GENERAL SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW STATEMENT:
The Mass General Department of Neurology is home to the MGH Youth Neurology Education and Research Program, a unique immersive opportunity for high school, baccalaureate, and undergraduate students from communities underrepresented in STEM to work at Mass General conducting mentored neurology research, participating in neuroscience didactics, and engaging in longitudinal career support as they navigate education and job opportunities. Alumni predominantly identify as women; Black, Latino, or Native American; and first-generation students. They attend dozens of higher education institutions across the United States, primarily focusing on neuroscience and pursuing medical or other health careers. Some are already enrolled in medical, nursing, and other graduate school programs. Several are working in healthcare, including at Mass General Brigham and the biotechnology industry. The program will reach over 100 alumni in 2023 and aims to grow in size and scope over the next few years.
The Clinical Research Coordinator II (CRC II) will partner with the Program Director to develop strategic initiatives, manage daily operations, measure outcomes, and disseminate the MGH Youth Neurology Education and Research Program. The ideal candidate will care deeply about the professional success of participating youth while prioritizing their social and emotional wellbeing. The CRC II will have a commitment to positively impacting the lives of youth while advancing equity and justice. Working in close collaboration with the Program Director and a robust group of partners across Mass General and the broader community, the CRC II will actively support applicants, interns, mentors, alumni, and other stakeholders.
