Parenting Intervention Video Study

We are looking for research assistants to help code parenting intervention videos as part of a federally-funded study. We hope to learn more about what makes this intervention effective in order to improve treatment for children and families.

Are you interested in becoming familiar with an evidence-based parenting intervention? Want to learn what actually happens inside intervention sessions? Would research experience on an NIH-funded project enhance your graduate school application?

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated research assistants for the Fall 2018–Spring 2019 academic year to become part of a team investigating the active treatment components in a parenting intervention program. Research assistants will have the opportunity to gain exposure to an evidence-based parenting program, code intervention videos, help with data entry, and get experience working on a dynamic research team.

Although this is not a paid position, we will work with successful research assistants to support their professional development goals (e.g., professional presentation, independent study credit). Interested students may apply online; preference will be given to students available for an in-person campus interview prior to fall semester.


1) GPA 3.5 or higher 2) Able to commit 5-10 hours per week 3) Willing to make a one-year commitment to project (Fall 2018-Spring 2019) 4) Be dependable and consistent 5) Capable of working independently and as part of a team
