    The Psychosocial Research Program at Butler Hospital is looking to hire 2-3 full-time research assistants
    to work on projects related to suicide assessment in a psychiatric inpatient setting. In particular, we are
    hiring for projects focused on the identification of novel risk factors for suicidal ideation and behavior
    using laboratory-based behavioral and physiological assessments, smartphone technology, brain
    imaging, EEG, and the analysis of speech patterns (Michael Armey, Ph.D., Heather Schatten, Ph.D., &
    Ivan Miller, Ph.D.) as well as treatment development studies for suicide (Heather Schatten, Ph.D. & Ivan
    Miller, Ph.D.). Start date is flexible. We are considering applicants who can start immediately through
    May 2021.

    Butler Hospital is a Brown University-affiliated psychiatric and substance abuse hospital located in
    Providence, RI. Butler Hospital is one of the earliest psychiatric facilities established in the United States.
    The Psychosocial Research Program at Butler is one of several active research groups at the hospital.
    Dr. Ivan Miller is the director and the program is comprised of academic psychologists, post-doctoral
    fellows, research assistants, master’s-level interventionists, and project coordinators. Research in this
    group is currently funded by numerous NIH grants, and the majority of this work centers on suicide
    prevention, post-hospital transitions, technology-assisted assessment and intervention, mood and
    psychotic disorders, and comorbid conditions (addictions and physical health problems) conducted in a
    variety of clinical settings.
