The Research Coordinator will be trained in all facets of the research program and will be able to flex between the multiple projects within the research program. The incumbent must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and confidence in speaking with family members, patients, and clinical personnel. The incumbent must be a team player.
3 years of experience in a clinical research setting is required in addition to the educational requirement. An equivalent combination of relevant education and experience may be considered.
