Clinical Research Coordinator
The Mount Sinai Integrative Sleep Center is a newly created center with a hub of both clinical and basic science research across many facets of sleep. We have an opening for an NIH-funded full time clinical research coordinator to assist in clinical research projects related to sleep apnea and cognition and risk for Alzheimer disease, including brain imaging and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers. Responsibilities in the position primarily include creative approaches to recruitment and management of human research subjects. Other responsibilities include the management of institutional review board (IRB) protocols, data analysis, and administration of tests of actigraphy, cognition/memory, and psychomotor vigilance. The candidate should have a Bachelor’s degree, ideally in science/engineering or psychology and have excellent interpersonal skills. Experience with statistical analyses in programs such as Matlab, SPSS, or SigmaPlot is preferred, but not mandatory. Additionally, experience with collecting and analyzing human EEG/polysomnography and brain PET/MRI data would be ideal. Superior candidates will be highly organized, flexible, and eager to learn. Interested applicants should send a resume and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to Dr. Andrew Varga at [email protected].
