Sr. Research Program Coordinator


The Berman Institute of Bioethics is seeking a Sr. Research Program Coordinator to work collaboratively with the PI on a robust research agenda focusing on pediatric palliative care.  Palliative care for infants and children was founded on the principles and practices that defined palliative care for adult patients. Yet there are specific clinical, ethical, research, education, and policy concerns that are unique to very sick children and their families. Our research agenda explores the approaches to care for children with complex chronic conditions and their families, novel interventions to reduce hospitalizations, and the ethical frameworks needed for this population. 



  • Manage projects and work with the PI to convene Working Group focused on pediatric palliative care research (will include handling day to day issues).
  • Collaborate with Working Group members to foster and track research progress.
  • Write scientific grant applications to help support research agenda.
  • Conduct literature reviews covering a broad range of scientific journals. 
  • Help with project design including methods, surveys, and tool development.
  • Data collection, especially qualitative interviews.
  • Assist with qualitative and quantitative data analysis.
  • Draft, write, and edit manuscripts for professional publication in scientific   journals.
  • Draft, write, and edit research presentations (posters, power point).


  • Bachelor’s degree in related discipline.
  • Three years related experience required.
  • Additional education may substitute for experience, to the extent permitted by the JHU equivalency formula (18 graduate degree credits may substitute for one year of experience).


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in social sciences, bioethics or biological sciences preferred.
  • Master’s degree preferred.
  • Five years’ experience preferred.


Special Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Knowledge of palliative care highly desirable.
  • Knowledge of qualitative research highly desirable.
  • Research skills are critical.
  • Excellent written, communications and interpersonal skills, superior organizational skills and the ability to think creatively and strategically.
  • Candidates should be self-motivated, able to work independently, meet deadlines, maintain a flexible and adaptable working style and display superb professional judgment and discretion.
  • Knowledge of medical terminology and healthcare systems are helpful, but not required.
