University of California San Francisco
Location: San Francisco, California
Internal Number: 74788BR
The Clinical Research Coordinator will work directly with our study PI, Dr. Chow, in the Department of Neurology on several funded projects. This role will require the Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) to act with the utmost respect and confidentiality in their work with different populations of participants, including individuals who may be neurologically impaired and/or living with HIV infection. The Clinical Research Coordinator will be required to work onsite at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, UCSF Parnassus and China Basin. The Clinical Research Coordinator must be comfortable with being trained to administer injections to participants. The hours for this role may vary depending on the week. Work from home will be allowed when there is no need for the Clinical Research Coordinator to be onsite with patients.
The Clinical Research Coordinator will independently coordinate and be accountable for the overall administration, execution, and operational management or several neuro-infectious diseases and HIV neurology-related research studies, with oversight from a Clinical Research Supervisor and/or Principal Investigator (PI). The Coordinator will work as an integral member of several clinical research teams for clinical trials, observational, and translational research studies, which will require the Coordinator to work collaboratively with multiple partners, including international colleagues, to coordinate and implement studies.
The Coordinator's duties may include, but will not be limited to supporting the management and coordinating the tasks of single or multiple clinical research studies, including clinical, pharmacy, and laboratory operations, depending on their size and complexity; act as intermediary between services and departments while overseeing data and specimen management; manage and report on study results; create, clean, update, and manage databases and comprehensive datasets and reports; coordinate staff work schedules, assist with training of Assistant CRCs, and assist Clinical Research Supervisor and/or PI with oversight of other research staff; manage Investigator's protocols in the Institutional Review Board online system, as well as renewals and modifications of protocol applications and the implementation of new studies; participate in the review and writing of protocols to ensure institutional review board approval within University compliance; help assure compliance with all relevant regulatory agencies; oversee study data integrity; implement and maintain periodic quality control procedures; interface with departments to obtain UCSF approval prior to study initiation; maintain all regulatory documents; report study progress to investigators; participate in any internal and external audits or reviews of study protocols; ensure all study expectations are met; and perform other duties as assigned.
For international collaborations, the Coordinator may need to work across time zones, requiring the Coordinator to be flexible for early morning and late evening calls with international partners in Uganda, India, and elsewhere. The Coordinator will create agendas and content for weekly update calls with international partners. The Coordinator will assist international staff with operational activities, including facilitating contact between PIs and study site, supporting data query resolution, audits, and internal and external monitoring.
