This position requires a strict adherence to protocols and safety guidelines, with an emphasis on organizational skills and meticulous attention to detail. In addition, the successful candidate must possess a warm and nonjudgmental manner, and consistently demonstrate interpersonal tact, discretion, and sensitivity when interacting with study participants.
