Position Summary:
The Institute for Clinical and Translational Science is a special project department housed under the Office of Research on the UCI Campus. The UCI CTSA is one of 62 NIH-NCATS funded institutes in the US. The ICTS Mission is to improve health and healthcare by catalyzing translational research across the spectrum and by advancing the science of translation. The cohesive theme of ICTS is to build, track, implement, and evaluate sustainable programs that advance innovation, quality, efficiency, and value of translational science across the broad spectrum of clinical research. The ICTS functions as a local centerpiece for the national program, and we are dedicated to advancing scientific discovery and medical breakthroughs. Collectively, our goal is simple: to accelerate these discoveries from the lab and translate them into life-altering medical care. The Evaluation Team within the ICTS is tasked with tracking and evaluating the impact of ICTS activities for the purpose of quality improvement. The ICTS provides diverse resources to UCI researchers, such as faculty and student training awards, pilot study seed funding, expert consultation on statistical analyses, participant recruitment, and implementation of human subjects research studies, and professional education.
 
Under the general supervision of the Chief Administrative Officer and Associate Director for the Institute of Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS), the CURE Navigator will support a full range of administrative functions and manage regional as well as national projects. The CURE Navigator will be in charge of connecting researchers with research resources and facilitating inter-institutional interactions between CHOC and UCI by providing informed, efficient, and experienced assistance to investigators and research staff. The CURE Navigator will work with individual researchers or research teams by providing a wide range of support from identifying resources and funding opportunities to identifying collaborators, helping with study design and regulatory submissions, and assisting with participant recruitment plans. The CURE will work with investigators and their staff, academic trainees, and students with a goal to facilitate research and reduce barriers to the research process. The support can be as simple as providing a quick answer, sharing a link, or connecting to a subject matter expert or other contact at CHOC or UCI. Researchers may also approach the CURE with questions or broader issues related to a proposal or project, such as a strategy for multi-institutional IRB approval or recruitment plan, issues with the operational process or flow of work proposed, navigating and coordinating the budgeting and contracting/subcontracting process at each institution, etc. The incumbent will provide executive level administrative support and coordination and work closely with researchers and physicians at UC Irvine, CHOC, and other institutions to cultivate multisite research networks. He/she will be the main contact on for coordinating meetings, awarding grants, managing contracts and agreements between the participating institutions. The incumbent will be responsible for complex administrative analysis in the areas of project development and management of internal and external grants, tracking progression of milestones and reporting progress to the ICTS Research and Acceleration Facilitation Team. The inaugural CURE Navigator will be an individual with proven team, social, and research skills and track record to effectively align researchers and resources across multiple institutions. He/she should have sufficient educational and career experience and credentials to engender the trust necessary to motivate and synergize talented investigators and resources across both CHOC and UCI.
