  • You have the road warrior thing nailed and enjoy the flexibility to work from home when you can

  • Good Clinical Practice/ICH Guidelines, Good Laboratory Practices and HIPAA requirements are music to your ears, not swear words.

  • An on-site visit revealed some issues – no problem; you have the charm & negotiation skills to turn it around and get that investigator to do something he/she doesn’t want to.

  • Along with the Project Management Team, ensure procedures are in place to manage patient recruitment strategies to increase patient enrollment into the trial (e.g., investigator and research nurse meetings, update newsletters, advertising, letters to GPs)

  • Review all adverse and serious adverse events and ensure events are routed through the established and proper study specific procedure from event onset to closure. Ensure sites are notified as appropriate and that all project established procedures are complied with

  • Help to organize Ethics/IRB committee submissions with follow through to ensure successful outcome
