RA responsibilities include pilot testing our mobile and Internet interventions, participating in multidisciplinary study team meetings, attending seminars with guest speakers, conducting literature searches, helping with manuscript preparation, organizing and coding data, and more. Interested and highly motivated students can often work with one or more faculty members to analyze and present data through posters, conference presentations, or manuscripts. We prefer to recruit 2nd and 3rd year students, but will consider excellent 4th year students with a strong interest in the eHealth/mHealth field. Summer hours may be available (and sometimes for a paid position).

RA positions require 10 hours per week during the academic semester, attending a weekly student meeting, and a minimum 2 semester commitment. At present, all hours are completed remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, we hope to return to our offices as soon as it is safer to do so. When that occurs, RAs will complete their hours in our Center offices located at 560 Ray C Hunt Drive, in the Fontaine Research Park.
