Graduate Research Assistant Position Available, Hubert Department of Global Health

Joshua Jeong (assistant professor in the Hubert Department of Global Health) is looking to hire a part-time graduate student research assistant. This is a paid hourly position with an expected commitment of 10 hrs/week. REAL and non-REAL applications accepted.
 
The student will support two ongoing cluster-randomized controlled trials of parenting interventions aimed to improve early childhood development in Kenya and Tanzania. The student’s role will be to support curriculum development process for a father-inclusive parenting intervention curriculum; assist with both/either qualitative data analysis of feedback sessions with participants during intervention pretesting cycles (Tanzania trial); qualitative data analysis of a recently completed process evaluation from the initial roll out of a parenting intervention (Kenya trial); and/or quantitative data analysis of the completed household survey with 600 caregivers of children 0-2 years that was collected as part of the baseline evaluation (Kenya trial). The student will also support preparation of questionnaires/study tools for another upcoming round of data collection this fall for another baseline evaluation for a separate study in Kenya; assist with conducting literature reviews broadly pertaining to implementation science of caregiving interventions in low- and middle-income countries; contribute to manuscript preparation; and support other project coordination tasks including taking meeting minutes, coordinating calls, and overseeing IRBs.

The ideal candidate would have research interests in child development, family health and wellbeing, and/or gender; experience coding transcripts and qualitative data analysis; cleaning quantitative survey data and descriptive analyses; prior field research and data collection experiences in low-resource setting. Summer internship and/or thesis opportunities can be carved out in these projects. Students who contribute sufficiently will be included as co-authors on resulting manuscripts. The graduate student will report primarily to Josh but closely collaborate as part of a broader team that includes a full-time research staff, other graduate student research assistants, and field partners in Tanzania and Kenya.

Interested students should submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample on a relevant topic to Joshua Jeong (joshua [dot] jeong [at] emory [dot] edu) by Fri, Sept 22nd
