The Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors (CSHRB) is looking for research assistants (RAs) who want experience in qualitative and/or quantitative research. Project VERO is a study testing social psychological strategies for reducing vaccine hesitancy and reducing alcohol use and related harms. RAs will assist with coding interviews of vaccine hesitant young adults. Opportunities for training in data management, cleaning, and analysis – very marketable skills! Project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
