At Big Health, our purpose is to help millions back to good mental health.
We do this through our digital therapeutics: Daylight™ for worry and anxiety, and Sleepio™, for poor sleep.
These fully automated cognitive and behavioral programs are as scalable and clinically validated as drugs.
And our software combines the intimacy of the human voice, engaging animation, and clinically rigorous techniques to engage people anytime and anywhere and ultimately help them overcome their mental health challenges.
Today, over 12 million people worldwide have access to Big Health’s products, via leading employers in the US (including Target, Google, and Boston Medical) and the UK’s NHS.
As a Clinical Research Assistant at Big Health, you will be a core part of our expanding Clinical, Research and Medical Affairs team.
In this role, you will coordinate ongoing and future research studies of our digital therapeutics including assisting with study setup (e.g., data capture platforms such as Qualtrics), helping with recruitment and screening of study participants, and collecting outcome data from research participants.
You will also provide ongoing assistance to the CRMA team as needed by conducting literature reviews and helping the team maintain up-to-date knowledge of relevant literature, and summarizing our own research findings. This will also involve contributing to written materials such as research summaries and peer-reviewed publications.
You will report directly to Dr. Alasdair Henry, one of our Senior Research Managers, and will work closely with the other members of the research team to expand the externally-led research pipelines for our products.
Join us and bring your unique talents to bring millions back to good mental health!
