Randomization & Study Product Coordinator
Medpace is a global, full-service Clinical Research Organization (CRO) specializing in a multitude of therapeutic areas. Our headquarters are located in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA and we are active in over 45 countries across the globe. We continue to steadily grow and are looking to add to our team! Our European activities are growing rapidly, and we are currently seeking a full-time, office-based Randomization & Study Product Coordinator to join our RSPM team in Stirling. The RSPM team is global and is based in the Cincinnati office, Leuven office and Beijing office. For studies we design and build an IRT (interactive response technology/ivrs/iwrs) system that manages the subject randomization and drug supply for the study. We manage a huge variety of studies. We typically design, build and validate a study over a 10 week timeline. Once the study is live we are responsible for study project management related to the drug supply for the study. Initially each new member of the team is trained on answering support questions by phone or email. Next a new employee learns to execute routine tasks live forwarding drug orders and data management. Over the next couple of years (or less) each person learns more and more about the systems and grows in responsibility for problem solving. There are two really important tasks early in a person’s career: learning to perform internal user acceptance on each study we build and understanding how the design of the IRT system meets the needs of each protocol. Both tasks involve a sophisticated understanding of complex technical and verbal information. Once these skills are mastered, employees begin design and write specifications for new IRT studies. Writing specifications demands superior analytical skills and considerable interpersonal expertise in order to manage the relationship with the sponsor and the system timelines. We need a really high level of dedication to learn the job and then a lot of initiative and responsibility to actually manage projects independently. RESPONSIBILITIES * Problem solving/answering investigational support questions by phone or e-mail * User acceptance testing of IRT database Input into design of IRT system through writing specifications to ensure the design meets the needs of the protocol * Oversee drug supply process and problem solve issues that arise; * Train internal and external users at the Investigator Meetings, Data Management of the IRT system; * Maintain study documentation.
