Research Study Assistant

The New England Centenarian Study (NECS) is the largest study of people aged 100 and older and their families in the world. We are a dynamic group of physician and neuroscience researchers, statisticians and post-graduate research assistants with varied interests regarding exceptional longevity and healthy aging. The study is based at Boston University. The NECS believes that cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to have join our ranks colleagues who support our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

 

The NECS recently received a NIH award it titles 'Resilience and Resistance to Alzheimer's Disease in Centenarians and Offspring (RADCO' and is looking to hire a research study assistant (RA) to work on this exciting study. Under the supervision of the Principal Investigators and the Research Project Manager, the RA will be responsible for collection and management of study participant data. Data collection will include working as a member of a team with other research assistants including from other study centers, to collect clinical data from study participants ages 35 years to over 110 years during video home visits. Data include cognitive and physical function measures. Additionally, annual follow-up data will be collected via mailed and telephone-administered questionnaires. For participants living within 3 hours driving of Boston, RA's will perform a bried visit with the participant primarily to obtain their blood sample. The RA will receive standardized training to collect these data. 

 

Required Skills

Previous phlebotomy experience is desirable though willingness to take part in a phlebotomy course to learn these skills is also acceptable. The home visits to collect the blood sample require a valid driver's license. The RA may have the opportunity to participate in specific research projects within the study that are of interest to them and they will have the opportunity to analyze data, author and present results for national academic meetings as well as author papers for publication.
