The Research Associate will be involved in a range of federal and foundation funded studies that examine practice improvements in the primary care setting. The person in this position will work with the principal investigator to develop data collection tools, collect and manage data collection. Much of the data we collect will be qualitative (e.g. observation and interviews), and some expertise in this area will be helpful. However, the Research Associate may also administer and collect surveys from practice members. In addition to playing a key role in data collection activities, the Research Associate will be primarily responsible for: taking notes in study team meetings, coordinating the logistics of data collection, and carrying out administrative tasks central to study activities (e.g. scheduling meetings, working with the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
The Research Associate will also play a key role in the data analysis process. This will involve participating in analysis meetings and working with the principal investigator to analyze and code qualitative data. The Research Associate will also assist the PI in dissemination activities. This will involve conducting literature searches, synthesizing literature and drafting sections of manuscripts (authoring publications), as well as preparing abstracts, posters and presentations and attending national conferences. The Research Associate will also have opportunities to assist with grant writing for upcoming funding.
