On behalf of Research Triangle Institute, we are currently seeking Part-Time Field Interviewers for a government sponsored research study.
The Public Education Campaign on Teen Tobacco (ExPECTT) - Cohort 2 study sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (FDA-CTP) is conducting the ExPECTT2 study to measure awareness of and exposure to FDA’s Real Cost campaign among youth ages 11 - 16 and the campaign’s impact on outcome variables of interest. Data will be collected in 100 primary areas across the United States. The evaluation will consist of a self-administered interview with youth who have previously participated in the study, either online or in-person with a field interviewer. Youth will be invited to complete two additional follow-up interviews in future years. Data from this evaluation will be used to gauge campaign awareness and examine the statistical relationships between exposure to the campaign and the outcome variables of interest among youth.
This position is part time, offering roughly 25 hours / week. Data collection is scheduled to last no longer than 12 weeks, but this time-frame will vary greatly depending on location and project needs. Fieldwork will begin at the beginning of May 2019.
