The Hamilton Lab directed by Dr. Jessica L. Hamilton in the Department of Psychology at Rutgers University is hiring a Research Coordinator/Assistant to join us starting Summer 2021! The Hamilton Lab conducts research on adolescent suicidal thoughts and self-harming behaviors, with a focus on the risk and protective roles of social media use and sleep. The position will primarily support a NIMH-funded study using innovative ambulatory methods to investigate social media and sleep disruption in adolescent suicide risk. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in every stage of the research process, including initiation and implementation of new research protocols, collecting, managing and analyzing data, as well as overseeing daily laboratory activities and supervising undergraduates. The candidate will be joining the lab in its inaugural year, and we are seeking applicants who are organized, creative, excellent at problem-solving, excited to contribute to and build the lab culture, and passionate about conducting research that impacts the community. This position is an excellent opportunity for individuals seeking to gain research and clinical experience prior to graduate study in clinical psychology or related programs.
The start date is Summer 2021. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled. There is an option for remote work during the summer with an expected transition to in person starting Fall 2021.
