Careers

Position: Clinical Research Coordinator
Positions Available: 3

The Massachusetts General Hospital Dauten Family Center for Bipolar Treatment Innovation (formerly the Bipolar Clinic and Research Program) is seeking applicants for a Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) position. The aim of the program is to evaluate psychiatric and psychosocial treatments for bipolar disorder, to learn more about the causes and general course of this disorder, and to investigate the pathophysiology of the condition with neuroimaging and other biological markers. Our program participates in large-scale, multi-site, NIMH, industry, and privately-sponsored initiatives.

The CRC will manage and conduct a full range of research and clinical activities within the program. The CRC will assist in conducting clinical studies with the clinical and research staff. Responsibilities include structured patient interviews, patient recruitment, data collection and management, grant preparation, Institutional Review Board correspondence, phlebotomy (drawing blood), as well as other key administrative tasks. The CRC will also be offered the opportunity to assist with data analysis, neuroimaging (MRI), and preparation of poster presentations, symposiums, and manuscripts. The CRC will also answer triage phone calls, conduct phone screens, participate in case reviews to determine patient’s eligibility and make referrals. A key component of the position includes assisting in grant proposals for future clinical trials. The CRC will liaise with Research Management at Massachusetts General Hospital, the funding agency, as well as help prepare aspects of the proposal, such as the budget.

The primary research projects the CRC will work on may include, but are not limited to psychosocial interventions (e.g., mindfulness-based, cognitive behavioral, lifestyle changes), medication-based trials (e.g., new medications, dose-response, examination of side effects), online and mobile phone based studies, as well as a transcranial laser therapy study pilot testing a near infrared LED device.
