We are an innovative research entity looking for highly organized, detail-oriented and enthusiastic candidates to support the patient-oriented research portfolio of the Center. We anticipate developing new studies and research directions, so ideal candidates will be able to adapt to a fast-paced environment with evolving responsibilities, workloads and work schedules.
Under the direction of the Director of Research Implementation and the Director of Research, Administrative and Clinical Operations, the Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) will be responsible for coordinating the day-to-day activities of a new laboratory-based research protocol focused on examining the health benefits of breaking up periods of prolonged sedentary behavior. Collaborating with a variety of institutional and Center-wide teams, as well as performing independently, s/he will be responsible for all participant recruitment, enrollment, compensation and data collection activities. As part of the study protocol, the Clinical Research Coordinator will assist in the creation and maintenance of data collection systems, provision of food for the controlled diet portion of the study and training study subjects in the proper use of study devices, including blood pressure and glucose monitors, as well as accelerometer devices. Further, the Clinical Research Coordinator will assist in blood specimen collection procedures and may participate in phlebotomy training.
At CBCH our goal is to work together as a collective (faculty, admin, and staff) to advance shared values and goals.
Candidates should anticipate the need for flexible work hours to attain recruitment goals and complete the 9-hour study visits successfully. Candidates may expect work hours to be scheduled between 7:00 am and 7:30 pm and occasionally on weekends, varying from week-to-week depending upon study visit and recruitment needs. Candidates should be comfortable in a team-oriented, collaborative work culture with frequent bilingual interactions in both English and Spanish with study participants, collaborating investigators, and clinic personnel.
Candidates will be expected to work on more than one project and will perform other duties as required.
