NOW RECRUITING SPANISH-SPEAKING VOLUNTEER UNGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS FOR THE 2020-21 ACADEMIC YEAR
Description: The Adolescent Depression Prevention and Treatment Lab (ADePT) is seeking undergraduate students to assist with clinical research. Research in our lab aims to increase the understanding of vulnerability to youth depression and to implement and evaluate depression prevention programs. Research assistants will be involved in an IES-funded study examining the feasibility and effectiveness of depression prevention programs delivered in Philadelphia high schools via telehealth.
Research assistants will be exposed to various aspects of the clinical research process (e.g., participant recruitment, data collection and entry, administrative tasks). Lab meetings provide opportunities to learn about the broader field of clinical psychology and to discuss issues related to professional development and graduate school. All activities will be conducted remotely for the fall 2020 semester.
Qualifications: We are looking for responsible, conscientious, and detail-oriented student volunteers who are excited to learn more about clinical research. Applicants must be FLUENT IN SPANISH. Prior research experience is not required. The position requires a commitment of 8 hours per week, preferably in larger blocks of time. Data collection may require traveling to schools throughout Philadelphia via car or public transit in the future.
