  • Job Opportunity at UC San Diego, Dept of Psychiatry: Research Assistant (Field Researcher II)

    Posted: May 9, 2023

    (View as individual posting)

    Opportunity: Gregory Aarons, PhD, and Erika Crable, PhD, MPH, at UC San Diego Department of
    Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC), are currently seeking a Research
    Assistant (Field Researcher II) to work on two research studies related to implementation of evidencebased practice and policy for substance use treatment. The implementation of evidence-based innovations
    into real-world human service settings is an important priority for improving the quality of services and
    population health outcomes. Dr. Aarons’ lab investigates what it takes to effectively implement and sustain
    clinical practices in community-based settings. His studies focus on the examination and improvement of
    system and organizational level factors affecting implementation and sustainment of evidence-based
    practices. Dr. Crable’s lab investigates dissemination and implementation strategies to promote the use of
    evidence in policymaking processes, with the goal of improving access to substance use treatment and
    harm reduction services for safety net populations.

    Project Overviews: The incumbent will assist on two National Institute on Drug Abuse funded studies. The
    first project (PI: Aarons) is an implementation science study assessing the impact of the Leadership and
    Organizational Change for Implementation – System Level (LOCI-SL) strategy, an organizational change
    and alignment approach for evidence-based practice implementation and sustainment. The LOCI-SL
    intervention seeks to improve implementation leadership, climate, provider attitudes and behaviors, and to
    support implementation and sustainment of evidence-based practices in substance use treatment and
    integrated behavioral health settings. The second project (PI: Crable) is a dissemination science study that
    aims to develop and test dissemination strategies to promote the use of research in policymaking processes.

    This project is focused on policymaking processes that impact access to medications for opioid use disorder for Medicaid insured populations. The incumbent will have opportunities on both studies to advance skills in mixed methods research, dissemination and implementation science, and health policy analysis.

    Responsibilities: The incumbent will assist in the management of day-to-day operations of a research
    study. Primary responsibilities will include: advising participants about study participation, maintaining
    contact with and tracking research participants, preparing and administering survey instruments, tracking
    and downloading data using web-based survey programs, managing data using SPSS and web-based data
    collection programs, conducting qualitative and quantitative research data analysis, and assisting with
    preparing reports and presentations. Other duties will be assigned as needed.

    Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have completed college level coursework in public health,
    psychology, anthropology/sociology or a related field, and possess knowledge of public sector substance
    use, mental health, and/or social service organizations. Please see the link below for additional

    Timeline: A spring/summer 2023 start date is ideal. Applicants will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the
    position is filled.

    To Inquire or Apply: Interested applicants should send their cover letter, resume, and any questions they
    have about this opportunity to Dr. Crable, [email protected], and apply using the following link:
