Preferred Knowledge, Skills and Abilities
Good communication skills are critical given our research interactions with people who may be in stressful life situations as well as our multidisciplinary collaborations. We are very interested in candidates with high 'emotional intelligence.'
Flexibility is another key attribute that we regard highly, as is the ability to function well within a team structure.
Enthusiasm for—not necessarily knowledge of—electronic databases (e.g., RedCAP), use of apps for interventions and data collection, and webpage development is important as many of our interventions are based on these platforms.
