Job Description:

GENERAL SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW STATEMENT:


Dr. Hamed Khalili of the Massachusetts General Hospital Gastrointestinal Unit is in search of a Clinical Research Coordinator to work on the NIH Nutrition for Precision Health (NPH) study. NPH aims to enroll a cohort of individuals from the All of Us Research Program that is heterogeneous in demographics, clinical characteristics, health parameters and disease risk factors to inform more personalized nutrition recommendations. NPH will collect new data on multiple potential predictive factors and combine it with existing data in the All of Us database to develop a more complete picture of how individuals respond to different foods or dietary routines. Ultimately, we will use this research to develop algorithms to predict individual responses to food and dietary routines.


Dr. Khalili's research group includes a Clinical Research Project Manager and Clinical Research Coordinators who will be available for assistance, education, and guidance. Candidates from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences are encouraged to apply.
