Research Assistant Position - Brooklyn, New York

The Center for Anxiety™ invites applications for the position of lead Research Assistant (RA). This is a full-time salaried position (40 hours/week; 2000 hours/year) for a period of 1-2 years, starting on or before August 15th, 2015. The primary role of the RA will be to spearhead our Clinical Measurement Initiative (CMI) to systematically evaluate treatment outcomes in the dissemination of culturally-sensitive, evidence-based treatments. The RA will implement and oversee the process of data collection with patients, and provide monitoring and reporting to our clinical team in order to provide clinically meaningful metrics that will inform patient care in real-time. Further, the CMI will effectively serve as a naturalistic clinical laboratory to support research productivity. The RA will therefore also manage additional ongoing projects and studies, and assist with organization of datasets, conducting data analyses, proofing and formatting references for peer-reviewed articles or books, helping to create posters and talks for scientific conferences,
and related tasks. In the context of these research roles, the RA will have clinical training opportunities including learning how to administer a structured clinical assessment for DSM diagnoses, participating in our weekly clinical rounds and case presentations, as well as observing and potentially playing a limited role in the provision of individual and group behavior therapy for adults and/or children. In addition, approximately 25% of the RA’s time will involve serving as personal assistant to our director David H. Rosmarin, PhD, to coordinate a weekly national travel schedule, manage appointments and personal correspondences with patients, clinicians, editors, and other researchers, and administrative tasks such as managing our monthly email newsletter and website. Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, current Curriculum Vitae and two letters of recommendation to the attention of David H. Rosmarin, PhD. via email (info@centerforanxiety.org).
