Position Primary Purpose and General Responsibilities
The newly formed Center for Evidence-based Partnerships in Virginia (CEPVa) is seeking a project coordinator to join a small team of researchers led by Dr. Michael Southam-Gerow. The Center was developed to provide technical assistance to the behavioral health-related governmental agencies of Virginia. The coordinator would provide assistance for a state-funded service project designed to assess the needs (e.g., behavioral health, substance use) of youth and families within the child welfare system, and then coordinate training events to address those needs.

Key duties will include general administrative functions (e.g., communications), in-person and virtual event planning and coordination, and maintenance of established data management systems. Responsibilities will also involve significant public-facing activities that will require flexibility, timely responsiveness, and skills for working with individuals from various educational and occupational backgrounds. The position will involve some travel (reimbursable) around the state of Virginia for training events.
