GENERAL SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW STATEMENT:

The MGH Cardiovascular Imaging Research Center has a unique blend of cardiology, cardiac imaging, and radiology researchers and interests with the goal to derive the most significant impact on patient health through collaborative research. We strive to be on the forefront of cardiovascular imaging research and to provide a collaborative forum for the medical community at large and the patients, researchers and clinicians with a specific interest in cardiovascular disease. We focus on contributing to bridging the gap between development of new imaging markers, novel medical therapies and proof their efficacy and efficiency in clinical practice. Our goal is to obtain a deeper understanding of interactions between different organ systems and how they affect cardiovascular health.

We have a faculty of 11, about 10 postdoctoral fellows and other support staff and collaborate with institutions nationally and internationally.

The MGH Cardiovascular Imaging Research Center is seeking a qualified individual to assist with and coordinate clinical research trials and observational studies. This position is front focused with a direct patient/participant contact. Additionally, scientific opportunities are available, encouraged and supported. We have a combined focus on the development of both the project and the applicant.

For this position, ongoing and planned multicenter trials are the focus. A specific focus of this position is on cardiovascular disease in patients with cancer. As background, there is an increase in rates of cardiovascular disease in patients who have cancer or who have been treated for cancer. Our understanding of this increase in cardiovascular disease in patients with cancer needs to improve. It is anticipated that this research area and these patients will be the focus of the current position.

We believe that this position would be an ideal step for an applicant who is considering careers in healthcare such as those applying to medical school, pharmacy school, and nursing school. However, we also believe that such a position would be suited to applicants who are considered long-term careers in clinical and imaging research.
