Research Participants

ANCHoR occasionally enrolls youth from the community to help us improve health programming for adolescents and young adults, but we are not currently recruiting for any research studies.

Lab Volunteers

We will consider applications from prospective volunteers, including URI psychology students. Available openings and activities depend on current lab projects. Opportunities may include experience in data coding and entry, data management techniques, introduction to fMRI research processes, human subjects research training (e.g., CITI), project mentoring by ANCHoR clinical psychology PhD students, journal club, lab meetings, supportive administrative tasks, and more. We require a minimum in-person commitment of 2-3 credits (6-9 hours per week).

Thank you for your interest!
