RA needed to conduct time-series analyses of disease incidence data. Extensive experience using R and RMarkdown required. This is a 10-hour position starting 11/3/2014. Please send letter of interest and CV to Deb Osowski at email@example.com.
Research Assistant (15 hours/week academic & summer - 3 years)
The RA position will work with a small team on an intervention pilot focused on community education (using adult learning theory) to strengthen informal and formal support systems to prevent suicide in rural Alaska Native villages (see specific research aims here). The position will require some travel to Northwest Alaska and the building and maintenance of relationships with village leaders and service providers. The position offers a great opportunity to learn about intervention research, assessing and strengthening service systems for rural communities, community-level measurement of outcomes (particularly social network analysis) and community-based research.
The RA will be responsible for contributing to the development of a community education curriculum, doing community-based data collection and phone interviews, assessing fidelity through video-taped sessions, transcribing, and managing incoming data, coordinating pre-post community-based data collection, doing data analysis and contributing to translational activities. S/he will also coordinate the on-going booster sessions, and work with the PI and other team members to create academic and community products to share preliminary and final results.
Doctoral students will be given preference, but Masters students are welcome to apply. If interested, please email Lisa Wexler with a brief (one-page) cover letter and CV.
