The Cancer Support Community (CSC), the largest nonprofit provider of social and emotional support for people affected by cancer, is seeking a Research Manager at their Research & Training Institute (RTI).
Candidates should have a passion for and experience in behavioral science (e.g., psychology), quantitative research, and cancer survivorship. The Research Manager will be responsible for supporting various research projects across the RTI and in particular our flagship study, the Cancer Experience Registry. Competitive candidates will have strong experience in scientific research execution, collaborating with content experts to inform research planning, recruiting participants, handling and storing datasets, and monitoring for integrity for the duration of the project. Other frequently used skills include project planning and management, data presentation, writing for a variety of audiences, literature reviews, and communicating/networking with various project stakeholders. This position also requires completion of administrative, organizational, logistic, financial, and workshop planning tasks as well as coordination of outreach/recruitment efforts 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, attention to detail, meticulous record keeping, and excellent communication skills are essential. Because you will work with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, you must also 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.
