Duties: The clinical research coordinator will be responsible for two studies at the Palliative and Advanced Illness Research (PAIR) Center focused on decision-making for seriously ill patients. The experienced coordinator will accomplish these efforts by leading (1) all aspects of a qualitative study to understand delivery of subspecialist palliative care at 11 hospitals nationally, requiring stakeholder buy-in, physician liaison, and solicitation of open-ended feedback on sensitive topics such as end-of-life care; and (2) day-to-day operations and recruitment of University of Pennsylvania Health System physicians to a study about physician-patient communication. In this work, the coordinator will be required to act autonomously in his/her decision-making, display excellent communication skills, and good judgment.

Under the supervision of the Assistant Director for Project Management at the PAIR Center, the coordinator's primary responsibilities will include: engaging physicians at multiple hospitals nationally, undertaking semi-structured telephone interviews with 200 physicians, developing coding frameworks and conceptual models, training junior staff on coding methods, adjudicating coding meetings, writing progress reports to funding agencies, IRB documentation and compliance, maintaining study databases, and assisting with the preparation of manuscripts. The coordinator will also participate in PAIR Center research planning and proposal development and provide administrative support for funding proposals, as needed.
