MDI National Lead - Posting #34978
HELP is seeking an MDI National Lead to coordinate aspects of the Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) National project, a population health research project that is supporting the use of the MDI in sites outside of BC across Canada and internationally. The purpose of this project is to encourage a greater understanding of well-being and resiliency during the middle childhood years by examining patterns of well-being in schools and neighborhoods across Canada through the use of the MDI – a population-based measure that provides information about children’s lives inside and outside of school. The incumbent will coordinate a range of tasks related to the development and implementation of a plan for sustaining the MDI national project annually. These tasks will include building a framework that allows us to efficiently scale the MDI to sites across Canada and internationally by developing costing models, licensing agreements, and resource/training templates. The incumbent will also act as the key point of contact in consulting with school districts and community contacts nationally; ensuring all legal and academic agreements are in place.
