The PAD project is looking for research assistants for data collection and cleaning in Summer 2019. We are collecting daily diary and sleep data from 300 ethnic/racial minority 9th graders in Lansing area. Daily diary data will be collected for 2 weeks. The research team will distribute a tablet and a medical-rated actigraphy for each participant. Participants will report their daily peer experiences every night before going to sleep. They will wear the actigraphy tracking sleep for two weeks. After the 2 weeks, the research team will collect equipment and samples from the participants' home. Participants will be followed up annually throughout high school.
Responsibilities include visiting local schools for data collection, data entry and cleaning. RAs will learn ways to study adolescent development and actigraphy sleep. RAs will also have opportunities of conference presentations and publications.
