Research Coordinators support the Research Department in web-based data collection (such as online surveys) and analysis of the project data. Research Coordinators develop and maintain projects in REDCap related to data collection and evaluation needs of the organization. This may include projects for internal programs and administrative departments, GuideTree development, Partner organizations, and external collaborators. This position focuses heavily on data quality, ensuring that data is collected and reported accurately and efficiently based on project needs. Projects can cover a wide variety of needs, such as collecting data for Program Model Reviews, post-discharge client surveys, staff satisfaction and feedback, and contractual data requirements, etc. Research Coordinators work with staff in other departments (Clinical Services, Partners, Residential, etc.) to ensure project needs are met in a timely manner. Projects may be ad hoc to address a specific one time need or ongoing that require continued maintenance. Most projects occur on a set schedule (monthly, quarterly, or annually), but Research Coordinators must be flexible and willing to take on ad hoc tasks.
