Congress has recently approved the establishment of the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). This new agency will fund groundbreaking biomedical research (high risk, high reward) to transform healthcare. The director has been chosen (Dr. Renee Wegrzyn), but the location has not. Texas is an ideal location for the new agency, as a centrally located life science hub with the largest military health complex in the U.S. and the most diverse population in the country. ARPA-H will primarily need to hire Program Managers to shape the biomedical programs that will promote the mission.
ARPA-H is now accepting resumes/CVs for Program Managers from people who have an idea for a research program. We are encouraging Texans to submit their interest. The link to the Program Manager position and application is here: https://arpa-h.gov/careers/program-managers/.
Additional information on ARPA-H is here.
