Postgraduate Research Opportunities (PAID)

Posted 8/11/16: The Vietnamese Caregiver Study within the Department of Neurology at the UC Davis School of Medicine is seeking a project coordinator for a research study on dementia caregiving in the Vietnamese community. The principal investigator in this study is Dr. Oanh Le Meyer, faculty member at the UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Center in the Department of Neurology. Alongside Dr. Meyer, the project coordinator will have the opportunity to work with community-based partners in the Sacramento area to coordinate an intervention study that helps families taking care of someone with dementia. The project coordinator will oversee and manage the day-to-day activities of the study, including but not limited to participant recruitment and engagement, data management, and research assistants’ tasks. He/she will gain valuable experience in the entire process of research – from developing IRB protocols to interviewing research participants to coding and analyzing mixed methods data. The project coordinator will also have the opportunity to be a co-author on presentations and papers. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about intervention research in a community-based setting with an understudied and high disparity population.

Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in a social science or related field, however, advanced undergraduate students (junior or senior) may qualify if they have excellent writing and oral skills. Must be fluent in Vietnamese (oral required, written preferred). The project coordinator should have a valid California driver’s license and be able to travel to Sacramento for lab meetings, intervention sessions, and meetings with community partners. This is a one-year, part-time (25-50%), paid opportunity with potential for full-time employment (salary commensurate with level of experience).  A cover letter and resume should be submitted to Dr. Oanh Meyer at olmeyer@ucdavis.edu as soon as possible. Position to start Sept/Oct 2016.
