Here, you will be a part of leading-edge cancer research history that improves our cancer patients' treatment options, one trial at a time.
Do you have a passion for helping human kind?
As a member of our team, you will bring your dedication and expertise to collaborate on clinical trials and assist on research studies. You will provide support and service to faculty and staff conducting research. This includes coordination of staff support, provision of centralized systems, regulatory expertise, and quality assurance. Your work will support our mission of rapidly translating research discoveries into safe, effective treatments. The primary responsibilities include providing daily administrative support to the director of the Cardiac Imaging Research program on his academic activities as well as assisting research personnel on ongoing research projects.
Tasks include the following:
Assisting the Cardiac Imaging Research Director with his correspondence as well as communicating on his behalf (via telephone calls, email, business letters, and other professional communication), maintaining and/or creating investigators' curriculum vitae (CV) and other biographical documents (NIH biosketch, research support list, faculty annual report, list of past trainees), word processing, formatting, and proofreading to correct punctuation, spelling, and grammar for scientific writing projects (abstracts, manuscripts, reports, proposals) and visual presentations (PowerPoint slides, poster presentations), planning travel, meetings and events (coordinating travel details, scheduling attendees and room, ordering catering and other supplies, setting up A/V, writing the agenda and typing up minutes, and other needs), and attending to general office upkeep (ordering and organizing office supplies; arranging service calls with IT or facilities assistance/repair).
Research activities include extracting data from medical record review, data entry of clinical research data, creating study forms, and organizing study documentation under the direct supervision of the study coordinator, principal investigators, or sub-investigators. Supervised interaction with patients may be involved including screening for and recruiting prospective research subjects, scheduling study visits, escorting subjects during study visits, assisting with study procedures, and recording data study. Those who carry out these research activities will be educated on and comply with all federal, local, FDA, IRB, and HIPAA guidelines and regulations.
For highly motivated candidates, opportunities are available to attend educational lectures (Grand Rounds, workshops) and to conduct independent research and/or write articles/abstracts to be considered for publication in scholarly journals, under the mentorship of the PI or sub-investigators.
This is an entry-level position, well-suited for those looking for meaningful experience towards a career in medical, science, or health-related field.
