Description

The successful applicant will interact with human subjects on an almost daily basis. This will involve contacting subjects by phone to determine eligibility and scheduling for study visits. In addition, the applicant will obtain consent for participation in studies; complete forms, questionnaires and/or basic neuropsychological tests with subjects; assist with motor evaluations; and shepherd subjects during their study visits. An excellent candidate for this position will have strong conversational and communication skills and be able to seamlessly engage new subjects and make them feel comfortable in the research environment. The applicant also will be responsible for data entry into study databases, maintaining Institutional Review Board (IRB) materials, and regulatory updates. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance and thus the successful applicant must be able to keep information and data collected during the study confidential. The position is renewable annually, depending on grant funding. This job will be filled as a level 1, or level 2, depending upon the successful candidate's competencies, education, and experience. Typically requires an Associate's degree or higher plus one year of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience for a level 1. Additional experience and/or education and competencies are required for higher level jobs. This is a fixed term appointment funded one year from date of hire with the possibility of refunding.
