The Colorado Lab is looking for external researcher partners to support us in executing our deliverable-based projects with state and local partners and promoting knowledge-building through peer-reviewed publication and other scholarly dissemination.

Tell us your interests. We want to ensure that we are cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships with the research community. If you are interested in collaborating with the Colorado Lab, please let us know a little about you, your interests, and availability by completing this brief questionnaire. We will review your responses and be in touch with potential opportunities.

Current opportunities. We have two specific opportunities available in the coming months: 1) implementation science support for the Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation program; and 2) statistician/methodologist consultant to review research designs of studies targeted for the Title IV-E Prevention Services.

The project will begin in early/mid 2022.

Project 2: Statistician/Methodologist Consultants to Review Research Designs of Studies Targeted for the Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse. Support research teams as they design and execute evaluations of prevention services. Anticipated tasks include a) review and strengthen proposed evaluation plans; b) support research teams in identifying solutions to methodological challenges; and c) review evaluation reports and cross-walk to proposed evaluation plans to identify gaps.
