Job Description:

Northern California Institute for Research and Education (NCIRE) is the leading nonprofit research institute in the United States devoted to advancing Veteran's health research. NCIRE is part of one of the world's most dedicated and successful Veterans care communities, pioneering new treatments and understandings of military medicine and care.

Along with our partners at the San Francisco VA Health Care System and the University of California, San Francisco, we are working to discover and develop effective, safe, and practical treatments for military injuries and diseases affecting Veterans. Through new technologies, novel scientific insights, and international clinical collaborations, we strive to set a new standard of health care research for Veterans and military personnel.

Position Definition:

The Staff Research Associate (SRA) 2 is a key player on a dynamic biomedical research team. The RA provides research and administrative support to the Endocrine Research Unit, a mixed laboratory and clinical research, multi-principal investigator group. Research addresses osteoporosis, calcium and bone metabolism, and the effects of cancer, diabetes, and obesity on skeletal health. This is a hybrid position, requiring some on-site work and other work that can be done remotely if desired.

One key project involves recruitment for a randomized controlled trial of the effects of a wearable device on bone health in postmenopausal women with osteopenia. A second key project involves data extraction from electronic medical records and coordination for a study investigating a novel use of radiologic images to measure bone strength and fracture outcomes in men with prostate cancer. This project hopes to change the current clinical paradigm for early detection of osteoporosis and prevention of spine fractures in men with prostate cancer. The SRA will receive training to conduct chart reviews and subsequently will conduct protocolized electronic medical record reviews and data entry into a secure research data capture software. The SRA will coordinate with collaborators at Philadelphia VA to ensure consistency and quality control of data extraction and data management. The SRA may have the opportunity to participate in co-authoring and disseminating research findings.
