Seeking graduate and undergraduate students for Paid, Short-term Student Advisory Board to provide study design input to ensure comfort and fit for underrepresented populations
Our research team at Johns Hopkins University is examining Hot Spot Mapping (HSM) and other environmentally-based approaches for sexual assault prevention. In the study design phase, we are seeking undergraduate and graduate student perspectives on study tools and processes from underrepresented communities that are disproportionately affected by sexual violence.
We are recruiting students to form two Student Advisory Boards (SABs):
• one focused on students identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ)
• one focused on African American (AA) students.
• Students who identify as AA and LGBTQ are welcome to apply to both SABs, although each student will be placed in one SAB only.
The scope of the SAB includes review of measures and study protocol/processes. This is entirely an advisory role -- discussion will not include personal experiences, but rather input on possible measures, and strategies to ensure participant comfort and safety through the process. Each SAB will have 6-8 members from different college campuses across the country. SABs will meet virtually, approximately 8 times between December 2021 and September 2022. These students will provide input and recommendations while gaining exposure to the research process, with the opportunity to engage with student leaders from other colleges, and learn from professionals in sexual violence prevention. SAB members will receive a $500 honorarium.
If you are interested, please send an email to Patricia Mahoney, at email@example.com. Please include the following:
1. Your name, institution, and undergraduate area of study
2. Which SAB you are interested in joining
3. Why you think you would be a good candidate for the SAB (500 words or less for this portion)
4. Title the email “SAB application”
5. You may also attach a CV or resume, but that is not required
Please send all letters of interest by November 30, 2021.
