The CRU is accepting applications for the following position(s):

Clinical Projects Lead

The Clinical Projects Lead supports the start-up and management of investigator-initiated clinical trials.

One such trial is for patients with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by the selective death of motor neurons within the brain, brainstem and spinal cord.

Denervation of neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) is one of the hallmarks of ALS and this trial will test a therapy aimed at stabilizing and preserving neuromuscular junctions in patients with ALS.

With the support and oversight of the CRU Investigator-Initiated Trial team, the Clinical Project Lead will be responsible for all steps of developing and running this project at The Neuro, including overseeing all sponsor-related aspects (e.g. investigational product supply, outcome measure licensing and equipment, protocol and document creation, study logistics and workflows, setting up processes, etc.).

The clinical Projects Lead will work in close collaboration with knowledge experts of the CRU and ALS clinical research communities in addition to the academic research team whose research forms the foundation for the trial. The Clinical Projects Lead may be called upon to work on other CRU projects.
