Job description

Clinical Research Coordinator Associate (50% FTE)

Stanford University

Job Number:

The Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR, in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University is seeking a Clinical Research Coordinator Associate (50% FTE) to perform duties related to the coordination of clinical studies in Dr. Tamar Green's lab.

Dr. Green's research focuses on pediatric clinical neuroscience, with an emphasis on neurogenetic and neurodevelopmental disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorders. The principal aim of the research program is to uncover the effects of genetic variation and associated downstream pathways on human brain development. In contrast to traditionally starting with the cognitive and behavioral symptoms that define ADHD and autism spectrum disorders, the Green Lab takes a “genetics first” approach and studies children with neurogenetic syndromes who present with neurodevelopmental disorders. Using a combination of genetic, imaging, and behavioral assessments, the Green Lab aims to contribute to the understanding of abnormalities across “idiopathic” neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and cognitive dysfunction (learning disorders and intellectual disability).

  • Serve as primary contact with research participants, sponsors, and regulatory agencies. Coordinate studies from startup through close-out.
