The clinical research coordinator (CRC) team lead oversees and manages the day-to-day operations of research projects and clinical studies conducted in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology. The team lead will serve as the first point of contact regarding all operational aspects of clinical studies, ensuring that studies are conducted per department SOPs, in accordance with clinical protocols, and as per institutional and other regulatory guidelines. This role will ensure study coordination coverage for all study visits and will be responsive to study inquiries from patients, clinicians, and other OHSU study teams.
The successful candidate will have and maintain a working knowledge of FDA, DHHS and other agency guidelines that govern clinical research. The CRC team lead will support investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored clinical research studies across Diagnostic Radiology. Major department projects include: first-in-human testing of a novel device for prostate cancer diagnosis; novel MR imaging techniques to evaluate drug delivery in pancreatic cancer; use of novel imaging agents in conjunction with PET/MRI to differentiate pseudoprogression from tumor progression in glioblastoma; and drug trials (phases 1-3) involving the use of novel radionuclides for precision targeting of cancer cells.
Prior study management and clinical research coordination skills are a plus. The team lead will be expected to exercise sound judgment in taking independent action and seek advice as appropriate; assist in process improvement efforts; demonstrate strong problem-solving skills; assist in training and providing oversight of junior staff; and assist leadership in the implementation of research program goals. The team lead does not maintain direct reporting responsibility for other study team members.
