The Risk-Resilience Lab at UC Berkeley is looking for an interviewer who would work 20+ hours/week in San Francisco. We need someone who lives in the area, has good availability during business hours, is willing/able to conduct assessments in the community (with access to reliable transportation), and has excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. Ideally, this person would have experience or background in related research in mental health and/or criminal justice. The position will be at least one year, likely extending beyond. The salary is $18-21/hour, commensurate with experience.
This interviewer will work with a top-notch research team to collect data on a promising treatment program for people with mental illness who are involved in the criminal justice system. The study will rigorously test whether and how Interventions, a cognitive-behavioral group treatment (CBT), reduces recidivism for this population. The Research Interviewer will recruit participants, assist with randomization, and perform assessments (pre-treatment and post-treatment). Major responsibilities also include staying in good contact with the study team and tracking down participants in the community to obtain follow up data. Study results will be shared both locally and nationally to inform policy for justice involved people with mental illness. Please contact Sharon Farrell for details: email@example.com
