You will also have the chance to develop and refine your research skills.
The studies with which the intern would be assisting are part of the Biopsychosocial Mechanisms and Health Outcomes Program, with a focus on cancer survivorship. The intern will assist with various tasks in support of the studies, including:
- Screening patients for participant eligibility
- Sending letters/emails and making phone calls to recruit potential participants
- Conducting phone screening calls with prospective participants
- Tracking and follow-up tasks with participants
- Completing data entry and quality review tasks
- Miscellaneous tasks as needed
We ask that you commit 12 hours per week, which can be split among 2 or 3 days, depending on your schedule. Given the length of time it typically takes to onboard and train interns, we also request that you make a commitment of > 6 months for this position. Please note that you will be working on-site in our research office, located in the Streeterville area of Chicago. Interest in psychological, social and/or medical research is preferred; prior experience working with cancer patients is ideal. Spanish language skills are also preferred but not required.
