Budgeting Specialist

Clinical Trials Office Los Angeles, California

USC Clinical Trial Office (CTO) is seeking a Budget Specialist with experience in

the administration of industry sponsored research in an academic center.

As a Budget Specialist, the candidate is responsible for the development and negotiation of budgets for industry sponsored clinical trials.  The Budget Specialist is responsible for reviewing the Medicare coverage analysis, protocol, sponsor proposed budget and informed consent (if available) and fully accounting for all clinical costs and investigator and study team effort required to carry out the study, as well as costs for ancillary services. 

The Budget Specialist should be familiar with capturing all associated CPT codes and confirming unit costs for procedures, labs, and other associated fees on an internal budget, and negotiating with sponsor or CRO representatives to obtain full funding for industry sponsored studies.  The Budget Specialist also communicates with the CTO Contracts Manager to ensure that all costs and subject reimbursement terms are appropriately captured in the clinical trial agreement. All budgets are developed within the clinical trial management system so experience using OnCore or similar systems is a plus. 

The University of Southern California strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment.  Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
