The Center for Public Partnerships and Research (CPPR) seeks a full-time Assistant Researcher to conduct program evaluation and data management for small and large-scale initiatives. CPPR specializes in research and evaluation, data science projects, and social innovation work that supports our mission to optimize the well-being of children, youth, and families. CPPR primarily pursues its mission by assisting partners, including state-level and community based organizations, in their work to secure funding, bring key stakeholders to the table, orchestrate large-scale data efforts, and conduct research, cost analysis, and evaluation. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about impacting social change for good. The person in this position will promote healthy, happy, thriving communities by conducting evaluations of new or existing programs. The successful applicant should have prior experience working with multiple community stakeholders, collecting and reporting quantitative and qualitative data, and interpreting and synthesizing findings and subsequent key patterns with partners outside of the academic community to be used in broader strategic planning. The applicant should also be able to facilitate continuous quality improvement (CQI) and successfully communicate gaps in data sets. Experience working on issues related to maternal and child health is helpful. This position is contingent upon funding.
This position may be based at CPPR’s Lawrence or Kansas City offices.
