RESEARCH PROJECT MANAGER, School of Medicine, Geriatrics

Tracking Code4672 Job Description

The New England Centenarian Study (NECS) is the largest study of people aged 100 and older and their families in the world. We are a dynamic group of physician researchers, statisticians and post graduate research associates with varied interests regarding exceptional longevity. The study is based at the Boston University School of Medicine. There are several different studies all related to Centenarians and their offspring being conducted. The NECS believes that cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to have colleagues join us who support our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

The New England Centenarian Study recently received a NIH award titled 'Resilience and Resistance to Alzheimer's Disease in Centenarians and Offspring (RADCO)' and is looking to hire a half time Research Manager for this exciting study. Under the supervision of the Principal Investigators and the Senior Research Manager, the research manager's primary responsibilities include training and coordinating the efforts of the 10+ research assistants who perform recruitment, enrollment, and data collection of people ages 60 to 110+ years. The data collection emphasizes careful and detailed video home visit-based cognitive function assessments and therefore training in neuropsychological assessment and experience with training others in this realm is desirable.

Required Skills

Bachelor’s degree required, master’s degree preferred. Previous training or experience in neuropsychological assessment preferred; 1 yr experience on clinical project. Must be able to communicate well with colleagues, work as part of team.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
