Volunteer Research Assistant Position

The Cognition and Psychopathology (CAP) Lab uses experimental methods to study underlying chronic worry in people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and seeks to identify ways to tailor and improve psychological treatments targeting worry. We are currently looking for a volunteer research assistant (RA) to help with an ongoing research study examining the benefits of a novel “mental habits training” for chronic worry. Primarily, we are looking for someone who would contribute to this study through assisting with data management (data entry, spreadsheet organization, etc.) and recruitment procedures (managing participant interest, advertising for the study). This opportunity would be well suited for a student with interests in anxiety and worry who is interested in further developing their research experience and skills relating to data management and study coordination. We are seeking detail-oriented, self-directed, and interpersonally professional applicants who would be able to commit at least 8 hours per week for a minimum of 6 months.
