The Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit (BPRU) at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine located on the Bayview campus is seeking a part time intern to assist with a project related to the effects of Psilocybin on various populations including religious professionals, people with major depression, and long-term meditators.
Psilocybin is the active compound in psychedelic mushrooms. Research conducted by our lab, and other labs has demonstrated positive effects in cancer patients, depressed individuals, and in individuals seeking a spiritual practice. We urge applicants to review some of our papers and past research studies.
The intern assigned to our project would be assisting with data management, psilocybin session preparation, and phone screening to help identify suitable candidates for our current projects.
An ideal candidate would have experience with Excel and Microsoft office, with preference to individuals with data management skills. We are looking for an upperclassman who could devote around 20 hours a week. The position is volunteer position, however the BPRU has historically offered paid positions to volunteers who do a satisfactory job and stay in their position for a semester or longer.
