A full-time Clinical Research Coordinator II (CRC II) is needed in the Laboratory for Neuropsychiatry and Neuromodulation (Division of Neurotherapeutics), a multidisciplinary group under the direction of Dr. Joan Camprodon conducting a variety of clinical and basic studies using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and other neurotherapeutic interventions. Additionally, this group manages a myriad of neuroimaging studies and runs the MGH Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) clinical service, treating various neuropsychiatric populations.
The CRC II works closely with investigators, study staff and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to implement and oversee studies and submit appropriate regulatory forms. The CRC II conducts clinical and neuropsychological assessments, and works closely with study subjects by coordinating and administering, scoring, and evaluating study questionnaires/interviews.
In addition, the CRC II is directly involved in conducting TMS, tDCS and MRI experiments, as well as helping to run the MGH TMS clinical service and treating neuropsychiatric patients with TMS. The CRC II also performs neuroimaging and behavioral data analysis, quality control data checks, compiles and maintains clinical research data, patient files, regulatory binders and study databases. Moreover, the CRC II position also helps produce reports, scholarly clinical research abstracts, posters, and manuscripts for publication. Extensive training is available in brain stimulation, neuroimaging, clinical research, neuroscience, experimental and writing skills.
The position requires high level technical and analytical skills, strong research and writing skills, good organizational and interpersonal skills to interact with patients, and the ability to work independently.
Bachelor's degree with at least 1 year of related research experience required. Strong interpersonal skills a must, and experience with clinical populations is preferred. Candidates must be organized with attention to detail, able to work independently, good writing and editing skills, and solid PC or Mac computer skills. Experience with statistical and neuroimaging analysis (SPM, FSL, Freesurfer) or computer programming (Unix, Python, C, MATLAB) a significant plus.
