Undergraduate Research Assistants Needed for Eating Disorder and Obesity Research Projects
The Living Focused on Reducing Excessive Eating (F.R.E.E.) Lab is seeking undergraduate and graduate research assistants to support various research projects focused on developing and evaluating interventions to treat disordered eating behaviors in African Americans and those impacted by poverty. We conduct mixed-methods research (e.g., quantitative and qualitative) to elucidate the mechanisms influencing the eating behaviors of underserved populations, and pilot interventions to treat binge eating and obesity. We are looking for undergraduate research assistants to assist with all aspects of the research project, including but not limited to conducting qualitative interviews, assisting with data collection and entry, data analysis, and dissemination of results through publications and presentations. Undergraduate research assistants are required to work for 5-10 hours per week, and attend weekly lab meetings. Applicants can receive course credit (PSYC/NSCI 395) or volunteer.
