Dr. Brett Litz's lab, part of the Massachusetts Veterans Epidemiology Research and Information Center at VA Boston Healthcare System, is seeking a Project Coordinator hired through Boston University to lead the coordination and execution of a program evaluation of the Veterans Healing Veterans from the Inside Out (VHV) program--a therapeutic program implemented in several correctional facilities in California. The person hired for this project will coordinate with VHV and VA Boston personnel to collect data at various correctional facilities in Northern California. Data collection will involve consenting participants, conducting semi-structured interviews, and administering surveys, and thus, the position requires experience interacting with Veterans and/or individuals who are incarcerated. Because data collection is occurring at correctional facilities, the position involves operating at a high level of autonomy in order to navigate unanticipated challenges in working in this unique setting.
Experience in leading complex projects, an understanding of correctional settings and populations, as well as experience with foundations of research and data collection are essential skills for this position. The position also involves securing and maintaining hard copy data, scanning hard copy data, securing audio files of interviews, and sending all data securely to Dr. Litz and his team at VA Boston. The person in this role will report to Dr. Litz and will not have any direct reports, though they will collaborate with other members of Dr. Litz's lab to carry out essential job functions.
At minimum, a Bachelor's degree in a relevant field with at least five years of experience is required (Master's degree is preferred). Field(s) of degree(s): Social Work, Psychology, Public Health
