Fox Chase Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Center research facility and hospital based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is seeking a Director of Clinical Research Operations for the Office of Clinical Research.

The Office of Clinical Research is seeking a dynamic, relationship driven, and action-oriented individual to lead a team of about 68 members. Highly visible and hands-on, the director will be an integral part of the departments management team and is responsible for all aspects of clinical operations to ensure the advancement of the mission and optimal operating effectiveness for Fox Chase. The Director of Clinical Research Operations will report to the Associate Vice President of the OCR and will be responsible for leading the clinical research operations team for clinical trials at FCCC.

The Office of Clinical Research at Fox Chase Cancer Center is a centralized department that oversees the development of investigator-initiated trials (IIT) through the Clinical Protocol Data Management Office Facility (CPDM), coordinates submission of studies to the Feasibility, Research Review Committee (RRC) and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and manages therapeutic and interventional clinical research studies at Fox Chase. The office also provides support for cancer prevention and control research.

Fox Chase’s 100-bed hospital is one of the few facilities in the country devoted entirely to cancer care. Established in 1904, Fox Chase was the first cancer hospital in the United States. As one of the first NCI- designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, the center’s nationally renowned physicians have won two Nobel Prizes, the Lasker Award, the Kyoto Prize, developed the hepatitis B Vaccine, and developed the first genetic link to cancer. Fox Chase houses expert physicians, state of the art technology, novel therapies, and cutting-edge clinical trials.

Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple University Health System signed an affiliation agreement in 2012. Under the agreement, Fox Chase has connected and extended its current operations in the adjoining 176- bed and 22-acre Jeans Hospital, which is already a part of the Temple University Health system. Fox Chase is considered the “Cancer Hub” of the Temple University Health System. Temple University Hospital (TUH) is one of the region's most respected academic medical centers. The 732-bed Philadelphia hospital is also the chief clinical training site for the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
