Primary Purpose

The Mid-Level Data Manager/Protocol Monitor (DM/PM) is responsible for completing study-specific data management activities in accordance with Good Clinical Practices and other relevant guidelines. The DM/PM works as an integral part of a multidisciplinary project team through the lifecycle of the clinical study, from study design through final analysis.

Data management deliverables include data collection forms, electronic case report forms, data queries, manuals of procedure, and/or data collection guidelines. The DM/PM also performs quality control of data utilized in safety and analysis reports.

An experienced DM/PM will be expected to apply previous experience with database design (either clinical or non-clinical) to quickly learn Emmes' proprietary systems for eCRF development and query generation. An experienced DM/PM is also expected to work independently to extract required data collection elements from the protocol to develop data collection forms, develop supplemental study documents, and coordinate study report generation. The ideal candidate will be detail-oriented, a team player, a clear communicator, and able to multi-task.

  • Ensure adherence to project and corporate standard operating procedures (SOPs), as well as federal and ICH guidelines in maintaining data integrity and quality throughout a clinical study
  • Contribute to and comply with project standardization efforts
  • Duties may include medical writing, as well as planning and implementing QC steps, such as checking tables, figures, and listings; verifying data entry; reviewing data files; and reconciling text and tables

  • Experience translating data needs into effectively written requirements for database design
  • Experience identifying and applying data querying criteria to clean complex datasets
