The Healthy Minds Network (HMN) for Research on Adolescent and Young Adult Mental Health is looking to hire a highly skilled, self-motivated research study coordinator. Job responsibilities include coordination of multiple national survey studies, management of all Institutional Review Board (IRB) tasks, and other logistic and administrative tasks associated with HMN’s new and on-going large-scale research projects. The projects are related to adolescent and young adult mental health, especially in college student populations. The main project is the Healthy Minds Study, a national study of student mental health. The study coordinator will ensure the smooth and efficient day-to-day operation of research and data collection activities, acting as the primary administrative point of contact for internal research staff and for external constituents (primarily administrators from other colleges and universities). This will involve monitoring the progress of research activities, developing and maintaining records of research activities, preparing periodic reports, and conducting basic data analyses. The new coordinator will be expected to provide supervision over research assistants, including planning, assigning tasks, supervising, and evaluating the work of research assistants. They will also be responsible for training and instructing employees. The new study coordinator will join a team who will train and work closely with the new coordinator. The research team is led by Daniel Eisenberg (Professor of Health Management and Policy, University of Michigan) and Sarah Ketchen Lipson (Assistant Professor of Health Law Policy and Management, Boston University). There will be opportunities for the study coordinator to take on other responsibilities and use/learn additional skills (such as data management and manuscript preparation) based on interest.
