Earn money by participating in this study about resilience

Guest post by Tali Kapadia, Ph.D. | Hello! We are management scholars interested in understanding how emotions motivate people to persevere through the ups and downs of long-term creative projects. We are inviting any postdocs, master’s or Ph.D. students working in research laboratories to participate in this research study.

This study will involve taking many short (two- to five-minute) surveys over a three-week period. Though the study period is long, the total time taking surveys will take no more than 10 minutes in any given day. This study has been approved by the institutional review board.

This is a great opportunity for you to contribute to this underresearched area, understand your own emotions and resilience at work, AND earn some extra money.

If you decide to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete an initial survey (20 to 30 minutes) and then as many short surveys (no more than five minutes) as you can, all of which will be compensated.

At the end of the study, for each full day (i.e. both morning and afternoon surveys) you complete, you will receive an additional bonus. 

The study will take place over a period of three work weeks (Monday to Friday). Short surveys will be deployed twice a day, morning and afternoon, for 15 days in total.

Component Time taken Compensation
Initial intake survey 20 to 30 minutes $10
Short daily surveys Each survey is less than 5 minutes $1 per survey
Each full day (both morning and afternoon surveys)   An additional $3 per day

Additionally, if you refer people within your network to participate in our study, you can earn $10 per person who signs up for the study. Just remind them to include your name and email when they sign up. 

TL;DR: Participate in less than 3 hours of surveys about your emotions at work and earn up to $100!   

If you’d like to participate in the study, please sign up using this link.

You also will be asked to install an app on your phone in order to take the short daily surveys.

If you have any questions about the study, please email Kopal Manglik at km3271@tc.columbia.edu. Thank you very much.
