  • The research assistant will maintain regular contact with the participants throughout the duration of this project.
  • The assistant’s duties include sending text reminders to facilitate digital data collection from participants, organising incoming data and serving as points of connection between participants and investigators.

  • There will be interviews conducted with each participant which will be scheduled and transcribed by the assistant. Other duties include coding of data and surveying the literature. After the  data collection, the research assistant will assist the investigators in data analysis and in publication work.
