PAID SUMMER JOBS WITH PENNENVIRONMENT!

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We've run campaigns for USPIRG, Environment America, the Human Rights Campaign, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and Fair Share Alliance.

This summer, we are running an office in Philadelphia, PA for PennEnvironment to close loopholes in the Clean Water Act.  Loopholes in the law leave 60% of our state's rivers and streams unprotected from pollution.  Currently, more than 20,000 miles of streams are listed as "impaired" meaning that they are so polluted that you can't swim in them or fish from them, and you definitely can't drink the water.  The US Senate will decide the fate of these waterways this summer, and we need to make sure Senator Bob Casey is on the right side of the issue.

This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making on average between $9-14/hour.

JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN OFFICE TODAY!
Fill out the form here to set up an interview and to hear more about the positions we have available.

Elwyn is in search of motivated psychology grads that are interested in gaining experience in the application of program management and/or direct care work with the Prader-Willi Syndrome population. The Prader-Willi Syndrome Program is looking for interested students - who are wanting to gain experience while they are going to school - and also need some financial support while doing so. Currently, we are looking for Direct Caregivers. Below is a description of this role. Work would be in shifts - from approximately 7a-3p, 3p-11p, and 11p-7a in the community of Media, PA and Marcus Hook, PA. Please pass along my information to anyone who might be interested to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). The individuals with Prader-WIlli Syndrome are quite complicated and will offer a great experience to those who may be interested.

The Prader-Willi Syndrome residential placement at Elwyn is a unique program that specializes in the treatment of individuals diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is the most common known genetic cause of life-threatening obesity in children. Although the cause is complex it results from an abnormality on the 15th chromosome. It occurs in males and females equally and in all races. Prevalence estimates have ranged from 1:8,000 to 1:25,000 with the most likely figure being 1:15,000.

PWS typically causes low muscle tone, short stature if not treated with growth hormone, incomplete sexual development, and a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes constant supervision necessary. Average IQ is 70, but even those with normal IQs almost all have learning issues. Social and motor deficits also exist. At birth the infant typically has low birth weight for gestation, hypotonia (weak muscles), and difficulty sucking due to the hypotonia which can lead to a diagnosis of failure to thrive. The second stage ("thriving too well"), has a typical onset between the ages of two and five, but can be later. The hyperphagia (extreme unsatisfied drive to consume food) lasts throughout the lifetime. Children with PWS have sweet and loving personalities, but this phase is also characterized by increased appetite, weight control issues, and motor development delays along with some behavior problems and unique medical issues.

The PWS residential program's goal is to provide intensive supervision and behavioral assessment and treatment services, offer integrated and targeted application of behavioral and pharmacological interventions as well as maintain food security and weight management plans. Individuals in the PWS residential program receive behavioral, psychiatric, developmental, social assessments, and interventions. Behavioral assessment and treatment strategies are derived from an applied behavior analysis (ABA) model. Caregivers practice implementation of the treatment plan in a variety of naturalistic settings under the supervision of a clinician to promote maintenance of treatment gains.

Direct Caregiver Position:
To Teach, counsel, supervise, and guide those served in the activities of daily living. Responsible for adhering to and documenting individual's program as directed by the Site Supervisor. Responsible for providing aggressive programming in the home and in the community. Responsible for adherence to standards, procedures, and schedules established by the Site Supervisors, in accordance with Elwyn's policy and Governmental Regulations.

About the Regional Math/Science Center

The FSU Regional Math/Science Center is a federally funded Department of Education Upward Bound program designed to help low-income, potential first generation college students, achieve their goals of attaining a college degree, specifically in the fields of math and science.  Participants in the program attend a six-week summer session on the campus of FSU, where they are engaged in a scientific research project.  The RMSC strives to develop exciting hands-on projects that are relevant to modern life.

While working on these projects the practical use of the scientific method is emphasized.  Students must develop testable hypotheses, help design the study, collect the data needed, analyze the data, draw conclusions based on the data collected and finally present their study in both oral and written form.  Students learn about peer review as they present their study progress each week to the other students in the program.  They also learn to use the computer for data analysis, for data processing their formal report, and for developing a power point presentation that is presented to a panel of scientists and an audience of parents, university and public officials.

We seek a Research Coordinator to work full-time on a longitudinal clinical research project. This work is conducted at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital in Fort Belvoir, VA. The research project, directed by Dr. Connie Duncan, involves assessment of brain structure and function in injured Service Members (with mild traumatic brain injury [TBI] or other injuries but no TBI). Subjects are followed over time to evaluate clinical outcome, with an emphasis on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as post-concussion symptoms, headache, emotional distress, and quality of life. Assessments include event-related brain potentials, neuroimaging, and neurocognitive and neurological tasks. Clinical interviews and self-report measures are also administered. The Research Coordinator is the primary point of contact for the study and will work with Dr. Duncan to execute all aspects of the investigation, including but not limited to:

- Subject recruitment and consent (establishing and maintaining contacts with clinical services, giving in-service presentations, developing and implementing plans to meet project goals, tracking patient flow, and recruiting and consent interviews)
- Tracking and managing the flow of subject scheduling and testing, scheduling as needed, and coordinating schedules with clinicians
- Subject testing, including clinical interviews, electrophysiological assessments, neurological and neurocognitive evaluations
- Maintaining patient records and databases, including data entry and data quality assurance
- Supervision of staff
- Administrative procedures, e.g., budgeting, purchasing, hiring
- Preparing amendments, submissions, and continuing reviews for IRBs
- Tracking and reporting on recruitment, study progress, and patient events to funding bodies of main clinical trial and affiliated sub-studies
- Maintaining contact with staff of other TBI studies and clinical providers

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, energetic, patient, well-organized, responsible, and detail-oriented. S/he will have a can-do attitude, be good at multitasking, and possess outstanding problem-solving skills. Exceptional interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with a range of people in a variety of capacities is a must. Requirements include an excellent academic record and research experience, ability to speak and write English well, a master’s or doctoral degree (or equivalent experience), a car and valid driver’s license, and U.S. Citizenship. We are also looking for demonstrated interpersonal, communication, and leadership skills, which are required to work successfully with Co-Investigators, multi-disciplinary TBI and PTSD evaluation and treatment teams, research assistants, and research subjects. Previous experience with subject recruiting, institutional review boards, funding agencies, and regulatory procedures, EEG/ERP recording, Microsoft Office, and statistical packages (e.g., SPSS) is highly desirable. Some weekend work and flexible scheduling may be needed. The start date is immediate. A competitive salary and benefits package is offered and will be commensurate with qualifications. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, résumé, three letters of recommendation, and transcript(s) by email to Dr. Connie C.
