Incumbents in positions at this level perform the full range of work related to program and policy research, analysis, development, evaluation, and/or operational and fiscal analysis related to an administrative specialty. Work requires applying a theoretical knowledge base to develop recommendations and conclusions. Incumbents often serve as program administrators.
PLEASE NOTE: This project is willing to accommodate candidates based on their availability and/or desired hours worked per week from 30-40hrs.
The incumbent will be responsible for daily oversight and coordination of a newly funded, 3-year research study, “Exposure to Tobacco, E-Cigarette, and Marijuana in Multi-unit Housing”. In addition, the incumbent will provide support to other research projects at the Measurement & Evaluation Research Group (MERG). The aims of the new study are to collaborate with community partners to identify nonsmokers living in multi-unit housing who believe they are exposed to tobacco or marijuana smoke or electronic cigarette vapor (TEM) from their neighbors. We will collect air, surface, and dust samples in participants’ homes, and biological samples and personal information from participants to determine specific markers of TEM pollution in the home environment and TEM exposure in participants. We will select a subset of confirmed TEM exposed participants with whom we will jointly develop strategies for leveraging measures collected in their homes to enforce existing MUH policies or introduce new policies about TEM use.
Please note that due to the potential for the contamination of study samples, the incumbent must be a nonsmoker and nonuser of tobacco, electronic cigarettes, and marijuana, and must reside with nonsmokers/nonusers.
