CLINICAL RESEARCH COORDINATOR II
LABORATORY FOR NEUROPSYCHIATRY AND NEUROMODULATION &
TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (TMS) CLINICAL SERVICE
MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL
Responsibilities: Full-time Clinical Research Coordinator II (CRC II) needed in the Laboratory for Neuropsychiatry and Neuromodulation at MGH and Harvard Medical School. We are a multidisciplinary group under the direction of Dr. Joan Camprodon, conducting clinical, translational and basic research with healthy and neuropsychiatric human populations, using neurotherapeutic interventions (TMS, tDCS, ECT, DBS, etc.), neuroimaging, EEG, behavioral and clinical methods. Additionally, our program includes the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) clinical service, which is tightly integrated with our research mission and where we treat 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 and patients by coordinating and administering, scoring, and evaluating study questionnaires/interviews. In addition, the CRC II is directly involved in conducting TMS, tDCS, MRI and EEG experiments, and can participate in the TMS clinical service applying TMS treatments to patients. 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.
Qualifications: Bachelor's degree with at least 1 year of related research experience required. This position would be suitable for an applicant with a background in neuroscience, psychology or cognitive science. Applicants with strong technical backgrounds in engineering, computer science or mathematics and an interest in applying these skills to neuroscience are encouraged to apply. 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 required. Applicants with a strong background in programming (Unix, Python, MATLAB, R) and experience with statistical analysis software (R, SPSS, Stata) will be given high priority. Experience with neuroimaging analysis (SPM, FSL, Freesurfer, 3dSlicer, TrackVis) or psychological task design software (Presentation, EPrime, Psychophysics Toolbox) a significant plus.
