We are currently seeking motivated, organized, detail-oriented individuals to work in the Queens County area to collect data for an important study for the U.S. Public Health Service. Successful applicants will be trained to use a laptop computer to screen household members and collect information about alcohol use and disorders and related physical and mental health conditions. Interviewers will also obtain a saliva sample using a collection kit.

Candidates must:
  • Be fluent in both written and spoken English and one of the following languages: Mandarin or Cantonese;
  • Have strong communication skills and previous interviewing or public contact experience;
  • Have the ability to locate sampled addresses by using maps and other sources;
  • Be able to lift and carry 15 pounds, walk up to two blocks, and climb stairs while carrying equipment with or without a reasonable accommodation;
  • Have a broadband Internet connection and a landline telephone;
  • Be willing to work at least 20 - 25 hours per week, mostly evenings and weekends with some daytime hours;
  • Have a valid (current) driver’s license that is not under suspension and regular access to an insured, reliable vehicle; and
  • Attend a paid out-of-town training session to be held in early January 2013.
Any offer of employment will be contingent upon receipt of acceptable results from a background screening based on the specific position which will include, at a minimum, criminal records history.
This is a part-time nonexempt position with limited benefits. Pay rates are contingent upon geographic location and level of experience. Working on this study can be a fascinating, rewarding experience. If you are a reliable self-starter and have a minimum high school diploma or GED, this position may be right for you.
