Research Scientist, Cardiac CT Core Laboratory, St. Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver ,BC 

 JOB SUMMARY

The Cardiac Computed Tomography (CT) Core Laboratory at St. Paul’s Hospital provides standardized image analysis for clinical multicenter clinical trials involving structural heart disease. A wide spectrum of trials is supported, ranging from first-in-man and early feasibility studies for investigational medical devices (transcatheter heart valves) to large post-marketing studies. Close collaboration with device manufacturers as well as post-processing software developers allows us to develop, refine and apply cutting edge image segmentation strategies for image analysis and procedural planning using cardiac CT data sets. The wide range of trial involvement allows us direct access to clinical trial data for sub-analyses, having yielded high academic output over the last few years. In addition, ‘on-site’ research projects are performed involving CT image data acquired at St. Paul’s Hospital.

The incumbent will oversee the CT Core Laboratory’s day-to-day operations in consultation with the Director/Co-Director and in collaboration with the Core Lab Coordinator in planning, protocol development and image analysis for multicenter trials. Furthermore, the incumbent will be involved in planning the scope, establishing the goals, and defining the budgets for data analyses and on-site projects performed in the Facility. The incumbent will also train and supervise research and clinical fellows in regard to conduction of on-site research projects involving CT segmentation and analysis.
ORGANIZATIONAL STATUS

The laboratory is managed by two radiologists who hold academic appointments at the University of British Columbia. Support personnel are comprised of two research coordinators. There is a varying number of research fellows supporting ongoing research projects. The incumbent reports to the Director/Co-Director and depending on their level of experience collaborates with or supervises research fellows, residents and students in the planning and performance of research projects as well as multi-center trials support.
WORK PERFORMED

  • Performs and supports CT image segmentation and analysis for clinical multicenter trials.
  • Develops communication plans for reporting of analysis data to trial sponsors.
  • Pursues research partnership opportunities.
  • Manages the operation of image post-processing and the analytical work of research fellows, clinical fellows, residents, graduate and undergraduate students.
  • Provides advice on project scope and planning and how to achieve research goals.
  • Defines and develops project goals.
  • Establishes project budgets and provides advice and remaining within budget.
  • Writes and presents technical materials for users of instruments and facilities.
  • Prepares scientific papers and grant submissions.

 

CONSEQUENCE OF ERROR

Errors in image analyses as well as data analyses and/or poor supervision could lead to incorrect interpretation of research results and prevent the attainment of research goals in regard to ‘on-site’ research projects. Such errors would result in the loss of time and resources on behalf of the researchers. Errors in image analysis and data handling for services provided for multi-center trials could jeopardize data integrity for the trials involved. The candidate will be directly accountable for the overall integrity of the data and samples.
SUPERVISION RECEIVED

Works creatively without supervision, makes independent decisions, and discusses design progress, results, changes, and suggestions with project supervisors. Work is reviewed against objectives jointly established with the Lab Director/Co-Director. The incumbent has wide latitude in task scheduling and decision making.
SUPERVISION GIVEN

Supervises research fellows, clinical fellows, residents and students in planning of research projects as well as the use and proper operation of image post-processing work stations for CT image analysis. .
QUALIFICATIONS

Undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline. M.Sc in Clinical Sciences or equivalent preferred. Minimum of three years experience or the equivalent combination of education and experience. Expertise in cardiac physiology, cardiac anatomy, structural heart disease and non-invasive cardiac imaging (echocardiography and computed tomography) is required. Demonstrated experience in cardiac CT imaging and segmentation. Ability to write and present statistical and technical materials and reports to internal and external clients. Skilled in reviewing statistical data and determining its validity. Ability to compile literature data and analyze experimental data. Ability to communicate effectively verbally and in writing. Ability to deal with a diversity of people in a calm, courteous, and effective manner. Ability to provide quality service to clients in a courteous, patient manner.
