The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) will join the Radiology CRC Core within the UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. The Radiology CRC Core is a team of personnel that provide expertise in conducting clinical research studies, including study setup, execution, management, Institutional Review Board (IRB) submissions, clinical research rates, and other research-related activities.
The CRC will perform independently or with general direction at the fully operational journey level of the series to execute, manage, and coordinate research protocols, as directed by the Clinical Research Supervisor and/or Principal Investigator (PI).
Duties may include, but will not be limited to supporting the management and coordinating the tasks of single or multiple clinical research studies, depending on their size and complexity; coordination, recruitment and enrollment of research subjects; data collection, data entry, data transfers, and data management; act as intermediary between services and departments; assist with training of Assistant CRCs and other CRC team members, and assist Clinical Research Supervisor and/or PI with oversight of other research staff; other duties as assigned.
This work may involve travel between different imaging centers at multiple UCSF campuses as well as interacting with study physicians, researchers, technologists and patients. Studies that the CRC may be involved with include both investigator-initiated and industry-initiated clinical trials. The individual may be assigned a variety of studies within the various clinical sections of Radiology such as Abdominal Imaging, Breast Imaging, Cardiac & Pulmonary Imaging, Interventional Radiology, Molecular Imaging & Therapeutics, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology, Neurointerventional Radiology, and Pediatric Radiology. The Core also collaborates on studies with investigators in other departments such as neurology, endocrinology, oncology, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, and the UCSF HDFC Cancer Center.
