Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator (Bilingual)

At the ALBA Language Neurobiology laboratory in the UCSF Memory and Aging Center (MAC), we study how language is organized into brain networks across the lifespan. Our group researches how language skills and brain regions are impacted by neurological conditions and how they reorganize in response. Our multidisciplinary team correlates behavioral research with multimodal neuroimaging techniques to understand the neural underpinning of higher cognitive functions such as speech, language, and memory. In particular, we research two syndromes: Primary Progressive Aphasia and Dyslexia.

The UCSF Dyslexia Center aims to eliminate the debilitating effects of developmental dyslexia while supporting the relative strengths of each individual. We develop best practice protocols to assess and diagnose children with dyslexia through a multimodal cognitive and neuroimaging program. We work closely with schools and educators to develop early interventions and educational strategies to help children with dyslexia thrive.

Under the supervision of a Clinical Research Supervisor or Principal Investigator (PI), the Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator (Assistant CRC) will perform entry-level duties related to the support and coordination of clinical studies in the Dyslexia Center and may receive training and development to prepare and advance for journey-level work at the next level within the series. This particular Assistant CRC will work with non-English speaking monolingual populations who speak Spanish, one of several languages spoken in East Africa, the Philippines, and/or other languages.

The Assistant CRC may be responsible for the coordination of one or more single or multi-site, active or follow-up trials; help prepare protocols for study initiation; help design flow sheets, data forms, and source documents; gather and interpret medical, surgical and laboratory data regarding clinical trial subjects; may apply an understanding of inclusion/exclusion eligibility criteria for protocols; help recruit, enroll, register, schedule and retain study subjects; record protocol-specific treatments and assure collection and shipment of samples; assist research personnel to keep patients on study schedules; complete study forms to submit to sponsors and/or appropriate agencies; collect, enter and clean data into study databases, maintaining data quality; assist with data analysis; assist with the preparation of reports and tables; attend team meetings. 

Please Note: This is a full-time 1-year limited appointment because of the funding source lasting less than 18 months.
