I Need a Research Coordinator to Assist My Efforts in Prediction Technology

Looking for a rewarding career in cutting edge technology and big data analytics? The UC Institute for Prediction Technology bridges together researchers across University of California campuses to study how social data from social media, wearable devices, and online technologies can be used to predict real-world events in areas like health and medicine, politics, crime, education, and finance. While our work is broadly focused, most of our day-to-day work is with the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior where we study technologies for health and medicine. Under the direction of the Principal Investigator, the Research Coordinator will be responsible for day-to-day operations of assigned research projects and writing briefs related to research. Organize and monitor research activities, monitor students and volunteers, and maintain study files. Ensure timelines are met. Conduct community outreach efforts.

The ideal candidate will be extremely organized and detail-oriented. Must have a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree and greater than 2 years of research and/or work experience. Demonstrated knowledge and skill in current and emerging internet and social media platforms.

To successfully address these tasks on time, the Project Coordinator must have a broad set of intelligence, be extremely diligent and task-oriented, and an efficient worker. Excellent writing skills required.

Join us: Innovative Use of Technology for HIV Prevention & Care - January 23, 2014

I am chairing a one-day UCLA conference on Thursday, January 24, 2014 on current and future ways to use technologies among communities at risk for HIV. The conference, sponsored by CHIPTS and the UCLA AIDS Institute, will focus on how social media and mobile technologies are being used to address community health disparities, especially focused on HIV and drug-related prevention and treatment.

A keynote speaker (TBA) will present on the current future ways that technologies are being integrated into community health. We'll then have panel discussions on researchers presenting their work on how social media and health can be used for community-level HIV prevention, followed by debates between developers and community activists/policy researchers on the privacy and ethical issues that need to be addressed when using these technologies.

The event will take place at the California Endowment at 1000 N. Alameda Street from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Please email me if you're interested in requesting an invite or want more information.
