Associate in Research

Psychology & Neuroscience 

The Center for the Study of Adolescent Risk and Resilience (C-StARR) at Duke University, a National Institute on Drug Abuse Core Center of Excellence, supports cutting-edge science on self-regulation during late adolescence and emerging adulthood. In addition to informing relevant prevention programs, practices, and policies, C-StARR is committed to the mentorship and training of the next generation of scientists studying the development of self-regulation across the adolescent years and the effects of deficits and skills at self-regulation on consequential outcomes. Of particular interest in the current funding cycle are the role of mobile device use in adolescent health and well-being and the antecedents and consequences of e-cigarette use by adolescents and emerging adults. 

We are seeking to hire an Associate in Research to serve as (1) a lab manager for the Hoyle Lab in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, and (2) a contributor to ongoing and new research projects in C-StARR. This position would support recruitment and data collection for three grant-funded projects examining: (1) self-regulation and substance use; (2) intellectual humility; and (3) memory and morality. 

Key responsibilities include: 
• Coordinating recruitment efforts with Hoyle Lab and C-StARR staff, including database management, participation tracking, and participant compensation. 
• Assisting with data collection, including programming Qualtrics surveys, piloting survey materials, distributing surveys via email and text messages. 
• Assisting with data management, including quality checks, data cleaning, and creating codebooks. 
• Training and supervising undergraduate research assistants. 
• Overseeing all lab communication and meetings. 

The Associate in Research will also have opportunities to contribute to research presentations and publications resulting from research studies. 

Preferred Qualifications: 
• Bachelor’s degree in psychology, neuroscience, or related fields; coursework in statistics and research methods 
• Experience with Qualtrics and Mturk or a similar online platform (e.g., Prolific, REDCap) 
• Experience or interest in working with diverse samples 
• Prior research experience in a psychology or neuroscience lab 
• Detail-oriented with strong organizational skills
