Current NADCP Openings:

Project Director for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals/National Drug Court Institute - Annals of Research & Knowledge (ARK); Alexandria, VA

With funding from the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), NADCP is developing and implementing a systems-wide model for providing evidence-based services at each stage in the criminal justice system, from arrest through reentry.  Referred to as the Annals of Research & Knowledge (ARK) on Successful Offender Management, this model matches treatment and supervision services to participants’ risk-and-need profiles at each phase of criminal justice processing.

Deliverables over the next 2 years will include re-convening a national summit of more than 40 leading criminal justice organizations to continue working on the ARK Model, holding at least 3 state or county-level ARK summits per year, providing TTA to implement the ARK in at least 3 jurisdictions, and updating the ARK Model with exhaustive literature reviews. Other deliverables include development of an online curriculum on Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) and overdose reversal medications.  

The successful applicant for the Project Director position will be responsible, among other tasks, for managing all administrative and fiscal aspects of the grant, convening and presenting at multiple stakeholder meetings, developing TTA curricula and materials, and assisting with literature reviews.  The Project Director will report to Dr. Doug Marlowe (Chief of Science, Law & Policy) for scientific aspects of the project and to West Huddleston (CEO of NADCP) and Carolyn Hardin (Senior Director of NDCI) for administrative and fiscal duties. 

The successful candidate must have demonstrated experience managing or directing large-scale federally-funded projects.  A firm working knowledge of and experience with the criminal justice system is also required.  Familiarity with the arrest, booking, court, community corrections/supervision, in-custody and prisoner-reentry processes is a must. Candidates must have a good understanding of the behavioral and clinical scientific literature related to “what works” with substance-abusing offenders. 

Exceptional platform skills in public speaking, training and group facilitation are required. Candidates must also have exceptional verbal communication and technical writing skills and be able to operate in a high-demand, product-oriented environment.
