We are pleased to announce an opening for a Clinical Research Coordinator A with the Penn Collaborative for CBT and Implementation Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Clinical Research Coordinator A (CRC) will provide research support to AFFECT: AI-Based Fidelity Feedback to Enhance CBT Treatment- an NIMH funded research project, in collaboration with Lyssn.io, examining strategies to enhance the quality of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in community mental health care through artificial intelligence (AI)-generated fidelity feedback and supervision tools. The CRC will coordinate and support the development of study materials, screen, recruit and consent participants, collect and enter quantitative and qualitative data, create and maintain research materials and databases, coordinate communication with study sites including Lyssn and community partners, oversee undergraduate employees, and prepare and submit IRB documents. This position will also assist with maintaining and nurturing positive working relationships with community partners and study participants.

The CRC will also have the opportunity to participate in other activities within the Penn Collaborative, including support of activities related to the implementation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in under-resourced community settings, collaborative partnerships with community mental health providers and policy makers, ongoing development and expansion of our web-based training, and more. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in mental health services, community-based research, the role of technology in mental health, or dissemination and implementation research.
