The Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) Operations Program Manager is a seasoned, experienced professional who uses advanced administrative concepts and skills to resolve complex issues and to manage, plan and administer the operations of a 25+ person team of faculty, staff, and students working on research, policy and advocacy activities in the US, Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Responsibilities include: providing comprehensive operational and administrative management support on grants from donors including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID); supporting the Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) Associate Director with proposal development, budget management, donor reporting, grant deliverable tracking, and communications; working directly with collaborating financial and contracting departments within UCSF to update MEI-wide policies and standard operating procedures, supervising one Operations Program Assistant, leading the planning and execution of high-profile convenings, providing comprehensive logistical and human resource support to project leads for successful implementation of project activities, supporting business development activities, and ensuring operational and administrative consistency across the MEI. The MEI Operations Program Manager often works on highly complex issues where analysis of situations requires an in-depth evaluation of variable factors; she/he/they will be required to adapt and implement frequently changing policies, procedures, and approaches based on discrete financial, operational or administrative circumstances.
The MEI team operates at a very fast pace, with multiple simultaneous projects occurring at all times and in many countries. The MEI Operations Program Manager must therefore bring excellent project management, flexibility, problem solving and critical thinking skills to this position. She/he/they must be a self-starter, able to adapt to rapidly changing priorities able to work autonomously and take ownership of projects where the pathway to results may be unclear, think creatively to problem-solve situations that may not have a precedent, and exercise good judgment in selecting appropriate methods and techniques for obtaining results.
