procedures for the administration of merit and need-based programs.

time-sensitive activities are completed within deadlines.
-Most supervision is given during training and once trained, only unusually complex issues are referred to a supervisor.
-A combination of experience and good judgment is required to be intuitive as to whether things are correct or not (e.g.
communicating with a student, working on core duties or on projects).
-Judgment is essential to determine whether they have all the facts required before making a decision or a recommendation (e.g.

Job Summary


Overview:
The Faculty of Medicine, Dean's Office, Research at the University of British Columbia is currently searching for a highly
motivated Research Assistant with interest in evaluation studies to join an interdisciplinary research team headed by the
Executive Associate Dean, Research.


The successful applicant will play a large role in collecting and managing primary and secondary research evaluation data. The
Research on Academic Research (RoAR) project is using mixed methods to study the mechanisms by which researchers at UBC's Life
Sciences Institute (LSI) collaborate, share what they know, and translate research findings into useful products for research,
practice and policy within BC. The mediating and moderating factors that facilitate interdisciplinary research, collaboration and
knowledge translation are also being examined. The RoAR team plans to expand the project to evaluate the research activity in
additional Departments Schools and Research Centres within the Faculty of Medicine. This research addresses a significant gap in
the evaluation studies literature - how relationships and research environment impact research products and outcomes.


Under the direct supervision of the Executive Associate Dean, Research, the Research Assistants collect data that is used to
evaluate the research activities of principal investigators who are working in interdisciplinary research centres at UBC. This
data includes, but is not limited to grant funding records, publication records, intellectual property data and primary survey
data. In the future qualitative data will also be collected through focus groups in order to more fully understand the factors
that encourage or discourage interdisciplinary research collaboration.
This position also involves some basic data analysis and reporting of results. The successful applicant will be comfortable
managing and graphing quantitative data.
Once a year, the RoAR team collects primary survey data in order to track longitudinally the opinions of UBC researchers on
interdisciplinary team science. The survey also asks questions about current research collaborations. Experience working with
online survey software is preferred.


The Research Assistants are also responsible for keeping the RoAR team up to date about developments in the data collection
process and will also organize team meetings and teleconferences. Superior organizational skills are essential in order to keep
detailed records of meetings and stay on top of important dates and deadlines.

The successful candidate will report to the Executive Associate Dean, Research in the Faculty of Medicine and will also work
closely with a second Research Assistant.


Work Performed


- Assist with the collection of primary survey data using a web based survey tool. Will also collect secondary data such as
grant records from UBC's Office of Research Services using their RISe system, publication records using mainly the Web of Science
database and intellectual property data from the University Industry Liaison Office (UILO).
 - The applicant should be proficient with analyzing quantitative data using Microsoft Excel and or SPSS, and will also be
required to interpret the data by preparing reports and presentations. The data analysis methods currently being tested by the
RoAR project (such as the bibliometric analysis of the publication records) will be taught.
 - Assist with interviews and focus groups to gather qualitative data from UBC researchers to find out about their research
activities. The main goal of the focus groups will be to ask predetermined questions about factors that encourage or discourage
interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers. The focus groups and interviews will be with principal investigators located
at UBC's Life Sciences Centre.
 - Update and administer the annual RoAR online survey.
 - Administrative duties include: arranging meetings and travel for RoAR team members, maintaining detailed records of meetings,
keeping the RoAR team updated as to important dates, deadlines, etc. Currently one Principal Investigator, 4 co-investigators,
and one Research Assistant make up the RoAR team.

Job Summary


Overview of Division: The Centre for Sustainability and Social Innovation was established in 2008 to engage a team of faculty
members, business leaders and students in the incubation and creation of new social innovations and enterprises. Social Innovation
involves the application of management intelligence to the creation of novel hybrid solutions to a range of social and
environmental problems. The Centre focuses on four strategic areas:
The incubation of novel social innovations and social enterprises
Research on the emerging field of social innovation
Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives with partners
Enhancement of human capital to improve social innovation capacity.
The open health initiative is a key multi year research study being conducted by CSSI in partnership with Mindset Media. The study
is a multi disciplinary study sourcing a variety of disciplines. This position would be focusing on social finance: defining new
financial structures of venture capital and investment banking. Research is primarily internet and library focused, however
potential meetings and interviews with experts in the field may be required. To investigate new financial innovation as it
pertains to innovative funding mechanisms for neglected disease drug development and delivery. The research will be divided into
two papers. The first, a briefing paper focused on new financial innovation, will examine novel funding mechanisms such as the
GAVI Vaccine initiative and advanced purchase contracts. The paper will also identify other relevant mechanisms from the field of
social finance. The briefing will involve a desk study of all relevant examples internationally, supplemented with interviews,
where relevant with key experts in the field. The second paper will look at novel approaches to the distribution systems including
established commercial channels for the distribution of household products. Many vaccines and treatments have been developed
through a 'technology-push' strategy where the initial focus is on the development and testing. The paper will explore the
viability of working backwards from these distribution systems to the design of interventions through a 'technology pull'
strategy.
