EU-ITN project manager in rare disease research

The de Duve Institute (UCLouvain) seeks a project manager for the administration and organisation of the EU funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network V.A. Cure.

The European V.A. Cure network aims to uncover core mechanisms of the initiation and maintenance of Vascular Anomalies and to leverage this information to establish novel therapeutic strategies. The research and training network unites 9 European laboratories and companies, and will train 14 PhD students, over a period of 4 years.

The successful candidate will work directly with the coordinator of the network, Prof. Miikka Vikkula, in the Human Genetics research group of the de Duve Institute (Brussels, www.deduveinstitute.be). The project manager will be responsible for the administrative, organizational, financial and scientific aspects of the network together with the coordinator. Close interactions with the participating partner institutions and the European Commission will be required.

Responsibilities/Tasks

The project manager will have the following responsibilities in cooperation with the project coordinator:

- Manage the V.A. Cure project, and act as the main contact person for all partners and PhD students.

- Establish a Data Management Plan and maintain the data management system.

- Ensure that all project deliverables and milestones are fulfilled in time.

- Prepare scientific, managerial and financial reports for the European Commission.

- Coordinate the organisation and logistics of meetings, training days and a conference.
