The laboratory in the Clinical and Translational Research Unit (CTRU) at Stanford University is seeking an Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator to perform administrative support duties related to the collection and processing of human samples for clinical research studies. Work will be conducted under supervision of the CTRU Lab Manager. A heavy emphasis on attention to detail and ability to multitask efficiently and accurately will be required.
The CTRU lab is the focal point for hypothesis-driven research across multiple disciplines, and is instrumental in the design and discovery of biomarkers that help us comprehend the human body's physiology. The CTRU laboratory designs and collaborates on studies, both locally and globally, that are interested in the molecular basis for how biochemicals outside and within a single cell present and are characterized across various platforms in proteomics, immunology, genomics, and much more. The fundamental understanding and interpretation of this phenotyping can provide insight on an individual's chance of responding to various therapeutics.
