RESEARCH ASSISTANT

TRX Development Solutions seeks a full-time Research Assistant to assist in data entry and coordination and other administrative tasks as assigned.

TRX Development Solutions is a private consultancy based in Brooklyn, New York, that provides program evaluation, grant writing, community research, and strategic planning services for organizations in the fields of community health, behavioral health, housing, domestic violence prevention and services, legal aid and access to justice, HIV/AIDS services, LGBTQ+ services and other supportive social services. The Research Assistant will join a team of four that includes TRX’s President and CEO, Assistant Director, Program Manager, and Assistant Manager for Data Collection and Analysis, as well as several consulting associates who provide short-term deliverables and long-term program evaluation for clients in New York (city and state), Massachusetts (Boston and statewide), Washington DC, and Los Angeles.

While based in Brooklyn, TRX is a virtual company in which staff and consultants meet and confer via Zoom.com, with monthly in-person meetings (though these have been suspended since March due to the Coronavirus pandemic). As a virtual company, we depend on frequent teleconference meetings to coordinate activities, and interpersonal contact between staff is essential and expected.

The Position

This position will be a full-time employee, paid hourly with the expectation of providing 40 hours of service weekly. The major aims of the position are to provide (1) data entry to support multiple evaluation projects, (2) quality assurance over data entry and coordination across multiple projects, (3) facilitation of data entry and quality control on a major national training program, and (4) other administrative or program-related tasks as designated and assigned by the CEO or Assistant Manager for Data Collection and Analysis. The person in this position facilitates the flow of high-quality data from our clients to the appropriate program managers and data analysts. 

This position is an entry level staff member who may be a recent college graduate, graduate student, or a person with one to three years of experience working in research or community and behavioral health agencies.

Duties

The Project Assistant will provide support for multiple projects, including:

·      Data entry and quality assurance for program evaluations and community research.

·      Data-basing projects, collaborators, and consultants.

·      Data-basing and coding of qualitative analyses.

·      Minutes or notes-taking for meetings for documentation of company activities.

·      Providing administrative support to the work of other staff members or consultants.

Job Specs

Although TRX is a virtual company, the person in this position is expected to be local to the New York City Metropolitan area and able to commute to periodic or monthly staff meetings. Such staff meetings will occur only in accordance with New York State Public Health guidance for such events in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Qualifications

Required: BA/BS (preferably in social sciences, social work, public health , or allied fields); excellent computer skills with Microsoft Office, Excel and virtual meeting platforms such as Zoom; strong interpersonal skills for problem-solving with clients on data collection; a strong capacity to learn and implement new skills; and an interest in community and non-profit sector work. The Research Assistant must have reliable phone and internet access and own computer. The company can provide any necessary software. Because our firm works with large volumes of private health information, we need all our staff to adhere to the highest standards of professionalism, respect for confidentiality, and privacy of our clients.

Desired

Administrative experience in community-based organizations in health and social services; research experience; experience with online learning management systems, survey platforms, and design software (documents, presentations, graphic display of data); experience with behavioral statistics and program evaluation; and graduate school experience in social sciences or a health-related field. LGBTQ+ identified individuals and persons of color are encouraged to apply. TRX Development Solutions is an equal opportunity employer.

Compensation and Duration of Position

Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with experience. The Research Assistant will be a full-time employee (W-2 tax status). The position offers paid vacation and national holidays, but does not provide health insurance or other benefits.
