at understanding why people engage in behaviors that are intentionally harmful to themselves
(e.g., nonsuicidal self-injury and suicidal behavior). The Lab Manager will gain experience with
all aspects of the research process, which could serve as a launch pad to graduate studies. The
Lab Manager will have opportunities to present data at national psychology conferences and to

• Excellent organizational skills
• Strong communication skills to maintain excellent rapport with adolescents and their families
• Must demonstrate the ability to work independently
• Experience with Word, Excel, Google docs/calendar
