About the Job
The Vice President of Laboratory Operations will establish and lead operations for a new line of business at Foundation Medicine (FMI). This person will have the opportunity to work in a “green field” -- setting vision and design, and leading implementation of a comprehensive operations strategy that supports this new portfolio of products, focused on improving blood-based cancer diagnostic capabilities in areas such as cancer detection, minimum residual disease and other related applications. This role is responsible for establishing not only a high-volume, high-efficiency lab strategy, but also for setting a strategy that enables effective subsequent externalization. This role requires expertise, creative and strategic thinking and excellent communication skills. This team is comprised of talent from across the Roche ecosystem, including Roche Diagnostics, Roche Pharma and FMI, operating as a single unit. This role contributes to the overall development and delivery of program strategy, provides insights for decision-making, and leads operations initiatives, and will be a core member of the leadership team.
Regular onsite work at a designated FMI location is an essential function of the role.
