Clinical Research Coordinator I - Oncology

Philadelphia, PA, US, 19104

Job Type:

COLKET - Colket Translational Research Req ID: 26872

Shift: Days

Employment Status: AF - Active - Regular - Full Time

Job Summary

My lab is seeking a full-time Bachelor's level Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) to contribute to research studies focused improving cancer outcomes in adolescents/young adults (AYA) by targeting their treatment adherence. Please feel free to contact me with questions. Any interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV/resume, and contact information for 2-3 references to me at ...@email.chop.edu

The primary role of the CRC will be to coordinate a new, NIH-funded study that will use real-time mobile health approaches to understand and improve oral chemotherapy adherence in AYA with leukemia. There is currently funding for 2 years, and additional opportunities may be available after that time. Other ongoing projects/tasks include: (1) a mixed methods investigation of how families work together to manage multi-faceted cancer treatment demands (e.g., medications, diet, and exercise) and (2) a pilot study assessing the feasibility of using text messages to assess daily medication adherence in order to improve uptake of a standard of care.

These studies will provide the CRC with exposure to behavioral health research from study start up to finish (i.e., dissemination of abstracts/papers), as well as cover both observational and intervention research. The CRC will also receive training/mentorship in skills related to pediatric psycho-oncology and mHealth.
