Project Description: 

We are currently running a longitudinal study, Transiciones, looking at the Transition to college in Latino youth. We are in the last year of this study. Our RAs are currently responsible for contacting our participants via text and phone calls to remind them to complete their on-line survey. Other lab tasks for Transiciones include transcriptions, coding, attending weekly lab meetings. We are starting a new year-long EMA study, LivesMix, funded by a grant from the US Army. LivesMix is the study of culture and diversity in the everyday lives of incoming ASU college students. RA responsibilities during the Fall semester will include contacting participants via text/phone calls encouraging them to complete 2x weekly short on-line surveys on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. We are looking for RAs who are willing to work at least one of those evenings and the following morning/day. We will also need help tracking participants survey completion and paying participants for completed surveys. Once we receive your current resume, we can schedule a brief 20-30 minute meeting time to go over all of this in detail!
