Job Title: Ethos Discovery House Officer Research Coordinator

Reports to: Ethos Discovery Director of Clinical Operations

Direct Reports: None

Location: United States (Remote)



Ethos Discovery is a non-profit incubator of scientific innovation. Discovery takes unmet needs uncovered through discussions with the doctors of Ethos Veterinary Health, identifies industry partners that may possess or seek to develop solutions to the unmet needs, and then conducts clinical trials to generate data/evidence with the goal of delivering the solution to the unmet need to the  market, and more specifically, the Ethos doctors that voiced the unmet need. In addition to its work in innovation, and as a result of Discovery’s close relationship with Ethos Vet Health, Discovery also provides science/research mentorship services to the house officers within the Ethos hospitals. These services include identifying potential research projects, assistance in developing study protocols, support in the launch and conduct of a study, help with statistical analysis needs, and guidance in the writing and publication of scientific manuscripts. With Ethos Vet Health now growing to over 150 hospitals and an increased demand for this level of mentorship in science, the Discovery team now seeks to bring on a House Officer Research Coordinator to help monitor and oversee the progress of all of the house officers being mentored by the Ethos Discovery team.
