Duties: We are seeking a highly motivated individual to work on multiple projects focused in three areas: 1) geographic access to primary and specialty care, 2) experiences of new Medicaid enrollees, and 3) urban-rural health disparities. The primary project examines geographic access to specialty care for prostate cancer and explores how disparities in access manifest as disparities in treatment. Pending funding, the research coordinator will also work on a project that examines consumer views on digital health information collected by wearables and smartphones. Under the direction of the Principle Investigators, the coordinator will collect data, manage datasets using Microsoft Access and Excel and assist in the analysis of data using NVivo and other statistical software packages. He/she will submit protocol modifications and continuing review updates to the IRB as needed and will conduct literature reviews and participate in the preparation of reports and manuscripts. He/She will also be responsible for coordinating projects between investigators at Penn and other universities and community partners.
Position is contingent on continued funding.
