Clinical Research Coordinator

I am recruiting a clinical research coordinator to help investigators conduct behavioral and multi-modal neuroimaging research examining both normal and abnormal brain development. Psychiatric disorders are increasingly understood as disorders of brain development, and our research seeks to situate mental illness in a developmental context. To do this, we use advanced multi-modal MRI imaging (functional, structural, metabolic) and detailed measures of behavior using digital phenotyping via smartphones. The position will draw on a wide range of skills and provide learning opportunities in diverse areas. Responsibilities will include assisting with: recruitment and acquisition of data for behavioral and multi-modal MRI data; advanced mobile phenomics and digital phenotyping via smartphones; image analysis; maintenance of regulatory documents and correspondence. Opportunities for data analysis and writing manuscripts abound. The candidate must have a passion for science, superb interpersonal skills, and technical affinity. Preference of an educational background in Neuroscience/Psychology or Biology/Premed with plans to pursue a graduate degree in psychology, neuroscience, or medicine. An interest in working directly with children, adolescents, and young adults affected by psychiatric symptoms is essential. Knowledge of IRB and human research protection regulations is desirable. While not required, experience with the Unix/Linux operating system and the statistical package R is a major asset. Above all, the applicant should demonstrate strong motivation, empathy, and excellent organizational skills.
