The Department of Psychology (https://psychology.gmu.edu/) is one of the largest departments at George Mason. We have a doctoral program in five areas, including clinical psychology.

The employee will coordinate and track meetings of the research team and community partnership team, assist in preparation of reports, assist in developing training materials and preparing those materials for distribution, coordinate approximately six virtual and in-person trainings per year, and assist with basic program evaluation and research-related tasks (e.g., preparation and administration of surveys, preparation of IRB materials). The employee will also be a primary liaison between researchers, trainers, and community providers. The position reports to the Principal Investigator for the consortium, Keith Renshaw.
Applicants must have the ability to work with Microsoft Office and other software, work and communicate effectively with multiple stakeholders, coordinate schedules and plan events, learn and comply with regulatory processes, and handle basic project budgeting.

I need someone to help with my grandmother on Wednesdays from 9am-2pm, and some Fridays from 10am-6pm. She has no major medical issues, other than very mild dementia. The person would just need to make sure she eats breakfast, and get her coffee every now and then. Also, she will get confused sometimes and forget her favorite tv station, so she might need help with the television. Other than that, she doesn't need much help and the person could do homework or watch tv. The only requirement is that they have to be comfortable with dogs, we have three of them.
If interested, I can be contacted at 571-359-3127 (call or text is fine)
