Job Summary

The successful candidate will join the research teams of Dr. Jeffrey Gerber and Dr. Sarah Henrickson  at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The clinical research assistant’s primary responsibilities will be to assist in the enrollment of children in multiple clinical research studies.

 

Dr. Henrickson’s research focuses on understanding the role of T cell dysfunction in chronic allergic and inflammatory disease, including asthma and obesity, as well as rare, monogenic primary immunodeficiency. To this end, Dr. Henrickson’s team uses complementary approaches in humans and mice, leveraging detailed immunophenotyping and metabolic characterization of immune dysfunction in patients to identify mechanistic hypotheses to test in mouse models and human cells in vitro.

 

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.
