This research coordinator position involves working closely with the PI on several projects related to reproductive health care for incarcerated women. The current projects of the PI’s research group include a qualitative study of pregnant women in prison who are denied access to abortion; researching policies and practices and implementing an intervention to improve care for incarcerated pregnant women with opioid use disorder; and an evaluation of the implementation of a new contraception program for women at the Baltimore jail. The position may also include other projects as further funding is awarded.
The position involves coordinating and assisting with all aspects of study implementation and design. This includes communicating with prison and jail administrators, recruitment of incarcerated subjects, helping to develop survey and interview instruments, IRB applications, jail and prison research approval applications. Keeping track of all study documents, track and report flow of subjects through protocols; checking for accuracy and ensuring proper storage of data; ensure timely data entry; recording and maintaining the integrity of the research data, including entering data into databases, properly formatting and electronically storing data; coordinating remuneration of subjects. The coordinator will conduct interviews with incarcerated subjects and administrators, which requires a knowledge of qualitative interview techniques and sensitivity to the nuances of the carceral context. The position also involves consenting subjects, including incarcerated subjects, also involves sensitivity to this environment and potential for coercion in research that must be mitigated. For new studies, the coordinator will lead the development of standard operating procedures manuals for the study. The coordinator will assist with and at times lead statistical data analysis and help to prepare manuscripts, conference abstracts, and posters and PowerPoint presentations.
In addition to scholarly dissemination, these research projects have policy implications and therefore require broader dissemination strategies, which the coordinator will help strategize and at times take the lead on. This includes preparing reports, infographics, website development and other materials to broader audiences.
The coordinator will arrange for research conference calls as the need arises and will update and maintain the Standard Operating Procedures Manuals for each research project.
As the PI’s research program is growing, we will also be hiring research assistants to be part of the team. The research coordinator will also be involved in recruitment and interviewing of research assistants. When new team members join, whether research assistants or student volunteers, the research coordinator will be responsible for orienting and overseeing these people. The research coordinator will help ensure coordination of all tasks and assistants/volunteers across the projects, including participating and organizing regular meetings.
The coordinator will assist with grant preparation, including writing, and will liaise with potential funders and research collaborators. The coordinator should have excellent written and oral communication skills, including the ability to translate complex ideas for dissemination to diverse audiences. The degree of effort dedicated to all of the above duties is variable depending on various project needs and flow. As the PI procures grant funding for subsequent related projects, the research coordinator will also be directly involved in coordinating activities for these, such as IRB related tasks, standard operating procedures, recruitment, data gathering etc. The coordinator will attend and at times make presentations at conferences to disseminate research results. Other responsibilities include helping with budgeting and reimbursement processing.
Since some of the studies have recruitment sites that are outside the Baltimore area, the research coordinator may also have to travel to the remote sites to help hire, train and oversee remote research staff at these locations.
