Senior Finance Coordinator

Ariadne Labs is a joint center for health systems innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Our goal is to drive scalable solutions for better care at critical moments in people’s lives everywhere. Better care means better health outcomes, lower costs, and more actual caring. Critical means solving health systems failures that have major impact, typically touching people by the millions. Ariadne Labs currently has research programs in the areas of childbirth, surgery, palliative care, and primary health care.

The Ariadne Labs Finance team is responsible for maintaining financial operations and reporting under the two parent systems, including accounts payable & receivable, budgeting, financial planning and grants management. Led by the Director of Finance, the growing team includes two Assistant Directors of Research Administration, a Sr. Grants Manager, a Budget Administrator, two Grants Coordinators, and an Accounting Manager.

Under the supervision of the Accounting Manager, the Senior Finance Coordinator will provide assistance to the existing team and will perform diverse financial duties with accuracy and attention to detail.  The Senior Finance Coordinator will provide proactive and efficient customer service to internal and external clients.
