We're Hiring! Research Project Administrator

We are seeking an experienced research coordinator to lead recruitment efforts for MRI and PET studies of aging. We are preparing to launch a longitudinal neuroimaging study targeting early detection of Alzheimer's disease, which involves cognitive testing, 2 PET scans, and 1 MRI scan both at baseline and at a 3-year follow-up. Ideally, this candidate will have substantial human subjects research experience as a full-time research assistant, masters, or Ph.D. student. This leadership position could be a good fit for someone who loves research, wants to maintain a career in research, but is not pursuing a traditional academic research track at this time. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Responsibilities include

  1. Coordinating advertising efforts (e.g. print, virtual, radio) and community outreach including public research presentations and other promotional events.
  2. Explaining the goals of the research to potential participants including descriptions of possible risks and benefits
  3. Performing phone screens and overseeing scheduling
  4. Performing neurophysiological assessments.
  5. Managing a team of research assistants to ensure consistent testing procedures and messaging about the study

The ideal candidate will be highly organized, will understand the science that motivates the study, will be a clear communicator. Previous experience working with older adult populations is a plus but is not required. Spanish language competency is a plus but is not required.

Please submit your application via WorkDay and send your application (CV, motivation letter, and contact details of three academic referees) to anneberry@brandeis.edu
