This position is very eclectic as our section has to respond to a wide range of needs and requests and we are often expected to produce novel solutions to complex problems. While the uncertainty of the next assignment can be challenging, it is also very rewarding and the incumbent can expect to learn a lot about the criminal justice field.
In general, the incumbent will provide subject-matter expertise in the operational planning, development, and execution of a wide variety of complex projects including employment testing, training outcomes measurement, and in-depth research of criminal justice topics. Examples of work activities include (1) defining and updating content domains for both cognitive and skills assessments, (2) selecting and/or developing appropriate measurement constructs, (3) conducting validation studies, (4) conducting ad-hoc research studies in support of criminal justice standards and training, (5) conducting job analysis, (6) developing legally defensible and empirically supported policies and procedures for testing, hiring, training, and promoting individuals, and (6) authoring technical reports, research summaries, and white papers. All of these activities can be summarized as translating sound but abstract theories into practical procedures.
This is a full-time, permanent position with full State of Florida benefits. The position may require some travel within the State of Florida, primarily to facilitate workshops. This position is located at FDLE’s headquarters in Tallahassee, Florida.
Salary will be set commensurate with experience.
