The Food Allergy Science Initiative (FASI) is an emerging organization with an urgent mission: inspiring and supporting scientific leaders to collaborate across disciplines and institutions, to catalyze transformative research into food allergies. Founded in 2016, FASI was incubated at the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard and is now ramping up to become a fully independent organization. FASI’s work has attracted significant funding and prominent researchers from across the country. FASI is now working with 18 different labs and close to 100 scientists.
FASI is seeking a highly skilled grants professional to become its first Grants Manager. This is an exciting opportunity to be one of the first members of a small, dynamic team working to support research to advance transformative evidence-based diagnostics, prevention and treatments for millions of adults and children living with food allergies.
Food allergies are a severe public health threat faced by millions worldwide, affecting 32 million in the U.S. alone. Very little is known about the science behind these allergies, and diagnostics and treatments remain limited. FASI has formed an interdisciplinary team of highly respected, top-tier scientists to solve this problem.
The Grants Manager will be responsible for establishing and maintaining scalable, flexible grants management systems, both for grants awarded by FASI and for those it receives. The successful candidate will be results-focused and team-oriented, able to excel in a fast-track environment. They will enjoy creating and managing systems that serve end users and advance the organization’s mission and will bring the skills to independently generate best practices for project operation, tracking, and reporting, facilitating communication and deliverables between multiple internal and external stakeholders. Because this is a startup, this is an evolving position that requires flexibility.
