Research Assistant III
Center for Technology & Behavioral Health
The Research Assistant (RA) will play a key role in a research project examining the use of smartphones and wearable sensors in monitoring depressive symptoms. More specifically, the RA will be responsible for assisting with preparation of IRB materials and study protocols, drafting progress reports to the study investigation team, participant recruitment, data collection and completion of participant follow-up assessments. A research assistant will be responsible for reviewing screening data from an online survey platform to determine who screens positive for major depressive disorder, and the research assistant will also be responsible for contacting those persons regarding their possible participation in the study. The research assistant will then be responsible for scheduling participants' diagnostic interviews with the postdoctoral fellow following the screen. The research assistant will also be responsible for most of the primary routine contact with participants, including contacting participants if they are showing signs of non-compliance with study procedures (after being advised of this by the graduate research assistant), as well as conducting participant check-ins and debriefs. The research assistant will also be responsible for managing a phone messaging system and answering questions from participants. The research assistant will be responsible for mailing the wearable devices to participants. The research assistant will perform financial analysis and prepare management reports and projections for ongoing project activities. In addition, the research assistant will communicate with investigators regarding fiscal matters. The research assistant will be responsible for communicating with the graduate research assistant to determine the reimbursement rate based on participant compliance. If participants report that there are problems with app or wearable devices, the research assistant will coordinate with a graduate research assistant and study PI and co-Is.
Employment in this position is contingent upon consent to and successful completion of a pre-employment background check, which may include a criminal background check, reference checks, verification of work history, and verification of any required academic credentials, licenses, and/or certifications, with results acceptable to Dartmouth College. A criminal conviction will not automatically disqualify an applicant from employment. Background check information will be used in a confidential, non-discriminatory manner consistent with state and federal law.
