RTI International Durham , NC 27701

Posted 2 months ago

RTI's Division for Applied Justice Research (AJR) includes four Centers providing research and technical services to support improved victim services, enhanced law enforcement practices, innovative forensics technologies, and state of the art courts and corrections research. RTI's Center for Community Safety and Crime Prevention (CSCP) conducts innovative and rigorous research that directly aids our understanding and response to victimization and community well-being. Center experts study issues related to the prevalence, characteristics, and harms associated with criminal victimization, police and criminal justice response, provision of victim services, and efforts related to crime prevention. Over the past ten years, CSCP researchers have led a diverse portfolio of research in human trafficking, including descriptive studies of the characteristics and experiences of those experiencing human trafficking, evaluations of local and national response programs, training and technical assistance for federally-funded initiatives, and other work.

CSCP is recruiting a Senior Researcher who will lead and support high impact, innovative, and applied research projects that contribute to an evidence base in human trafficking, and the understanding of victimization and resiliency in vulnerable populations. This position will extend CSCP's human trafficking portfolio, particularly with the US Department of Health and Human Services and US Department of Justice, by informing prevention and response at the provider, agency, state, and national level. Proven ability to partner with multiple stakeholders in the human trafficking field; to design and implement rigorous research; and to translate findings to academic and practitioner audiences, are essential to this position.

The preferred location for this position is Research Triangle Park, NC, Waltham, MA, Chicago, IL, or Washington, DC. Other locations may be considered. The position is permanent and full-time.

Our diverse team embraces our work and any challenges in an inclusive atmosphere that values work-life balance and creates global opportunities for career development.
