Position Summary:

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) established the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) in 2014, a nationwide consortium dedicated to enhancing the training and career development of individuals from diverse backgrounds, communities, and cultures who are pursuing biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social science careers. During phase 1 (2014-2019), the University of Wisconsin-Madison was home to the NRMN Mentor Training Core. In phase 2, which began in July 2019, UW-Madison and its Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) is home to the NRMN Coordination Center (CC). Since 2009, ICTR has led local and national initiatives to improve mentoring relationships.

The NRMN CC coordinates the research activities of 11 NRMN Science of Mentoring U01 interventions across the country and provides feedback on the data collected from the interventions to maximize the research benefit of activities.

We are seeking a Research and Evaluation Program Manager for the NRMN CC. The role of the Research and Evaluation Program Manager is to assist the research and evaluation team with disseminating project outcomes and products with a variety of audiences. In particular, the Research and Evaluation Program Manager will use data visualization software to create visuals to communicate and showcase project progress, outcomes, research findings, and overview materials. The Research and Evaluation Program Manager will have knowledge of research and evaluation methods to ensure the accurate and appropriate representation of findings. The Research and Evaluation Program Manager will also be responsible for developing, maintaining, tracking, and serving as the point of contact for users on collaborative research products such as the CIMER Assessment Platform, measurement libraries, and data hubs.

This position will report directly to the Research Director. In particular, this individual will be adept at implementing creative solutions, working independently, and developing efficient systems. This individual must demonstrate attention to detail, strong organization skills, and an openness to changing priorities as well as the ability to work on a variety of project components simultaneously. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
