Research Assistant Rhode Island MIDAS Project

The Rhode Island Methods to Improve Diagnostic Assessment and Services (MIDAS) project is looking to hire a research assistant (RA), with a potential start date of May/June 2014.  Candidates should be a recent or upcoming college graduate with a psychology or neuroscience major and an interest in going to graduate or medical school. In the Rhode Island Hospital outpatient psychiatry and partial hospital practices, we have integrated research assessments into clinical practice. The MIDAS project is one of the largest clinical epidemiological studies using semi-structured diagnostic interviews ever conducted, and we have published more than 200 papers from our database (see MIDASproject.org for a list). The RA will be trained in conducting diagnostic interviews and writing clinical reports. The RA will also be responsible for managing databases and entering data, submitting IRB applications, recruiting participants, and conducting other tasks associated with various ongoing assessment and treatment research projects in the outpatient and partial hospital practices. Opportunities are available (and encouraged) for presenting research at national meetings and writing manuscripts for publication. Prior research assistants have had a 100% success rate at getting into graduate and medical school.

Please send applications (cover letter and CV) to Ms. Deb Lemieux at dlemieux@lifespan.org. For additional information or questions about the position, please contact Mark Zimmerman, M.D. (mzimmerman@lifespan.org) or Kristy Dalrymple, Ph.D. (kristy_dalrymple@brown.edu).
