Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) position is with the Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP). CTRP is nationally recognized for its leadership in developing effective, family-centered interventions for children aged birth through five who experience traumatic events. Our team of multi-cultural, multi-lingual staff is dedicated to helping young children and their families heal from trauma. We develop and evaluate effective treatment models, provide training across settings and disciplines, and offer direct service to children and their families. Since 2001, CTRP has been the lead program of the Early Trauma Treatment Network, a center of the federally- funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Five randomized trials support the efficacy of Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), our intervention for children aged 0-5 who have experienced at least one traumatic event (e.g. maltreatment, the sudden or traumatic death of someone close, a serious accident, sexual abuse, exposure to domestic violence). As a result, many organizations across the country and internationally are seeking training in CPP.
CTRP is funded to conduct clinical research on Child Parent Psychotherapy and other related early childhood trauma informed interventions; research support is critical for the functioning of CTRP. There are currently approximately 15 research protocols at CTRP approved by the Committee for Human Research (CHR) at UCSF.
The CRC will manage and coordinate the data collection of several concurrent clinical research studies. The individual will work independently under the direction of the Principal Investigators (PIs), Associate Research Director/Director of Dissemination, and the Associate Director to Community Programs. Duties will include, but are not limited to, creating, cleaning, updating, and managing databases, coordinating research support staff and volunteers, training new staff members and clinical interns (pre-doctoral interns, post-doctoral fellows, and pre- and post-masters-level graduate students) in research procedures, developing procedures to ensure data quality (including meeting with clinical staff to review data collection procedures and protocol adherence), tracking participants in clinical research studies, coordinating and administering relevant parts of the assessment protocols to caregivers and children, working with CHR online systems to submit Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications for new studies as well as for renewals and modifications, reporting study progress to investigators, writing up study reports, purchasing assessment measures from manufacturers, and collaborating on the development of new study protocols.
