The coordinator will provide project oversight, supervise undergraduate research assistants who are working on the project, and will also contribute directly to research activities such as conducting qualitative interviews with healthcare providers. Opportunities to work on other lab projects, co-author publications, present research at conferences, and receive training in ambulatory assessment research are available dependent on interest. This is an ideal position for a recent graduate seeking additional research experience and training before graduate or medical school. This is a mentored research position, and training tailored to individual professional goals (e.g., mentorship for graduate or medical school applications, support in networking with faculty in your areas of interest) is available.

Preferred Qualifications: At least 1 year of prior lab experience. Prior experience with any of the following are a bonus but not required: Qualtrics, qualitative interviews, systematic review.
Other details: This position is a one-year, 20 hr/week commitment. Work hours and location are flexible. Although some on-site activities at Emory will be required each week, this can be a hybrid office/telework position if desired.
