CellCAN strives to fully exploit this potential by providing an unprecedented level of collaboration among all key players in the field of cell and
gene therapy by bringing together Canada's leading cell manufacturing centres and transversal cores (manufacturing product characterization, bioengineering, ethical and legal regulatory policy) into a common seal of quality for the benefit of Canadian patients. To fulfill this mission, CellCAN is currently looking for a Scientific Knowledge Manager.

The Scientific Knowledge Manager may also be asked to:

  • Coordinate the work of certain working groups (ex. Cell Manufacturing Working Group) and ensure the appropriate follow‐up.
  •  Represent the Organization at scientific conferences or to various stakeholders, specifically in the West part of Canada. 
  •  Contribute to the scientific content of educational activities or dissemination tools.
  •  Supply content for CellCAN’s website, intended for both specialists and the general public.
  •  Contribute to the drafting of the annual report.

Skill sets:

  • Organisational skills;

  • Tolerance for ambiguity.

Required experience:

  • Graduate degree in Health Sciences, ideally related to the regenerative medicine and cell therapy field;

  • Bilingual (English and French).

Mandate Period:
Starting as soon as possible
Fixed term until March 2020 (possible renewal)
