Description

At ICON, it's our people that set us apart.

As a global provider of drug development solutions, our work is serious business. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun while you do it. With our vision to be the partner of choice in drug development, we hire only the best and brightest in the industry. Are you one of them?

The SIte Engagement Liaison (SEL) will develop relationships with clinical trial investigators and research site staff to facilitate recruitment of subjects in pharmaceutical industry clinical trials for which ICON serves as the contract research organization (CRO). The SEL will work in concert with ICON's clinical research associates (CRAs) and the study team to ensure that investigators and site staff have a thorough understanding of the investigational agents being used in the study, the trial's eligibility criteria, and all study procedures. Particular attention will be given to assessing the effectiveness of each site's strategy used to identify potentially eligible subjects. The SEL must also understand how the trial fits into the site's pattern of treatment for the condition and how any competing clinical trials or upcoming drug approvals may affect the progress of recruitment. Repeated interactions will be needed over the course of the trial to ensure that the trial remains "top of mind" with investigators and staff. The SEL will function as part of the study team and will interact frequently with sponsor companies and their field personnel. Furthermore, the SEL will serve as liaison with key investigators to help ensure that they receive prompt assistance with any queries and that any concerns they have are promptly transmitted to the trial's sponsor.
