Term: 2 years
The Research Coordinator will be primarily responsible for coordinating the implementation of the COMPASS study in school boards and schools across Ontario. The Research Coordinator is responsible for all communications with schools, including initial outreach to recruit participants, and the scheduling and management of data collection efforts within these schools. During the recruitment stage, the Research Coordinator will be the key point of contact for data collection implementation, acting as the liaison between the COMPASS project group and school representatives and providing detailed advice, process guidance, and overall client support throughout the entire data collection cycle. The Research Coordinator will supervise casual part time staff and provide oversight in the conversion of questionnaires to an electronically compatible format. The incumbent will also have oversight for all incoming data, ensuring completion, coordinating deadlines and ensuring the integrity and security of the data. Other research activities (e.g., report writing, training) will arise from time to time. The Research Coordinator will also support coordinators in other provincial jurisdictions, when needed, and will lead research efforts in Nunavut (as needed).
This position is contingent on funding.
