In its job announcement, the university said the new director will be “expected to devote part of his/her efforts to philanthropy to raise additional resources, and lead the faculty in the development of relevant and innovative research programs that are commensurate with the new space and other resources afforded by State support.
“The Director will also be responsible for ensuring that the Center is positioned to renew its (National Cancer Institute) designation by demonstrating strength in each of the six essential characteristics: visionary leadership, organizational capabilities, trans-disciplinary collaborations, cancer focus, institutional commitments, and physical space.”
Chairing the 10-member Search Advisory Committee is Dr. Margaret McFall-Ngai, director of the Pacific Biosciences Research Center. The committee will recommend finalists to Chancellor Robert Bley-Vroman, who in turn will recommend a selectee to UH President David Lassner.
Review of applications will begin Dec. 30, and will continue until the position is filled, the university said.
