The Late Life Depression Program is a multi-disciplinary research group comprised of psychologists, neuropsychologists, and geriatric psychiatrists, at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in the Department of Psychiatry. The primary mission of this program is to conduct research and educational activities on a broad range of aging mental health service issues.

We are currently seeking a volunteer to help with a neuropsychological research study which has been federally funded to evaluate the effect of cognitive functioning and brain changes related to aging and disability in older adults with depression. As part of this study, subjects are administered neuropsychological assessments, and may have the opportunity to have an MRI scan of their brain.

Volunteer duties will include:

  • assisting with subject recruitment and developing relationships with local mental health agencies
  • tracking recruitment data
  • data entry, data coding and help with organizational duties
  • Scoring/analysis of a comprehensive battery of neuropsychological and psychological measurements
  • telephone screenings with potential participants

No previous research experience is required although a strong interest in psychology or psychiatry is highly preferred.

We are looking for someone who can volunteer approximately 15-20 hours per week for a span of one year. The hours are flexible within the broader clinic hours (9-5:30 Monday through Friday). This is an unpaid volunteer position.
