The Cancer Support Community’s Research & Training Institute (RTI) in Philadelphia, PA, is seeking a Research Manager. Candidates should have experience and strong interest in behavioral science (e.g., psychology), quantitative research, and cancer survivorship. The Research Manager will report to the Senior Director of Research and will be responsible for supporting various research projects across the RTI. Competitive candidates will have strong experience in scientific research design and execution, collaborating with content experts to inform research planning, reviewing and designing survey instruments, building and revising scientific surveys, programming the survey and its revisions in Qualtrics, handling and storing datasets, and monitoring for integrity for the duration of the project. Other frequently used skills include writing for a variety of audiences, literature reviews, human subjects research compliance, and project planning (e.g. creating scopes of work and research or work plans). This position also requires completion of administrative, organizational, logistic, financial, and event-planning tasks as projects require. The successful candidate for this role will demonstrate an ability to manage as many as 6-8 projects at a time and at varying stages of development. Although supervised by the Senior Director of Research, the Research Manager will support multiple Research Directors and will largely be responsible for his/her own time management with respect to setting and meeting deadlines. As such, organizational skills and attention to detail are essential. Because you will work with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, you must also have strong interpersonal and communication skills, be comfortable on cross-functional teams, and be adept at thinking on your feet.
CSC offers several options for where you may work. The position may be located at a CSC headquarters office in Washington DC, Philadelphia, or New York, on a full-time basis or on a hybrid (in office/ work from home) model. You may also choose to work remotely from any location in the United States.
This is a one-year fellowship position with potential for renewal and/or permanent position pending available grant funding.
