EuCanImage H2020 Project Manager

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 04 May 2022

The Role:

A long-term Project Manager position to coordinate the operational, administrative and management activities of the H2020 EuCanImage project is offered at University of Barcelona (as part of the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine lab: BCN-AIM). The Project Manager will generally provide the ‘back office’ services required for successful project completion and will support the Project Coordinator in the overall coordination of the project.

Concretely, the Project Manager will:

  • Monitor the implementation of the project and the timely reporting and delivery of all project commitments to the EC.
  • Inform and advise project partners on financial and administrative rules, while ensuring the conformity with the relevant procedures.
  • Support the Project Coordinator in planning, producing, collecting and reviewing the deliverables and outcomes to ensure their timely delivery.
  • Provide management tools (e.g. guides, templates, etc.) for the consortium.
  • Monitor all contractual obligations (Grant Agreement, Consortium Agreement and other legal reference documents) and draft additional agreements.
  • Track all project related costs in collaboration with the UB Research Service (namely Fundació Bosch i Gimpera): distribution and transfer of funding, keeping records on spending and preparing financial reports for project funders and auditors.
  • Schedule project meetings; prepare agendas and circulate reference materials for the meetings and writing the minutes.
  • Engage in communication tasks related to the EuCanImage project. This includes content generation, as well as the management of online channels.
  • Support the BCN-AIM team members in their day-to-day communication, management and scientific activities.

The Project:

EuCanImage is a new large-scale international project (10 million Euros) funded by the European Commission to build a secure and federated imaging platform for next-generation artificial intelligence in oncology. The EuCanImage platform will be populated with a new data resource totalling over 25,000 single subjects, which will allow to investigate unmet clinical needs like never before, such as for the detection of small liver lesions and metastases of colorectal cancer, or for estimating molecular subtypes of breast tumours and pathological complete response. Moreover, the cancer imaging platform, built by leveraging the well-established Euro-BioImaging infrastructure, will be cross-linked to biological and health repositories through the European Genome-phenome Archive, allowing to develop multi-scale AI solutions that integrate organ-level, molecular and other clinical predictors into dense patient-specific cancer fingerprints. EuCanImage is a collaboration between world-renown experts in data management, machine learning, cancer imaging/radiomics, clinical oncology and technology transfer, across Europe and the US.

The Institution:

The University of Barcelona (UB), founded in 1450, is one of the oldest universities in Spain. It comprises a student body of 84,370 and 4,548 research staff members. With 73 undergraduate programs, 273 graduate programs and 48 doctorate programs, UB is the largest university in Barcelona and Catalonia. The UB is ranked the first Spanish university according to several rankings (QS World University Rankings 2018, ARWU/Shanghai Ranking 2018). It is particularly interested in fostering international relations and, for many years, has managed an average of 150 European projects per year. Since January 2010, Universitat de Barcelona is part of the prestigious League of European Universities Research (LERU). The candidate will join the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Lab (www.bcn-aim.org ), which is an integral part of the University of Barcelona’s Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. It is a young and dynamic research lab, highly active in international projects, and composed of 18 enthusiastic academics, researchers, students and research managers, with expertise in data science, machine/deep learning, biomedical informatics, biomedical ethics, and health-related applications.
