Req: R0004256
Opportunities for cancer patients to enroll in clinical trials within the Cancer Center, at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, are increasing. In order to meet the needs of our patients, the Cancer Center's Office of Clinical Research (CC OCR) is looking for Clinical Research Coordinators-Non-licensed (CRC-NL) to assist with the coordination and management of clinical trials in cancer.

Clinical Research Coordinators, Non-Licensed, work closely with study subjects and other research staff and are involved in most steps of the research trial process. They function under the Principal Investigator's medical license and cannot perform any tasks that by state or local law require a medical license to perform. They work independently and have the authority to adapt methods and procedures to meet the needs of the clinical trial. They are focused on the long term goals of clinical research trial and process.

To be considered for the Clinical Research Coordinator level, candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree and one year of clinical research experience.

To be considered for the Intermediate level, candidates must have at least four years of clinical research experience. A related graduate degree may substitute for two years of experience. Clinical Research Coordinator (CCRC) and/or Clinical Research Associate (CCRA) certification is required within one year of eligibility.

To be considered for the Clinical Research Coordinator Trainee level, candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree. To be promoted, trainees must demonstrate a basic understanding of the clinical research process and the regulations, both federal and local, governing the conduct of clinical research.

Successful Candidates must have the ability to manage multiple clinical trials simultaneously; ability to interact with patients, family, physicians and ancillary personnel, as well as research committees; sophisticated written/verbal communication skills; competency managing complex projects; meticulous attention to detail; knowledge of clinical research, human subjects research ethics, and IRB procedures; proficient knowledge of medical terminology and proven ability to work independently or as part of a team, as well as the ability to work with senior leaders to accomplish goals. Proficiency in MS Office (Outlook, Word, and Excel) is required.

This position is restricted and contingent upon the continuation of funding.

This position will remain open until filled.
