We are looking for candidates that have a strong interest in adolescent development, racial discrimination, and Asian American mental health.

The research assistant will work closely with the project coordinator to implement and run the research activities, including:
Recruiting study participants
Setting up the data collection
Interacting directly with research participants (parents and adolescents)
Processing and cleaning the data
Behavioral coding of the data
Collaborating closely with the study team members across sites
The ideal RA will have at least a bachelor’s degree within the fields of psychology, mental health, public health, or developmental science and prior experience in engaging with research participants or with families in professional settings.
