Reporting to the Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Data, with a dotted line to the Chief of Staff, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences (COHS) IT Leader position is a new and challenging role that is expected to be equal parts builder, visionary and strategic partner. As a strategic partner, this role has broad responsibilities that require exemplary leadership and relationship skills at the level of being a role model for peers and COHS IT department employees. As such, the IT Leader will work collaboratively and create strong relationships with the Office of Vice Chancellor of Health Sciences, Dean’s Office leadership in each of the four schools, Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute leadership, and leadership in associated research units.
In addition, this position is expected to be a strong partner with the campus Office of Information Technology and UCI Health Information Services leadership. As a visionary, this position must establish the philosophy, objectives and standards for the use of technology in the college. This includes planning long-range facility expansions and computing transitions, partnering with campus and health IT to leverage existing enterprise services (and build new ones), incorporating research computing advances into COHS, and working closely with UCI Health and the Office of Research to make clinical data accessible to researchers in a secure manner. Developing and implementing the strategy around infrastructure and software long-range planning to support COHS school objectives, while ensuring compatibility with campus-wide computing initiatives, is critical. As a builder, the position will be responsible to consolidate IT functions across COHS into a new College IT Services (“CIS”) department. This effort requires selling the vision and leveraging strategic partnerships in order to make CIS effective as a service shared across COHS. The position will ensure reliable IT service delivery reliability for administrative, research, educational and instructional information systems across the College. In addition, this position is expected to recommend and manage the COHS IT budget; ensure appropriate cybersecurity and compliance measures in alignment with UCI Health policies and practices and in coordination with the overall security strategy for Health Sciences and campus; and represent COHS IT needs with outside technology vendors, in campus School IT Director meetings and other venues as required.
