Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine is seeking a Research Navigator for the Center for Clinical Research Program. The Research Navigator serves as a resource to WMed researchers (students, residents, and faculty) initiating investigator-led research studies. The Navigator is the first point of contact within the Office of Research and guides the investigator throughout the lifecycle of a protocol. The Research Navigator collaborates with research service providers throughout WMed to ensure the efficient and logical workflow needed for successful research projects. This individual assists investigators in preparing timelines, identifying the research resources needed for planning and execution of research projects, referring investigators to the appropriate services, and assists in the regulatory submission process. This individual will query active researchers regarding ongoing research projects and disseminate that information to medical students, graduate students, and residents and assist in pairing students and residents with researchers.
