The Bhatt Lab, led by Dr. Ami Bhatt, MD, Ph.D., is part of the Departments of Genetics and Hematology at Stanford University School of Medicine. The lab is a bioinformatics and microbial metagenomics hub that focuses on translating innovative and cutting-edge molecular biological, microbiological, clinical informatics and bioinformatics skills to understand the impact (positive and negative) of the microbiome on patient outcomes, especially as it pertains to individuals with cancer. As a group that sees the role for novel approaches to improving patient care, we are committed to leveraging advances in genomics and translational biology to manipulate the microbiome safely and effectively in this vulnerable patient population. Patient participation is a critical part of our research success and our efforts to make impact in this realm of research. In addition to collecting comprehensive clinical information about hundreds of cancer patients treated at Stanford, the lab also has a rich resource of biospecimens from these individuals.
We are seeking a full time (1.0 FTE) Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator (ACRC) to help manage these microbiome-related clinical studies. The candidate will spend half their time doing clinical research work, and about half their time doing laboratory based clinical translational research. The ACRC will work collaboratively with various study teams to help manage participant screenings, study procedures, IRB protocol compliance in addition to sample collection, processing, and sequencing. The ACRC will also be involved in primary research carried out by the Bhatt lab, both assisting other members of the lab with their projects, as well as potentially leading their own project (based on skill and prior experience).
A list of some of the projects the ACRC may contribute to can be found on the Bhatt Lab website.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
