Thank you for reading and for your interest in volunteering with our group.
This work will involve working with staff and students so you will need a good command of English to participate. We also prefer people who could meet in person, but only 25% of the time. We could use zoom on other occasions.
For us to be able to decide on your goodness of fit with our projects, we need to know about your
background, skills and your availability.
Please do not submit a volunteer request without this information.
For example, do you have expertise in doing data analyses with any of these methods:
GLM, SEM, PROCESS, multi-level modeling using SPSS ?
These are the only programs in which we need help.
Depending on your involvement, we will gladly include you as an author on articles that we believe will make important contributions in the fields of stress, health, and/or aging.
Also, depending on our success, this could lead to a paid position.
Please send your background information (e.g. degrees, experience, etc.).
We are also interested in the amount of time you could spend working with us.
We would like someone in the Seattle area as we anticipate face-to-face meetings in the near future.
Some of our analyses will include relating immune, cardiometabolic and stress to each other, so they will be relevant to COVID-19.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

To advance research on stress and coping.
Our research is at the interface between stress, psychosocial distress, risky behaviors, physiology, cognition and disease/illness. We have examined many types of stressors. These include work (Medical School, Air Traffic Controllers, Counselors), Family (Caregiving, Interpersonal Violence), Health (Cancer, Coronary Disease, Hypertension, Gum Disease, Psychiatric Disorders), and Finances.
We have developed models that are good predictors of physiological, physical, psychological and cognitive outcomes. We have examined physiological measures (inflammation, metabolic, cardiovascular and immune function) in addition to personality, cognition, and risky behaviors.
We have developed psychological measures that have been translated into many languages to examine the stressors noted above. These measures have been used in large clinical trials, primary care, numerous research projects and have also been featured on national television.
