Bordet-Coordinator for the Oncodistinct Network (m/f/x) 38h/week


The Oncodistinct Network was initiated nearly 7 years ago by clinical research investigators from within and outside of Europe and is based at Institut Jules Bordet in Brussels. The network aims to respond to the exponential changes in the oncology research landscape by accelerating treatment individualization, promoting multidisciplinarity in clinical research, and challenging current practices, particularly in settings with unmet medical needs. Oncodistinct is a research network bringing together leading academic investigators who share the same vision of innovative clinical research. By building a strong collaboration between clinicians, scientists and partners in drug development, Oncodistinct intends to develop early-to-later phase clinical trials with innovative designs and cutting-edge translational research components, all aiming to significantly improve patient outcomes. There are currently 4 ongoing Oncodistinct studies.

The driving force of the Oncodistinct Network is its investigator’s think tank, which generates innovative clinical research projects. Oversight and strategic decision-making come from Oncodistinct’s steering committee, which is composed of one representative per Oncodistinct center. The day-to-day management of activities is supported by the Project Manager with the support of the coordinating and operational teams (involving an executive officer, legal counsel, and support for regulatory, financial, and administrative matters).
