RAs will complete responsible conduct of research and good clinical practices training. They will assist with project management, participant recruitment, and data collection via screening surveys, interviews and laboratory sessions. RAs will be responsible for entering data and assisting with systematic/scoping reviews and meta-analyses.
Data collection can include administration of physiological measures (e.g., heart rate, skin conductance, blood pressure), behavioral measures (e.g., decisions during computer simulations and responses to stimuli presentation), and cognitive measures (e.g., sexual risk perception and emotion recognition).
Selected professional and reliable RAs will be considered for training in alcohol administration. During alcohol administration sessions, RAs are responsible for interacting with participants while they consume alcohol.RIISC Lab RA Roles & Responsibilities
