- Routine activities: RA III's work under the supervision of one or more investigators to provide domain-specific scientific knowledge and research expertise (e.g., knowledge about epi methods, qualitative or quantitative data analyses, intervention design and implementation, etc.) to the projects they support and the Institute, but are senior scientists in this career track and require minimal oversight. They are expected to attend faculty meetings, scientific seminars, and other faculty activities. They independently manage their FTE/work demands and secure future collaborations. On occasion, an RA III may receive approval to submit grants as the Principal Investigator (PI) and lead independent projects. With prior approval from institute leadership, on occasion RA III's may supervise RA I's or II's.
- Scientific writing: RA III's will draft significant portions of grants proposals and scientific papers, but are also expected to serve as lead author on scientific papers and presentations and their performance will be judged in part on this productivity.
- Service: RA III's are expected to engage in annual service including service to the organization (KPWHRI or KPWA), local research community (e.g., UW, FHCRC), and national organizations (e.g., professional societies, research funders). Appropriate scientific service includes peer mentoring, serving on committees, teaching, and professional consulting with KPWA leadership, peer review of scientific journals and peer review of research applications. Annual performance will be judged in part on participation in these activities.
