UIC's Department of Biomedical and Health Information Science's SAFE-T lab is currently in need of some volunteer undergraduates interested in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and/or Human Factors Psychology to serve as research assistants in our lab for the Fall semester. Key responsibilities will include:
- Conducting literature reviews
- Reading scholarly articles
- Writing sections of reports, papers (based on writing abilities)
- Preparing and helping to edit presentations
- Data entry, transcription, and analysis
- Development of their own research ideas that can be presented at conferences, class projects, etc.
- Other day to day research activities on both applied and academic research projects as needed
In return for your assistance, I am happy to write recommendation letters for hardworking RAs who would like to go on to graduate school, provide advice and mentorship on how to get into graduate programs or jobs, and facilitate the development of student led research projects (including Vice Chancellor Research Awards, Independent Research courses and Distinction in the Major). Projects that RAs will be working on are related to teams, electronic health records, health information technologies, sociotechnical systems, and simulation, with emphasis on applied projects in the medical field. Students interested in computer science, Industrial Engineering, Pre-med/dentistry/pharmacy/nursing, patient safety, and/or Human Factors Psychology are especially encouraged to apply.
I request that RAs volunteer a minimum of 10 hours per week for the Fall semester.
Anyone who is interested can email the attached application along with resume and availability for an interview from 8:00am-6:00pm Mondays-Fridays to firstname.lastname@example.org
