Under the supervision of the PIs and working in close cooperation with other study investigators and community partners, the Research Coordinator will be responsible for coordinating community-engaged research addressing inequities in mental health, sexual/reproductive health, HIV, and related health disparities among asylum-seeking women at the Mexico-U.S. border. Specifically, this position will support two Tijuana-based studies being conducted in collaboration with El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, Al Otro Lado, and the Mexico-U.S. Border Health Commission: 1) an NIMH-funded study to adapt and pilot-test a novel mental health prevention intervention for migrant mothers with young children, and 2) a Center for AIDS Research (CFAR)-funded study evaluating the social-structural ‘risk environment’ for syndemic sexual health and HIV, STI and TB inequities among asylum-seeking women in Tijuana.
Study coordination responsibilities will include assisting with the development and management of data collection systems and study protocols, overseeing recruitment, enrollment, and retention of study participants, conducting and overseeing study visits, training and supervising research staff (interviewers/outreach workers, nurse/phlebotomist), delivering intervention and control protocols to study participants, ensuring protocol compliance, assisting with human subjects submissions, organizing and attending team meetings, liaising with community partners, coordinating community engagement activities, and managing and prioritizing tasks to meet multiple daily deadlines. Overall, we are seeking a bilingual, flexible, detail-oriented, and well-organized candidate who has worked with migrant women or asylum-seekers, understands sexual health, HIV, and mental health research, and feels comfortable working directly with local community-based organizations, stakeholders, and research participants in a binational context.
