Duties

THIS PROJECT REMAINS ACTIVE BUT IS NOT ACCEPTING STUDENT VOLUNTEERS AT THIS TIME. STUDENTS INTERESTED IN DIRECTED STUDY OR THESES USING THE PROJECT DATA SHOULD CONTACT DR. CARCONE [ACARCONE@MED.WAYNE.EDU]

Students will assist with tasks that are essential for the smooth running of a research trial, such as transcription, data entry, the preparation of data files, literature reviews, and related tasks (we provide all necessary training). Students who demonstrate an excellent work ethic, enthusiasm, and a high degree of competency are often moved into positions where they can have a higher profile role in the research process, as deemed appropriate and of interest, for example, students who are interested in interacting with participants and analyzing data can performs these tasks as part of a directed study, thesis, or independent research project.
