Job Description

The Clinical Laboratory for Early Brain Injury Recovery at the Burke Neurological Institute is seeking applications for a full time clinical research coordinator position to coordinate studies that aim to optimize health in adults with cerebral palsy (CP) using exercise and nutritional interventions. The successful applicant will join a team whose mission is to develop and test effective health-related interventions for people with CP. Despite there being nearly one million adults with CP in the United States, there are few effective interventions to decrease impairment and optimize quality of life in adults with CP. Our ultimate goal is to have a brick and mortar exercise and wellness center for people with many types of chronic neurological disability. In the near term, we deploy our interventions virtually. The successful applicant will take responsibility, with mentorship, for organizing the study supplies, spearheading recruitment and enrollment of participants, and assisting with data collection, data verification, and analyses. The successful applicant will also be involved in maintaining our collaborations with outside organizations who assist with these studies.


The ideal applicant will have a passion for working with people with disabilities, expertise and enjoyment of organizing and collecting data, and the ability to work well in our team-based lab. Job responsibilities require:

  • Good communication skills
  • Proficiency with MS Office
  • Project management skills
  • Attention-to-detail in maintaining records of research activities and record databases.

The position is available immediately. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the position is filled. Applicants should be willing to commit to a 2 year appointment, which may be renewable. Salary will be commensurate with experience, and generous benefits will be offered.

How to Apply

To apply, interested candidates should complete the online application, upload a cover letter,  a resume/CV, and include three contacts for references.
