Recruiting for
Medical Director, Clinical Research Services (CRS)

Scope of Work
Applications are sought from current UCSF Faculty (All Schools) for the position of Medical Director, Clinical Research Services (CRS) under the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). This is an internal UCSF search.

The CTSI spans the four UCSF health science schools (Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing and Dentistry), the UCSF Graduate Division, UCSF Health, and collaborating affiliates of UCSF. The mission of CTSI is to facilitate clinical and translational research to improve patient and community health. CTSI does this by providing infrastructure, services and training to make clinical and translational research more efficient. CTSI develops broad coalitions and partnerships at the local, regional and national levels to enable a transformation of the clinical and translational research environment.

CRS provides space, infrastructure and technical support for selected patient-based research studies at UCSF, with units currently located at Parnassus, Mission Bay, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Hospital (SFVA). CRS units provide an array of services including nursing, biological sample collection and processing, body composition measurements, and exercise physiology testing.

The Medical Director, CRS is a faculty position providing leadership to the clinical and translational research environment of UCSF, specifically responsible for management of activities related to the CRS units. The position reports to the Director of the CTSI.

This is a 20% effort position that will be filled by an existing faculty member whose academic rank must be at or above the Assistant Professor Level at UCSF. Incumbents in the Ladder Rank, In Residence, Clinical X, Health Sciences Clinical or Adjunct series will be considered. Eligible applicants must have an earned doctorate such as an MD, DO, MBBS, or equivalent. It is expected that the incumbent is a clinical investigator with clinical trial conduct experience at UCSF and is or is able to be a member of the UCSF Medical Staff. This position is funded through federal grants and is therefore subject to over-the-cap limitations.

The primary responsibility of the incumbent is to serve as a core faculty member of the CTSI and to direct the CRS units at Parnassus, Mission Bay, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Hospital (SFVA). These activities will require regular interaction with faculty and staff on all campuses.

Secondary responsibilities include signing off on medical privileges for research faculty at the Parnassus, Benioff, and ZSFG sites, working closely with the CTSI and CRS administrative staff to ensure adherence to and compliance with Good Clinical Practice by CRS staff and investigators, overseeing the activities of the CTSI Protocol Review Committees, and working with the CTSI Director and CTSI's administrative core to achieve its aims.

Additional responsibilities include participation as key personnel on the CTSA grant, and regular engagement with the CTSI leadership and institutional stakeholders in the development, direction, and evaluation of overall CTSI activities. Opportunity exists for work with Participant and Clinical Interactions including expanding infrastructure and technical support for patient-based research across UCSF and its partner health systems and promoting inclusion of special populations (pediatric, geriatric, underrepresented) in patient-based research studies.
