Job Summary
The Cancer Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is a pediatric cancer treatment facility staffed by internationally recognized pediatric oncologists and teams with expertise in every type of pediatric cancer is seeking a Research Associate
Research Associate plans, coordinates and executes research projects. Works with the principal, investigator. Participates in and assists in the planning and coordination of research projects. Is independent and responsible for a specific aspect of the research project. Assists in determining the direction of the project.
Our physicians, who have expertise in the rarest and most common pediatric cancers, work together to diagnose and treat patients using an evidence-based approach backed by the latest research advancements. The Cancer Center offers a full range of therapies, from standard treatment protocols to unique clinical trials that are only available at CHOP.
We developed our care model by asking the question, "What would a family want in a care team as they enter our center, at any stage — newly diagnosed, later in therapy or in survivorship?" We believe the answer is that every child should have the opportunity to have their condition consulted upon, treated, followed and cared for by internationally recognized experts in the field of pediatric oncology.
To facilitate this, we have developed dedicated multidisciplinary teams, organized around diagnosis or type of cancer, and review conferences, which are meetings where our experts discuss every aspect of your child's case. This ensures each child, at every stage of treatment, has a personalized care plan and is getting the best possible recommendations.
Our care team model allows families to see fewer physicians so they can build an ongoing relationship. It also allows our pediatric oncologists to gain an in-depth understanding of their patients and families so they can better meet their needs.
Families also benefit from the many research advances that are being made at our Center for Childhood Cancer Research. When a discovery is made that leads to a new treatment for childhood cancer, we have the resources to quickly implement it for our patients.

Ideal applicant will have a background in psychology, public health, nursing, or other related fields.
Candidate is expected to have excellent managerial, writing, research, and data management skills, as well as experience with hospital based research working with medical teams.
