these groups, excellent communication skills, and experience navigating various projects is a must.
