Research Coordinator (Temporary Position)

Texas Legal Services Center Medical-Legal Partnerships are integrative service delivery collaborations that produce better health outcomes by embedding legal staff within healthcare teams to detect, address, and prevent health-harming legal needs of families and communities. 

 

For example, such partnerships can force landlords to remediate poor housing conditions that aggravate a patient's asthma, increase access to care by helping patients establish eligibility for Medicaid, improve educational services for children with special needs, or help patients escape violent domestic situations. Our Medical-Legal Partnerships are with established nonprofit, clinical organizations dedicated to providing high-quality assistance to underserved Texans, as well as other organizations across the region. A national leader in practice in community health centers, Texas Legal Services Center's Medical-Legal Partnerships are part of a movement that includes over three hundred healthcare facilities.

Under this Request for Proposal, we're inviting applicants to apply for a Research Coordinator position. This is a temporary position that will be responsible for helping design, implement, and analyze a study of the health-harming legal needs of transgender and non-binary patients in Texas. This project will further promote the mission of our Medical-Legal Partnership, which allows clients to receive holistic, one-stop-shop services that meet their medical and legal needs in a coordinated approach. Primary duties, under the supervision of and in coordination with the Principal Investigators, include:
