Nature of Work:
The University of Colorado Denver /Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking applications for a full-time Director of Transformative Research Core. This full-time faculty position will grow and support the Research Core at The Kempe Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, Department of Pediatrics. Despite the magnitude and significance of the problem of child trauma and maltreatment, there is substantial need for the development of an integrated, organized base of knowledge and data collection efforts that can inform practice, guide the development of programs and policies relevant to the field, and shape the formation and testing of major hypotheses in this field. We are looking for an associate-senior level person to lead our Research Core with ethics, integrity, and compliance.
The Director will be a member of the Center leadership team that collaboratively oversees all Center functions.  This position will be responsible developing and directing a Transformative Research Core within the Kempe Center through organizational strategy and goals, providing strategic leadership, building and modeling a high-performance culture with strong engagement within and across programs. The purpose of the Core is to provide leadership and support to all research and evaluation activities, provide mentorship and consultation for faculty and fellows, work collaboratively to support proposal development, secure external funding, build research infrastructure and collaboration with community partners, and promote and facilitate publication activities, as well as to develop a funded research program focusing on integrated sciences in the child maltreatment and child/family well-being fields. 
The Director will also be able to strategically identify and anticipate potential financial or funding gaps and develop a program to manage a cache of research support funds; think about infrastructure needs with a strong plan of sustainability for personnel and a research agenda. This will require a higher-level view of research activities and support while meeting individual or program specific needs with a lens towards maximizing resources and complimentary skill sets to benefit the Center more broadly.
The best candidate will also be responsible for overseeing the development and successful provision of operational research services (regulatory, research coordination, and pre- and post-award financial management) as well as providing administrative oversight of all research activities (including proposal submission, contracting, study start-up, invoicing and close-out), and the growth and maintenance of the research infrastructure for the Center.

Examples of Work Performed:
  • Develop and oversee the research operations and strategic growth of a multidisciplinary Center focused on generating and testing ideas, discoveries or tools that radically change our understanding of current practice leading to new paradigms in the field of child maltreatment. Responsible for specific areas of interest including expertise in the development, implementation and evaluation of interventions to improve health either at the individual or at the systems levels.
  • Lead the Research Core team members to identify and implement a research vision and then, with the support of the Section Head, coordinate expertise (in-house and possible outside collaborations) to make that happen.
  • Develop and conduct original research as a Principal Investigator or co-investigator in the child maltreatment field, lead and support proposals to secure external funding, and contribute to our educational mission including teaching and consulting with post-docs and faculty across the various sponsored fellowships and other educational programs across campus.
  • Develop and lead the Center's collaboration with other health services and legal researchers and community partners. Identify outside collaborators to assist with complimentary project/funding ideas and opportunities and help raise widespread awareness of the research at Kempe.
  • Facilitate faculty career development including promotion needs and mentorship for faculty career development.
  • Develop and oversee a program infrastructure that includes continuous quality improvement activities that support implementation of programs or interventions, integration of data systems associated with several related Center activities and projects, and dissemination of project and program scholarship.
