Subject:Job Announcement: Director of Research and Evaluation, Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Cornell University

Director of Research and Evaluation, Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Cornell University The Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research of Cornell University (www.bctr.cornell.edu ) is conducting a search for the position of Director of Research and Evaluation. We are interested in an individual who can help the center develop its research infrastructure and consult with center projects, while also pursuing an independent program of research. The position holds the academic title of Senior Research Associate. The BCTR is a newly created center that resulted from the merger of two established centers in the College of Human Ecology and includes research, training, and outreach projects, with the training and outreach projects conducting evaluation activities specific to their programs. The Director of Research & Evaluation will work closely with the BCTR Director and will serve as a member of the BCTR leadership team. The Director of Research & Evaluation will contribute to the growth and development of the research and evaluation capacities of the center, including building a strong data management infrastructure. Responsibilities include developing and maintaining the center's data management system; supervising data management and data analysis staff; providing research and evaluation consultation to projects within the BCTR; collaborating with BCTR senior staff and affiliates on research proposal development (research design, sampling, power analysis, data analysis); developing standardized approaches to data collection and data management; supporting training and professional development of center staff; and providing support and consultation to center partners and affiliates. The Director of Research & Evaluation will oversee a small data management unit in the center - funded in part with grant and contract funds - to help standardize our approaches to data collection and data management (e.g. use of web surveys, protocols for data storage and documentation, systems for maintaining human subjects records and documentation, etc.). To Apply: Go to: https://www.hr.cornell.edu/jobs/ clicking on external or internal applicants (depending on if you are a current Cornell employee), then the Faculty/Academic jobs link. It is job number 16518. A review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Qualifications * A doctorate in a relevant field (e.g. psychology, sociology, public health, evaluation, economics). * Strong technical expertise in program evaluation and/or applied research across multiple and complex programmatic efforts. * Demonstrated project organization and management skills, with experience in the successful implementation of community-focused, applied-research or intervention projects. * A record of peer-reviewed publications relevant to this position. * Demonstrated skills in both quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis methods. * Considerable computing skills related to database development and management. * Strong oral and written communication skills. * Demonstrated experience in working across disciplines and community settings. * Demonstrated knowledge of and expertise in working with federal agencies funding research grants (e.g., NIH, NSF). * Experience conceptualizing and writing the methods sections of successful research grant applications. * Demonstrated ability in assisting research teams to develop sampling plans and power analyses for a variety of research designs (e.g. RCTs, quasi-experimental designs). * Success in writing, securing, and managing grants and/or contracts, including federal research grants (e.g. NIH, NSF). * Strong experience in supervising research support staff and in developing effective research support teams. * Must be professionally self-directed. Cornell University , located in Ithaca, New York, is an inclusive, dynamic, and innovative Ivy League university and New York's land-grant institution. Its staff, faculty, and students impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas and best practices to further the university's mission of teaching, research, and outreach. Cornell University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.
