The Family Translational Research Group (FTRG) at New York University (NYU) is looking for talented, hard-working people with a passion for understanding and preventing family maltreatment and improving the lives of military families to join our team at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
FTRG conducts research on topics ranging from defining maltreatment in ways that can be reliably used by field workers, to determining how the way couples handle conflict relate to violence, to examining the effects of family violence on children's psychological and physical functioning, to furthering our understanding of risk and protective factors for child maltreatment and partner abuse. In addition to this basic research, FTRG is involved in large community-based prevention efforts (with both military and university communities) and in multi-level family prevention efforts. These studies use the full spectrum of research methods — from intensive observational tools to epidemiological surveys to intervention science. The FTRG is co-directed by Dr. Amy M. Smith Slep and Dr. Richard E. Heyman. For more information about our group, go to www.ftrgroup.org.
Researchers at the FTRG have (a) developed and refined definitions of partner and child maltreatment; (b) tested the agreement between master reviewers and installation committees; (c) assisted in the implementation of a new family maltreatment decision- making body; and (d) tested the dissemination of the decision process at 40 military installations worldwide.
For this next part of our research, we need a part-time research assistant to assist our full-time military site coordinator with data collection efforts for several research protocols. Research assistants will attend all clinically-relevant meetings regarding maltreatment intervention.
Candidates must possess at least a bachelor’s degree in psychology, social work, counseling or related field. It is strongly preferred that applicants have experience with (1) family maltreatment — clinical or research, (2) research — especially with relevance to family maltreatment, and/or prevention, and (3) military culture/military families. Fluency in computer applications (e.g., Microsoft Office), as well as video-based applications (e.g., Google Hangout, FaceTime) is required for training and supervision purposes.
NYU offers excellent benefits. Salary and title will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Please submit a cover letter and CV.
