The successful candidate will join the research team of Dr. Jeffrey Gerber in the Pediatric IDEAS Research Group at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The clinical research assistant’s primary responsibilities will be to assist in the execution of a randomized controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a SARS CoV-2 vaccine.
Dr. Gerber’s research focuses on the epidemiology and outcomes of antimicrobial use in children with the goal of improving clinical outcomes while limiting the emergence of antimicrobial resistance. His approach benchmarks antimicrobial use across clinical settings to identify high-impact targets for improvement, followed by 1) comparative effectiveness studies for clinical scenarios where practice variability exists in the absence of evidence; 2) interventions to implement and disseminate evidence-based practice where prescribing guidelines do exist; and (3) qualitative assessments of the clinician, practice, or institution-level factors that might drive antimicrobial prescribing.
The applicant is expected to work comfortably as part of a research team. The candidate will be a member of the Pediatric IDEAS Research Group, a collaborative group of investigators within the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE) at CHOP. The mission of the Pediatric IDEAS Research Group is to perform rigorous clinical and translational research that generates evidence on the prevention and treatment of infections to inform best practices and improve the health of children, families, and communities.
