NeuroCog Trials, a rapidly growing company with close ties to Duke University Medical Center, has been involved in design and implementation of multisite clinical trials, including rater training, data quality assurance, and neurocognitive test development, for 10 years.

We are looking to fill a full-time Ph.D.-level position. This individual will assist in novel test development and validation, trial design, data analysis and interpretation, and business development, and will oversee neurocognitive rater certification and data quality control for multisite pharmaceutical company trials, primarily in Alzheimer's disease, aging, and schizophrenia.

Experience with dementia or schizophrenia is a plus.
