Clinical Research Coordinator
The responsibilities of the Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) position are varied and involve all phases of human imaging research.
This includes working on multiple clinical studies with an interdisciplinary team of study investigators, clinical research and/or patient care coordinators, nursing staff, PET/MRI technologists and researchers from the Martinos Center, MGH and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Specifically, the position involves study recruitment, enrollment (screening, scheduling), administrative/regulatory protocol coordination including IRB protocol submissions, quality assurance and monitoring, and working with different patient populations.
The CRC will also be involved in the management, planning phase/study initiation of new protocols (IRB submissions, amendments, administrative work to set up study onsite at Martinos, etc.) and closing out completed clinical research studies.
The position primarily involves working at a computer but includes participating in human subject interaction both at the Martinos Center and in other areas of the hospital, including in an MRI scanner. Flexible working hours are occasionally required due to limitations of accessing research instrumentation in clinical areas (generally in the evenings, but, in rare occasions, on the weekends as well).
PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Coordinate recruitment and enrollment of subjects in conjunction with clinical collaborators. This includes communicating with study subjects and other members of the study team.
- Maintain research data, patient files, regulatory binders and study databases.
- Communicating with the IRB for regulatory submissions.
- Coordinate with staff (PET/MRI technologists, nursing staff, MDs) at the Martinos Center to set up subjects in the MRI and PET/MRI scanning environment (i.e. scheduling scanner time, requesting radiotracer production/dose orders, requesting port access and MD coverage, scheduling exam rooms, currier service, etc.).
- Excellent organizational, oral and written communication skills
- Detail oriented, creative, able to maintain accurate records
- High degree of professionalism, ability to interact with study subjects and clinical collaborators
- Capable of handling confidential information with discretion
- Able to work both independently and as part of an integrated research team
- Able to prioritize multiple tasks and handle fluctuating priorities and deadlines
- Strong computer skills
- Bachelor’s degree required.
