I really enjoy the diversity of teams and clients the CRA role provides, in addition to the ability to speak with so many different key opinion leaders across the country. Progressing through to a Senior CRA, and now acting as Lead CRA for one of our largest gastroenterology studies, I'm excited at the continued opportunities for success and growth in clinical leadership.

Job description

Candidates must live in CA, NV, WA, AZ, CO, OR

Whether you’re beginning or continuing your career as a CRA, this role is an ideal stepping-stone. You’ll have training and development to plan and progress your career in the direction you choose. And you won’t do it alone – you will have dedicated mentoring and receive structured quarterly reviews on performance, promotion and bonus awards.

Award winning and innovative, we’ll give you access to cutting-edge in-house technology, allowing you to work on global projects but with a regional / home state travel remit, so no need for national travel in certain countries. You’ll be building a smart and flexible career with no limits.

While projects vary, your typical responsibilities might include:

  • Performing site selection, initiation, monitoring and close-out visits, plus maintaining appropriate documentation
  • Supporting the development of a subject recruitment plan
  • Establishing regular lines of communication plus administering protocol and related study training to assigned sites
  • Evaluating the quality and integrity of site practices – escalating quality issues as appropriate
  • Managing progress by tracking regulatory submissions, recruitment, case report form (CRF) completion, and data query resolution

You will need to be comfortable collaborating and communicating with a variety of colleagues and customers. Ideally, you will also have a good basic knowledge of applicable clinical research regulatory requirements.

You should have:

  • A Bachelor's degree in a health care or other scientific discipline or educational equivalent
  • Successful completion of a CRA Trainee Program or at least three months of on-site monitoring experience. 2 years of clinical research coordinator experience strongly preferred.
  • Alternatively, you should have an equivalent combination of education, training and experience

If you want to make an impact in the global research market, where we are working to make a real difference in patient health, we ask you to apply now and join our team
