Location: Boston, Massachusetts





Job Description:

Clinical Research Coordinator



The Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Unit (ID CRU), situated within the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital, plays a pivotal role in orchestrating diverse clinical trials. These trials contribute valuable findings in areas like vaccine development, innovative antifungal treatments, and exploration of long-term symptoms linked to COVID-19. In the year ahead, we look forward to implementing several new clinical trials, such as evaluating new therapies for Mycobacterium avium and Clostridioides difficile and exploring innovative methods for enhancing the durability of immunogenicity through vaccine administration.


The ID CRU is deeply devoted to improving health equity in our community. It is well known that clinical research has disproportionately under-recruited from Black, Asian, and Hispanic populations. This has led to challenges in distributing the benefits of research to the very people who may most benefit from it. We at the CRU aim to change that by putting health equity at the core of our trials and by collaborating with community leaders to engage in participatory care.


Our burgeoning team seeks mission-driven, intellectually curious, interactive, detail-oriented, and flexible members. A sense of humor is a must.


We anticipate our CRCs going on to pursue careers in medicine, public health, epidemiology, global health, and/or health policy research.


Interested candidates are encouraged to apply via www.massgeneral.org/careers.
