    A full-time (40 hours per week) academic hourly position in clinical psychology is available at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, beginning mid-summer 2021. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is home to a top-ranked clinical psychology program, and this position would be a good fit for a student seeking to gain additional research experience in preparation to apply for doctoral programs in clinical psychology and/or a research degree in psychology or a related discipline. The position would include involvement with an interdisciplinary program of research exploring alcohol and substance use, with a particular focus on basic social factors that drive alcohol consumption. Current projects examine effects of alcohol in heavy social drinkers, employing both group-based laboratory alcohol-administration methods as well as ambulatory procedures employing novel transdermal alcohol biosensors. See below link for further information on our research program.

    Research Description

    The Coordinator of Research Programs will be trained in research in clinical psychology and will gain experience in study implementation, including participant interaction; data management; supervision of undergraduate research assistants; general research administration; and possibly assistance with the preparation of grants and manuscripts. Duties would include, but would not be limited to, the management of study data, the coding of participant behaviors from photos and video, and the recruitment, screening, and running of study participants.

    We are looking for applicants who have a passion for research, an eye towards detail, effective and flexible time management skills, a willingness to attempt novel and challenging tasks, and strong interpersonal skills. Other responsibilities could include, but are not limited to, data management, literature searching, preparing materials for the IRB, the reviewing of proofs, and the purchasing of lab supplies. Weekend and evening availability is required, as many of our study visits take place on weekends due to participant availability.

    Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to submit yours as soon as possible to ensure full consideration. A bachelor’s degree at the time of employment is required. A 2-year commitment to the position is requested. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications. Please submit a cover letter, CV/resume, copy of academic transcript (unofficial or official), and at least one letter of reference to Dr. Catharine Fairbairn at cfairbai@illinois.edu with the subject line “Research Coordinator 2021.”

    Minorities, women, and other designated classes are encouraged to apply.

    The University of Illinois is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer.
