    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    In the face of a very real possibility that I might not be accepted to a doc program this year, I wanted to create this thread to see if there are any members out there who have advice on securing a paid RA job? Where should I start looking?

    Thanks in advance.

    Southern New England. Between Boston and Providence, are some of the best RA positions that will help you gain valuable research experience. There are numerous top-notch research universities (Brown, Harvard, BU) and hospitals (Mass General and Lifespan). Someone is almost always hiring and I imagine many will start looking in the next few months to replace the RAs that are heading off to grad school.

    Also, I'd check NIH as I met many applicants at interviews that came from there and they all spoke highly of that experience.

    One note, try your best to find out about the positions before they are posted by contacting researchers that interest you. Many times these jobs are already spoken for and posting them is just a formality, BUT showing your interest in their research can open possibilities for other positions. For example, I interviewed with my current PI for a job that was already spoken for, but because I was good candidate they kept me on file and called me back 2 months later for a different position.

    Best of luck!

    A month or so back I was thinking of getting it started so a HUGE Thank you to whomever started this!

    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on RA positions in the Baltimore/Virginia (I know it's a big state)/DC area.

    Anyone currently working in the area who is attending grad school next year know there lab is looking to fill some spots?

    I know there are a ton of universities and medical centers but does anyone have any suggestions about how to go about finding positions? Any websites? Email blasts (how would one get on one of these??)? I am overwhelmed by USAJobs/GovJobs and I agree with what many people have said that most of the time positions are spoken for meaning the posting is just a formality.

    Do you recommend looking up labs and non-university affiliated centers for email address and send an email expressing an interest?

    Thank you!

    I'd email professors who do work, or similar work to what you're interested in. It's a long shot but even if you started out as a volunteer for 8 hours a week it could turn into more. Try to find out if the people recently submitted/received a grant. It's a hard field to get into, usually I think people hire from within - just get your foot in the door. I know it's not ideal, but volunteering is better than nothing, it will get you a letter and possibly a job before you applying to programs.

    Applicants are being sought for two research coordinator positions in the Department of Psychology at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, under the direction of Meghan Butryn, Ph.D., and Evan Forman, Ph.D. Drs.

The coordinators will have responsibilities that include scheduling and conducting participants' research assessments; managing data and coordinating data collection; maintaining contact and approvals with NIH and IRB; and supervising part-time research assistants.

    Opportunities also will be available, as desired, for the research coordinators to analyze data and prepare poster presentations or manuscripts related to the projects. Coordinators also have the opportunity to be exposed to and involved in other research projects that apply contextual psychology, mindfulness, and acceptance-based interventions to areas such as physical activity promotion and regulation of eating behavior. Candidates should have a bachelor's degree and have coursework and/or work experience related to the conduct of clinical research. Ideal candidates will commit to a minimum of 2 years in this position. This position is excellent preparation for individuals who wish to pursue graduate study in clinical psychology or a related area.

    More information about this research team can be found at http://drexel.edu/psychology/research/labs/weightloss/. Interested candidates should 1) send a resume or CV to Stephanie Kerrigan ([email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>), specifying "Research Coordinator Application" in the subject line of your email, and 2) complete an application here<http://drexel.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_agzbsgxqwRx48iE>.

    Research Assistant in Autism
    The Autism Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, directed by Dr. John Sweeney, has multiple ongoing research projects investigating cognitive and sensorimotor abilities and their underlying brain systems in individuals with autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. These clinical research projects are conducted in the Autism Center's clinical assessment and treatment services, providing many opportunities for active involvement in patient evaluations and discussions.
    Research Assistant in Psychosis Research

    Definitely, definitely, definitely email researchers in your field of interest (especially if they are familiar with your undergrad program or one of your previous mentors). List-servs and online job searches won't typically have any postings right now for all of the positions that are going to open up in the next few months (and who has time to check each one every single day). If you write an honest and detailed letter about your interests and reasons for wanting some paid experience, the worst thing you could possibly hear is that they don't have anything available right now or that you may have to volunteer for a bit until something becomes available (and if you don't get a reply, is that someone you would really want to work with for a year or more?). Also, when you are applying to an advertisement, make sure you spend some serious time catering your resume to each posting, and always (always!!) include a cover letter.

    I recently decided to go the aforementioned route in anticipation of the likelihood that I don't get off the waitlist in the next few weeks, and was gloriously rewarded with several responses and a job offer within 24 hours (I emailed ~12 top researchers in my field, and included my CV). I'm not saying this will be the case for everyone, but I feel like the response to my letter had more to do with the honest sentiment behind it than my credentials did.

    Good luck to everyone that's in this boat!

    In the summer I'm leaving a RA/Coordinator position at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. While my position is going to be filled by one of our part-timers who is graduating in the spring, there are other positions available on the staff, paid and volunteer, and other projects in the department. PM me if you'd like any contact information.

    Also, I recommend checking the Hopkins jobs website, new positions are seemingly posted weekly, all top-notch experience in my honest opinion.

    Summer Undergraduate Research Internship at the Gopnik Cognitive Development Lab at the University of California, Berkeley

    The Gopnik Cognitive Development Lab at UC Berkeley led by Dr. Alison Gopnik is happy to announce their new summer research internship. The internship will run from June 1st until August 17th (dates flexible). We are accepting applications now through April 16th. Please note that this internship is unpaid.

