Screening Field Interviewer – admin / office

Westat is currently seeking motivated and detail-oriented individuals to be Screening Field Interviewers on the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study. PATH collects information on tobacco use attitudes about tobacco use and examines the short- and long-term health effects of such use.

Screening Field Interviewers will locate sampled addresses and screen adults and youth in person for a longitudinal study. Interviewers regularly receive and transmit data via the internet and report progress and costs to their supervisor.

Protecting the health and safety of our employees and survey participants is a top priority for Westat. Based on recommendations from the CDC and other public health authorities, we require staff to protect and monitor their health while working on their assignment. The use of personal protective equipment, regular testing for COVID-19, or other screening activities is required. As a Federal Government contractor, Westat will require staff to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 upon hire, and to follow all safety protocols, subject to approved accommodations under applicable law.
