The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services has an opening for a program research specialist. The Program Research Specialist 3 (CJ) will be assigned to the Office of Justice Research and Performance.

The incumbent will participate in a new process to conduct fidelity reviews of programs that serve criminal justice populations. The candidate will establish operating procedures, and work closely with local programs and other DCJS units. An understanding of criminal justice policies and programs is essential, as the incumbent will monitor program effectiveness and outcomes, analyze statewide program needs and coordinate with providers that serve criminal justice populations. Experience using SPSS or comparable software to analyze data is preferred. The incumbent may also direct or supervise the work of other researchers. Applications must be received by May 31, 2013.