    Our Research: Our lab explores how children create intuitive theories about the world, other people, and themselves. We are particularly interested in how children come to understand the causal structure of their physical and social environment (i.e. how certain events make other events occur). Our current projects investigate the role of children?s causal learning in imitation, trait attribution, pretense, explanation, pedagogy, and even free will. More information about our lab can be found at www.alisongopnik.com.

    Our Summer Internship Program: The summer research internship is for dedicated and motivated undergraduate students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in developmental psychology or a related field. Interns will work closely with a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow assisting them on all aspects of the research process. Interns will help with experimental and stimuli design, recruiting participants and collecting data, analyzing data, and literature reviews. Interns will meet regularly with their mentors to discuss the theoretical motivations of the studies they are working on as well as the findings of other empirical papers both related to the studies in the lab and important to the field in general. Interns will also meet with their mentors more casually to ask them questions about their experience in the field and to receive guidance on their own future plans. The internship will culminate with an undergraduate research colloquium in which interns will give a talk or present a poster on the work they did throughout the summer.

    Interns will be expected to work 15-20 hours per week including weekends. Prior research experience is appreciated though not required. Experience working with children either formally or informally is essential.

    How to Apply: If you would be interested in applying, please send the following information to our Lab Manager, Sophie Bridgers ([email protected]), with the subject line ?Summer Internship.?

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is invested in boosting the participation of underrepresented groups in scientific research. Our group, the Laboratory for Innovations in Health-Related Behavior Change, has an NIH-funded obesity trial and has the opportunity to apply for funding for a research assistant position for someone with an interest in psychological research, and who meets the criteria below.





    The research assistant will have responsibilities that include scheduling and conducting participants’ research assessments and managing data. Opportunities also will be available, as desired, for the research assistant to analyze data and prepare poster presentations or manuscripts related to the projects. The research assistant also has the opportunity to be exposed to and involved in other research projects that apply contextual psychology, mindfulness, and acceptance-based interventions to areas such as physical activity promotion and regulation of eating behavior. Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree and have coursework and/or work experience related to the conduct of clinical research. This position is excellent preparation for individuals who wish to pursue graduate study in clinical psychology or a related area.




    If interested, please apply by Friday, May 3rd using this link (http://drexel.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_agzbsgxqwRx48iE), and also email a resume/CV to Lauren Bradley ([email protected]).





    --------------

    The NIH is particularly interested in encouraging the recruitment and retention of the following classes of candidates:




    A. Individuals from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis (see data athttp://www.nsf.gov/statistics/showpub.cfm?TopID=2&SubID=27 and the report Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering, 2007, p. 262). The following racial and ethnic groups have been shown to be underrepresented in biomedical research: African Americans, Hispanic Americas, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, Hawaiian Natives, and natives of the US Pacific Islands. In addition, it is recognized that under-representation can vary from setting to setting and individuals from racial or ethnic groups that can be convincingly demonstrated to be underrepresented by the grantee institution should be included in the recruitment and retention plan.




    B. Individuals with disabilities, who are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.




    C. Individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who are defined as:




    1. Individuals who come from a family with an annual income below established low-income thresholds. These thresholds are based on family size, published by the U.S. Bureau of the Census; adjusted annually for changes in the Consumer Price Index; and adjusted by the Secretary for use in all health professions programs. The Secretary periodically publishes these income levels at http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/index.shtml. For individuals from low income backgrounds, the institution must be able to demonstrate that such candidates (a) have qualified for Federal disadvantaged assistance; or (b) have received any of the following student loans: Health Professional Student Loans (HPSL), Loans for Disadvantaged Student Program; or have received scholarships from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the Scholarship for Individuals with Exceptional Financial Need.




    2. Individuals who come from a social, cultural, or educational environment such as that found in certain rural or inner-city environments that have demonstrably and recently directly inhibited the individual from obtaining the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to develop and participate in a research career. Recruitment and retention plans related to a disadvantaged background are most applicable to high school and perhaps undergraduate candidates, but would be more difficult to justify for individuals beyond that level of achievement.

    Best thread ever! Thank you for starting it. I work at NIH as a clinical research coordinator. I would look into the Intramural Research Training Program. There are some great labs especially in NIMH and NIAAA. I can post the link later. Good luck. I may also be searching for an RA type position if I do not get into graduate school this year. Let me know if you find any interesting ones in the DC area. :)

    Thank you once again.

    This thread is amazing! I've browed through the posts, but haven't seen anything in regard to positions in the Baton Rouge/New Orleans area. Anyone know of any jobs out this way? We have a large research center here in BR, but it primarily employs applicants with masters degrees. Thanks!

    Im bumping this thread because it was so uniquely helpful to the crowd that does not anticipate getting in this year... although i do realize it says 2012, its only a few months old now and maybe better than starting a new thread

    I'd greatly appreciate anyone who hears of anything in the Seattle-ish area to speak up, Indeed is not cutting it!

    edit; oh.. shoot. there actually is a 2013 thread already, sorry about that

    If anyone knows of anything in the Los Angeles area that would be FANTASTIC!
    I've seen one on hear so far, but it doesn't really match up with my research interests (child anxiety or depression)... any thoughts on whether it would be worth while to take a position in a lab that isn't quite in line with your interests just for the experience?
