The research assistant's primary responsibility will be compiling and organizing secondary data sources, including but not limited to adult day centers, medical provider addresses, and Census data (e.g., socioeconomic status).

Research assistants are expected to commit about 5-10 hours/week, and work can be done remotely. Research assistants can receive units or transcript notation. A cover letter and curriculum vita should be submitted to Dr. Oanh Meyer at olmeyer@ucdavis.edu. Position to start immediately.
