Project Manager for NIH funded clinical trial
We are hiring a full-time research manager (with benefits) for a NIH-funded research project at Kent State University and University Hospitals of Cleveland. The Serenity Study is an investigation of stress management for high blood pressure. We have an immediate opening. The position will last for at least one year and may be renewed. The position will require car travel between Kent and Cleveland.
The ideal candidate is someone with a BA/BS in psychology or a related field or higher. Previous experience with managing large scale research studies (i.e., clinical trials) is preferred. Skills in SPSS and manuscript preparation are viewed favorably as opportunities to use them may arise towards the end of the grant. The research manager will be responsible for day-to-day operational procedures in running the clinical trial, across four major domains: (1) leadership, (2) science, (3) finance, and (4) compliance. For the leadership domain, the manager will oversee the implementation of the research design and provide guidance to Kent study staff. For the science, the manager will be responsible for leading recruitment, enrollment, and monitoring of human subjects. This includes processes involved with data collection, data management, and quality assurance, such as compiling reports, coordinating meetings, and completing requests for the Data Safety and Monitoring board. For finance, they will assist in purchasing, monitoring monthly reports of grant-related financial transactions, reconciling grant charges against original purchase orders and receipts, monitoring spending relative to the original budget, and working with the site Principal Investigator and the departmental grant manager to re-budget funds, if necessary, to accomplish the original aims. For compliance, the manager will be responsible for communicating with all study personnel across multiple study sites to ensure research compliance training is up to date, the regulatory binder is current, and all mandatory reporting to the National Institute of Health and any other agencies is performed by required deadlines.
