We are looking for someone to join an exciting new research team at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY). The Gender Based Violence Research Laboratory is seeking to hire a full-time research associate to work under the direction of Danielle Berke, Ph.D. on several projects focusing on interpersonal violence. Research projects in Dr. Berke’s lab are both laboratory and community based, allowing for involvement in evidence-based initiatives related to violence prevention and intervention efforts to generate solutions to gender based social inequities. As this laboratory will be in its first year of operation, the research associate will gain first-hand experience in all aspects of setting up a research program for long-term success, such as applying for early-career grant funding, purchasing laboratory equipment, and creating databases from the ground up. Other responsibilities include assisting with key research functions including data management and organization, grant administration, conducting literature reviews, editing scholarly articles and IRB applications, assisting with participant recruitment, enrollment, and scheduling, and administrative tasks in support of lab projects. Opportunities for authorship on presentations and/or publications are available. Mentorship is highly valued in the lab and provided by the PI. Competitive salary and benefits are available.
Requirements: We are seeking an energetic, detail-oriented, highly organized and efficient, and research savvy individual with the ability to work and problem-solve independently (following training) to support the overall research operations of the lab.
A BA/BS in psychology or related discipline and minimum two-years experience working in a research laboratory is required. A Master’s degree in public health, biostatistics or a related field and fluency with statistical software (SPSS, SAS, R, Mplus) is preferred.
Anticipated start: September 2018
Duration: 2 years (a second year is secured after a successful first year review), with possibility of additional extensions. This position would be ideal for someone interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical, Counseling, or Social Psychology.
Inquiries: Resume/CV with accompanying cover letter describing research interests and career goals should be sent to Dr. Berke at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will be reviewed until the position is filled.
