We wish to recruit a research assistant to a study funded to investigate the cognition and wellbeing of young adult twin pairs (21-23 years old) with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

They should be enthusiastic about encouraging young adults from the Twin Early Development Study to take part in the study, via recruitment by phone/email/text and follow-ups. They should also be willing to undertake extensive EEG data collection across the UK when required, e.g. travelling frequently as part of the role (once or twice a week).

A good work ethics, ability to work as part of a team, and commitment to the project finishing on time are essential.
