Study Manager

The Autism Glass project, a multidisciplinary project in the Stanford School of Medicine, is looking for a part-time or full-time Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) or “study manager” as we like to call it. Our team has developed a system using machine learning and artificial intelligence to automate facial expression recognition that runs on wearable glasses and delivers real-time social cues to children with Autism. You can see the system in action and find some recent background on the projects in KQED, SF Chronicle, Scientific American, and CBS.

As a study manager, you’ll co-lead our 100-person phase 2 clinical study, in which children with autism are using our system at home every day. You will work directly with participants to manage screenings, consent process, study procedures, and general communication. At the same time, you’ll be the eyes and ears of the engineering team and work with our group of user experience experts to manage a participatory design process, rather than a traditional clinical trial. You’ll join weekly engineering and user experience review meetings and are expected to be a strong team-player.

This is a fast-paced project and you’ll have to keep up. In return, you’ll get to join a terrific team at Stanford working on some pretty cool technology to solve a big problem.

Duties include:

  • Serve as primary contact with research participants
  • Coordinate outreach events, work with press, partner institutions, collaborating sites, etc.
  • Coordinate collection and management of study data
  • Interact with the Autism Glass team regularly and take part in weekly engineering and user experience review meetings
  • Schedule study visits, coordinate documents, and crunch the numbers
  • Participate in monitor visits and regulatory audits
  • Manage interns and volunteers as required

Desired Qualifications

  • Previous experience with working with families and children with autism
  • 2+ years of startup-esque research experience
  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent
  • Strong computer and organizational skills
  • Excellent verbal and written communication and interpersonal skills
