Clinical Research Coordinator I, Behavioral Medicine Program (Massachusetts General Hospital)
The Behavioral Medicine (BMED) Program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital is seeking a clinical research coordinator (CRC). The BMED Program is a multidisciplinary group with a longstanding commitment to conducting clinical research focused on developing, validating and disseminating psychosocial interventions that prevent and treat chronic illness. The CRC will be responsible for supporting a variety of behavioral intervention studies focused on the treatment and prevention of HIV both domestically and abroad. The CRC may collaborate with other members of the research team, faculty, and staff of the BMED Program, but will also be expected to take initiative and work well independently. Due to the time-or deadline-sensitive nature of many projects, the pace of work may be demanding at times. Other projects are long-term and require constant attention to prioritization.
In addition to assisting with project management, the CRC will also have a significant role with grant administration. Specifically, the CRC will help create and edit grant application budgets, draft/edit/format documents for grant applications, learn grant application systems, and upload applications. Finally, the CRC will assist with administrative tasks, such as corresponding with the institutional review board (IRB) and funding bodies (e.g. NIH), ordering supplies, and handling expenses.
