Under the direction and supervision of the Principal Investigator (PI) and the Project Director (PD), the Interviewer / Recruiter will conduct data collection and participant recruitment activities for the DuoPACT study. DuoPACT is a five-year NIH-funded randomized clinical trial of a behavioral intervention to improve engagement in HIV care for same-sex male couples.
The Interviewer / Recruiter’s primary responsibilities will be
1) data collection: conducting phone screenings, scheduling and conducting consent protocols and survey interviews, accompanying participants on phlebotomy visits, maintaining participant files;
2) participant recruitment: developing and implementing outreach activities and recruitment strategies, preparing and distributing outreach materials, developing and maintaining referral options for ineligible participants, maintaining the study’s recruitment database, providing recruitment reports to the project team; and
3) other assessment-related duties as assigned by the PI and PD, e.g., assisting with survey testing, performing data entry, cleaning and coding data, attending and participating in assessment team meetings.
This position requires a strict adherence to protocols and safety guidelines, with an emphasis on organizational skills and meticulous attention to detail. In addition, the successful candidate must possess a warm and nonjudgmental manner, and consistently demonstrate interpersonal tact, discretion, and sensitivity when interacting with study participants. These different job aspects are unique processes requiring specific experience and skill sets, and the Interviewer / Recruiter must blend and balance all areas to ensure the successful completion of research data collection and outcomes.
Due to a high number of interested applicants, we request including a compelling cover letter in lieu of direct department inquiries.
