You may qualify to participate in a research study and work a temporary concession job.

Located near the 161st Street Station in the Bronx.

All staff working at the event will go through a security screening.

We are looking for healthy individuals between the ages of 21 and 60.

Prior food service experience is required.

Participants will earn $15 per hour for their time.

For more information, please call us at 646-895-1775.

All information provided is strictly confidential.

NEIRB #10-359.

What the hell is this?? A "research study" using food outside of the train station? A "special event" on the streets of New York? What kind of "special event" takes place confidentially and has to do with research on the unsuspecting public? Did I read that right? What the hell is the real truth behind this research study.. In the advertisement, former food services experience sought after, you are promissed to remain confidential, and a complete security screening will be done on you. Sound like much for a little street vending? There's something more to this. It's a "RESEARCH STUDY" using food. This is truly scary that this could be going through avenues of craigslist but it makes perfect sense. Nobody knows who anyone is..

Who lives in the Bronx and can check into this? It's going on right now I think..

Don't get me wrong it could be nothing but it sure sounds very strange!

So why is this possibly a bio-chem test?
You people are paranoid.
I'm an hour from the Bronx. I am gonna respond.
I'll do it. Maybe I will be lucky enough to poison paranoid people.

This happens all the time.

You get paid lots of money to 'test' new foods or drinks or whatever.

If you get really sick, that's ok, they have an ambulance ready to take you to the hospital.

If you need $ real bad and don't care about your life too much, it's a job right?

Where do you get biochem research from?

How about ringing the number to find out more details?

maybe the research is not anything to do with the food but could be something as simple as personal response i.e you buy a burger he gives you your change and then says something rude about your mother to see how the general public react, i did something similar to this when i was in college
