Working independently, the candidate will manage the development and implementation of a large scale, ongoing environmental maternal and child health study being conducted throughout New Hampshire and the Dartmouth Hitchcock service area that is contributing to a national effort to address how pre- peri- and postnatal environmental exposures impact childhood development and health outcomes.
Responsibilities will include participating in the development of research protocols including selection and design of questionnaires and biologic sample collection and measurement methods (clinical measures, anthropometry, neurodevelopment). Responsibilities will also include oversight of data and sample collection, supervision and training of study personnel at multiple sites to ensure that maternal/pediatric assessments are completed correctly and that study milestones and goals are met in a timely manner.

To meet these responsibilities, the candidate will be expected to closely collaborate with the study Principal Investigator, co-investigators, laboratory director, post-doctoral trainees, statisticians, programmers, clinical personnel, administrative officers and others. The candidate will also be expected to develop strong relationships with the NIH and coordinating centers, medical and administrative staff at collaborating sites and serve as a liaison with local medical communities, study participants and others in response to study questions and requests. This position requires the ability to work a flexible schedule, occasional travel to study sites within New Hampshire, and to attend national meetings.
Candidates for this position should have relevant experience in a research or clinical environment with direct study related experience preferably in the maternal/child and/or environmental health fields. A PhD or Master’s Degree in public health, maternal/child health, environmental health, social sciences or other health related field is preferred.
