Hawaii Pacific Health Research Specialist - Sex Abuse Treatment Center in Honolulu, Hawaii

Job Description

The Hawai‘i Pacific Health Research Institute (HPHRI) is dedicated to expanding our knowledge and investigation of the most advanced methods of health prevention in Hawai‘i. HPHRI researchers conduct more than 200 clinical trials within the Hawai‘i Pacific Health network of hospitals - Kapi'olani, Pali Momi, Straub and Wilcox Medical Center. The Institute oversees an impressive array of research projects, covering areas such as oncology, cardiology, emergency medicine and neonatology. It manages a multi-million dollar budget and a dedicated staff that includes more than 25 clinical research coordinators and up to 75 physicians. Our studies assure patient safety in all aspects of research as they break new ground in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

The Sex Abuse Treatment Center (SATC) of the Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children is a statewide program established in 1976 in response to the community’s concern over the absence of medical, psychological and legal support services for victims and the absence of police reporting. Today it is recognized for its leadership and expertise in providing treatment services for survivors of sexual assault, preventing sexual violence and effecting change through public policy, awareness and education. Our mission is to support the emotional healing process of those sexually assaulted in Hawai‘i, to increase community awareness about their needs and to reduce the incidence of all forms of sexual assault. Through research and education we also aim to improve clinical practices. By promoting and engaging in public policy we are changing public perceptions of sexual violence, overcoming barriers to treatment and prevention, and ensuring effective criminal justice practices.

As the Research Specialist, you will help to build a team of committed, caring and effective professionals capable of making that crucial difference in the lives of our patients and their families. In this role, you will perform a variety of routine and specialized research and analysis for the department. You will also assist with planning specific research procedures; develop and troubleshoot new techniques which have been written up in the literature, and propose alternative experimental procedures to ensure proper steps are followed. We are looking for someone dynamic and innovative, with excellent communication skills and a commitment to creating a healthier Hawai‘i.
