The Women and Children’s Health and Well-Being Project is seeking a full-time research assistant to work on NIMH funded research on early-life experiences, brain development, and vulnerability to mental illnesses during childhood and adolescence. As part of the Conte Center at UC Irvine, our lab aims to advance the understanding of the underlying mechanisms involving disruption of the maturation of cognitive and emotional brain circuits. Our program is a collaboration between UC Irvine and Chapman University. Employment will be through Chapman University.
The research assistant will be responsible for recruiting and testing mothers and their pre-school age children, adolescents, and young adults. Other responsibilities will include overseeing IRB protocols, field studies of mood via smart phone technology, attending participant MRI sessions, and assisting the PIs with data analysis. Our program has been in existence for over 20 years. So far, more than 1,500 families have participated in our studies. Successful candidates must be committed to the long-term success of our relationship with participants and to careful and thoughtful data collection and analysis.
