Stanford University Department of Pediatrics, Division of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics aims to provide optimum state-of-the-art care for children at risk for or with developmental delays and disorders, including children who had been acutely ill as newborns. We are dedicated to the School of Medicine's mission of advancing and exploring innovative and novel biomedical, translational, and clinical research and education through the nurturing stimulation of interactions among basic and clinical scientists, clinicians, and educators throughout the School of Medicine and University, as well as with the private and public sectors. Through our integrated research, education, patient, and community participation programs, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of academic medicine and patient care.
We are seeking an Clinical Research Coordinator to perform duties related to the coordination of clinical research studies.

The Clinical Research Coordinator will be able to work both independently and as part of a multi-disciplinary team comprised of physician scientists, developmental cognitive neuroscientists and psychologists. The position offers the opportunity to develop valuable clinical and academic research skills and the opportunity to contribute to innovative and translational research aimed at improving learning outcomes in children with or at-risk for developmental delays.
