RESEARCH STUDY ASSISTANT, School of Public Health, Biostatistics

The New England Centenarian Study (NECS) is the largest study of people aged 100 and older and their families in the world. We are a dynamic group of physician and neuroscience researchers, statisticians and post graduate research assistants with varied interests regarding exceptional longevity. The study is based at Boston University and Boston Medical Center. The New England Centenarian Study believes that cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

Under the supervision of the Principal Investigator, the Research StudyAssistant will perform research activities using approved protocols and techniques, conduct study participant recruitment and enrollment, administer questionnaires and collect data by phone, mail and sometimes in person (when study participant proximity permits), perform administrative tasks and participate with the research team preparing data and other reports and ultimately manuscripts for publication. Opportunities exist for following through on your own research ideas and for authorship. A minimum 2 year commitment is required. This is an ideal opportunity for post-graduates with long term career goals in the allied health, nursing, medical and PhD arenas.

Bachelor's degree required.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
