    Desired qualifications: A bachelor’s degree in Psychology or related field, experience conducting structured interviews OR previous research experience, interpersonal skills, attention to detail, persistence, flexible working hours (e.g. ability to make calls on nights or weekends)

    We are searching for individuals interested in serving as part-time (hourly) project assessors with participants enrolled in the federally-funded The Way Home Study (see abstract below). Assessments are conducted over the phone, take 10 to 15 minutes per assessment, and will be conducted at times that are convenient to participants and to assessors. Hours available per week typically vary from 2 to 10 hours. Pay is $20 per hour. Assessors must successfully complete all training and attend and actively participate in weekly group supervision meetings. An on-call licensed clinical psychologist supervisor is available to assist as needed.

    Our project accessor team presently consists of graduate student researchers in health service psychology (Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, and School Psychology). Students and researchers are affiliated with the University of Oregon, New York University, and the University of Texas at Austin. Team members may have particular professional development insight for applicants considering graduate study in these fields.

    If applicants are located in Eugene, Oregon, we may have additional hours available for tasks related to data entry.

    If interested, please send a letter of interest and CV to the project coordinator, Robyn Metcalfe, MS, at

    Project Overview: The Way Home Study

    We are evaluating the effects of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) on housing, criminal justice, and associated outcomes in the context of an observational “natural experiment” study (N = 230; n = 115 in the PSH “intervention” condition and n = 115 in the services-as-usual “control” condition) conducted across a 3-year period with recently released state prisoners who returned home to Lane County, Oregon. PSH is being provided through a collaboration of two non-profit organizations, Sponsors, Inc., a transitional housing program for men and women leaving prison or jail, and Homes for Good Housing Agency, a “hub” for connecting low-income residents to affordable, low-income housing and services in Lane County. Both organizations partner closely with Lane County Parole & Probation leadership and staff and contractors who will be providing onsite and community services to all participants. The project is part of a “pay for success” effort funded by an award from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development that is being conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Dept. of Justice and the non-profit advisory firm Third Sector Capital Partners. A mixed methods approach to evaluation is being employed, including quantitative and qualitative components. The listed position is a part of the quantitative arm of this study.
