We are seeking candidates for a Research Assistant Professor. Please see the description and link below. The UNL – Center on Children, Families, and the Law (CCFL) provides an interdisciplinary, collaborative, and systemic approach to improve outcomes for children and families. This position will lead CCFL evaluation activities including projects for the Nebraska Resource Project for Vulnerable Young Children (NRPVYC). The goal of NRPVYC is to improve the outcomes of maltreated young children in Nebraska. The NRPVYC works both at a systems level in partnership with other Nebraska organizations and on a local case level with court teams, state agencies, local organizations, and local providers to address the needs of young children in the child welfare court system. Systemic work includes expanding and stabilizing early childhood evidence-based practices for young children, increasing access to early intervention services, supporting expansion of problem-solving and therapeutic court processes especially those involving young children, and utilizing reflective practice for professionals. Evaluation of several programs is led by the NRPVYC. These programs include the Lancaster Family Drug Court, the Douglas County therapeutic court, Child-Parent Psychotherapy training, reflective practice implementation, and Ice Breaker Meeting implementation. The selected candidate will work in a team-environment to lead program evaluation and analysis regarding the planning, development, and implementation of projects and will provide evaluation services as part of technical assistance projects. Evaluation services include developing methodically rigorous and theoretically appropriate evaluations, collecting and managing data, using appropriate and diverse statistical analyses, and writing reports for interdisciplinary audiences (i.e., judges, attorneys, case workers, mental health professionals, and policy makers). The selected candidate will take a lead role in building new program evaluation work and will assist in seeking new funding. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to supervise the work of Graduate Research Assistants and other evaluation staff, including undergraduate student workers assigned to projects. The selected candidate will possess strong self-motivation, excellent critical thinking, good interpersonal and time management skills. This individual must have the ability to adapt to new situations or issues and to adjust to the changing and dynamic environments of juvenile court and public mental health systems. The selected candidate must be willing to travel, primarily in Nebraska, including occasional overnight stays.
