Attached is a job posting for a full-time, paid position for a Research Project Coordinator at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. It’s a great way to get community-based intervention research experience with couples and some publications before applying to graduate school.
We are looking for someone to serve as Project Coordinator for two large-scale community-based effectiveness studies, along with administrative support for all research projects at The Family Institute. The Project Coordinator works closely with me on two studies. The first DOJ-funded study is a multi-site RCT testing the processes and mechanisms of change accounting for significant reductions in intimate partner violence in an ACT-based intervention. The second study is a prevention program for young couples that includes attention to multiple domains of relationship functioning (e.g., conflict, support, emotional intimacy, sex).
In practice, the job comprises about 1/3 of your time overseeing general admin tasks (processing payments, IRB, scheduling intervention groups), 1/3 of your time on substantive research with the team on the two projects listed below, and 1/3 of your time helping the team with data analysis, publication writing, grant writing, etc. for the two projects listed below.
