News Date: Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - 11:00

Dr. Brandon Bergman is hiring a grad level per-diem Research Coordinator (RC) to work on various projects at the intersection of social network sites, emerging adulthood, and substance use disorder treatment and recovery, including an NIAAA funded K23 within the Recovery Research Institute at Mass General Hospital in Boston, MA.
Ideally this candidate is a current PhD or PsyD level graduate student looking to enhance their graduate experience with a paid, hourly RC position. While some of the work could be done remotely, there will be lots of activities where the RC needs to be onsite in Boston. Ideally the RC would be able to dedicate at least 5-7 hours onsite per week, with an opportunity to work more hours depending on their schedule and needs of the different projects on which they’re working.
If you’re a student for whom this sounds like a good fit, please consider applying. See below in bold for more detail on the position and how to apply. Note that candidates must apply through the MGH Careers portal. Please feel free to share in your professional networks as appropriate. E-mail Dr. Bergman (at bgbergman@mgh.harvard.edudirectly with any questions you might have. 
The Recovery Research Institute (RRI) within the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Department of Psychiatry is recruiting a per-diem Clinical Research Coordinator II (RC) to work 5-10 hours per week depending on project needs and RC availability in a given week. The RC will work with Dr. Brandon Bergman on his National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) funded study examining online recovery community participation among young adults in outpatient addiction treatment, as well as other research projects related to the intersection between social network sites and substance use disorder treatment and recovery. The RC will be responsible for helping with a variety of study tasks, including participant management (e.g., recruitment, enrollment, and follow-ups), correspondence with the Institutional Review Board (IRB), study data management, and assistance with grant finances. There will likely be opportunities for manuscript co-authorship depending on the candidate’s interests and contributions to the work. Of note, this per-diem position allows for current enrollment as a graduate student. Indeed, several job responsibilities will likely require a graduate-level skillset, including scientific literature reviews and basic statistical analyses. This individual will be joining an established team of faculty and staff, including other RCs. Dr. Bergman is the study PI and will supervise and support all RC activities. The candidate will ideally be able to start ASAP or early Fall 2019.
In order to apply, candidates must submit materials through the MGH Careers application portal at and search for Job Number 3096688.
