SEEKING RESEARCH ASSISTANTS
SPRING SEMESTER 2016
TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS 3:50-5:20 PM
Spit for Science: the VCU Student Survey (www.spit4science.vcu.edu) is a university-wide research opportunity for VCU students. The goal of the project is to understand how genetic and environmental factors come together to influence a variety of health-related outcomes in the VCU undergraduate population. A big focus is on substance use and emotional health problems, such as depression, since the life stage that college students are entering is a high risk period for the onset of these problems. We’re currently looking for students to be a part of the research team for Spring Semester 2016. Research assistants will be involved in recruitment, marketing, data collection and analysis, and other research activities. Students will work in teams to develop research questions and analyze Spit for Science data. Meetings will be held with different faculty involved in the project where students will review research papers and learn about topics related to the goals of the research. Discussions in class, and online, will reinforce class concepts. Required class meetings will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:50-5:20 PM on the Monroe Park campus. Students at all class levels are welcome to apply. Enrollment will be for three credits (A-F grading system). If interested, please contact Dr. Amy Adkins, firstname.lastname@example.org, for further details. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 28 at 5:00 PM.
