We are an active, engaged, and supportive lab looking for students interested in working as a Community Nutrition Health Research Assistant. In this role students can select from four different research projects to work on: 1) a cooking project with adults and children; 2) a hands-on, activity-based education program on the UT campus to help reduce food insecurity; 3) collecting dietary intake records from adults over the phone; 4) conducting interviews with adults living in Tennessee about factors that influence health in the community. Students can work on more than one of these projects. Any of the projects can lead to the students presenting their own research at UT and other local/national/international professional conferences. All tiers are accepted for this position.
Tier 2- At least one previous research or education assistant experience. Students will be able to conduct literature review activities with direction and assistance; input data into software programs with training and oversight; and develop materials for use in research-related educational activities.
