UW faculty and staff also enjoy outstanding benefits, professional growth opportunities and unique resources in an environment noted for diversity, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits and natural beauty. All of which has allowed the UW to be nationally recognized as a “Great College to Work For” for six consecutive years.
The Division of Medical Oncology in the Department of Medicine has an outstanding opportunity for a full-time Research Coordinator.
The purpose of this position is to promote the research objectives of the Melanoma/RCC Program in the Division of Oncology. This position works with Division of Medical Oncology faculty to facilitate investigator-initiated and pharmaceutical-sponsored clinical trials, identify research problems and design hypotheses to be tested. This position is responsible for independently designing and implementing multiple research projects to test the hypotheses in human subjects and facilitate laboratory correlative work.
This position is constantly required to integrate information from multiple sources to ensure that all research proposals meet the requirements of the University, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and the study sponsor. This position develops procedures that ensure that all research meets or exceeds these requirements while expeditiously furthering the research objectives of the Melanoma/RCC Program. There are multiple resources available within the University system (e.g. Grant and Contract Services, Institutional Review Board, Office of Industry Relations) to help in this process, but ultimately the work must be done independently and in a resourceful manner to expedite the Division's research objectives. This position is also responsible for organizing and facilitating sponsor-initiated, FDA-initiated, and institution-initiated audits of study data. Finally, this position interacts with representatives from pharmaceutical companies, health care providers, and terminally ill patients in a manner that well-represents the University of Washington and its associated institutions (FHCRC and SCCA).
The mission statement of the University of Washington Medical Center states that the Medical Center serves as a research resource, providing an environment in which clinical research may be conducted. This position is essential to that mission. This position provides significant contributions to research development, implementation, and analysis for the Melanoma/RCC Program in the Division of Oncology. It is responsible for overseeing the management of up to 15 clinical trials, the majority of which provide significant financial support for the Division of Oncology. In the Melanoma/RCC group, this translates into $1.5 million dollars.
This position must be able to work independently under administrative direction on multiple research projects without benefit of written policies or procedures. This position requires daily interaction with pharmaceutical sponsors, physicians, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, other health care personnel (e.g. nurses, patient care coordinators, insurance companies), and patients. Up to 15 projects will be in progress simultaneously, with the expectation of additional projects in the future.
