Job summary: The Program Coordinator will function as part of a lab/research team for two federally-funded research studies. One study is a community-based project centered on examining substance use and other risky behaviors in children and adolescents who have experienced trauma. For this study project, the Program Coordinator will lead the final stages of developing an electronic toolkit aiming to assist clinicians, caregivers, and teens receiving trauma-focused CBT. This will include recruitment of participants for beta testing of the toolkit and recruitment of participants for a pilot-feasibility trial and subsequent randomized controlled trial. The other study is a lab-based project centered on examining connections between stressful life experiences (e.g., trauma) and threat processing in the brain during childhood and adolescence.

For this project, the Program Coordinator will recruit youth and caregivers from the community, conduct phone screens, schedule lab visits, and administer an experimental protocol that includes an fMRI scan, EEG tasks, a stressor task, survey-based measures, and clinical interviews. For both projects, the Program Coordinator will be responsible for maintaining up-to-date IRB protocols, screening participants, scheduling appointments, interviewing participants, and data management.

The Program Coordinator will use Microsoft Excel and statistical software packages (SPSS) for data management and online survey programs (RedCap) for data collection. Some irregular work hours may be required to accommodate study participants’ schedules. Applicants with experience in the following areas are preferred: clinical trials, conducting clinical assessments, leading focus groups, administering lab-based protocols, mobile app/electronic program development, and coordination of NIH grant protocols.
