The UCSF Bioethics Program is seeking a part-time research assistant to work on a new project to develop and pilot test an innovative approach to communicating aggregate research results to participants. The project is part of a four-year genomics study at UCSF called the Program in Prenatal and Pediatric Genomic Sequencing (P3EGS), which has enrolled over 700 socioeconomically diverse families. The pilot project will employ a collaborative, “human- centered design” approach to create a visually appealing packet of aggregate study results in Spanish and English. Direct collaboration with P3EGS participants and an artistic team specializing in “graphic medicine” will take place throughout the design process. Findings from this study will shed light on the acceptability and relevance of sharing multi-method genomics research results with participants, including demographics data, descriptive statistics, and ethnographic findings.
This project will be led by Sara Ackerman, PhD, MPH in the Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences. Responsibilities include:
Candidate must have:
Experience conducting patient interviews/qualitative analysis
Fluency in written and spoken Spanish
Prior experience in human-centered design
Experience with genomic medicine-related research
Start and ending date are flexible.
Location: San Francisco, CA or remote, depending on COVID-19
