PAN Job Posting: Positive Living, Positive Homes Study Coordinator

PLPHfinaldraft3Positive Living Positive Homes (PLPH) is an innovative community-based research project in British Columbia, co-led by Jennifer Evin Jones (Pacific AIDS Network) and Dr. Catherine Worthington (University of Victoria), and a diverse and skilled community-based team. We are seeking a full-time Project Coordinator to be involved in this exciting opportunity to be involved in research that will create social change. The Coordinator will coordinate and administer activities of this community-based research study.

This study was born out of the HIV community’s identification of housing as a critical health determinant for people living with, or at risk of, HIV and AIDS. PLPH will use a qualitative case study approach to examine how local and provincial policies and programs interact with and impact people living with HIV/AIDS’ abilities to manage their health and wellbeing and to highlight policies and programs that can be used as models across jurisdictions in BC. The study will be conducted in three sites in the province: Greater Vancouver, Kamloops, and Prince George.

The Coordinator will: assist in project planning and management; ensure that pre-established work scope, study protocol and policy, and CIHR regulatory requirements are followed; recruit and coordinate research participants, as appropriate; support data collection and analysis; serve as the principal administrative liaison for the project; facilitate team meetings and develop related capacity building materials and opportunities for research team members; provide administrative and logistical support to the team and investigators; supervise study site research assistants; and develop and maintain record keeping systems and procedures.
