Open Position

The TSET Health Promotion Research Center of the NCI Designated Stephenson Cancer Center (SCC) at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) is seeking applications for 2-3 research technicians.

 

The research technicians will work with Dr. Michael Businelle on multiple ongoing nationally funded research studies that utilize smartphones and sensors (e.g., mobile carbon monoxide monitor, GPS) to collect data and automatically intervene to reduce unhealthy behaviors (e.g., smoking, at-risk drinking) and stress/depression in real-time (see recent studies at https://www.businellelab.com/). Dr. Businelle is the Co-director of the HPRC and Director of the SCC mHealth Shared Resource. View information about the HPRC here: https://www.healthpromotionresearch.org.

 

Research technicians will primarily enroll and follow-up with participants for studies that test automated smartphone based Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions (JITAI) using our InsightTM mHealth Platform. InsightTM enables researchers to rapidly create smartphone-based research studies that may include ecological momentary assessments and sensor data (i.e., activity monitor, mobile carbon monoxide monitor) to identify environmental, cognitive, affective, physiological, and behavioral antecedents of health risk behaviors and deliver context-specific adaptive interventions in real-time. Current/recent studies in the lab include JITAIs that address smoking (i.e., Smart-T2, Smart-T3, Phoenix, MASP, Smart-T Mental Health), alcohol use (i.e., Smart-T Alcohol), case management (i.e., Link2Care), anxiety/depression (i.e., Persist, EASE), and COVID-19 (i.e., Symptom Tracker).
