Child Trends has an opening for a senior research assistant to work in our Youth Development area as part of a team implementing and evaluating a mindfulness-based healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) program for youth in high schools in North Carolina. This position will conduct school visits to assist in recruiting students, administering surveys, and supporting trainings and workshops for teachers. They will prepare intervention materials and work to support the overall research process including tracking program implementation, scheduling meetings, and processing purchases and travel reimbursements. The senior research assistant must, therefore, work from our North Carolina office and be willing and able to travel to schools within 2 hours of the office.
