CLINICAL RESEARCH SPECIALIST, SR
Ctr for Brain Imaging & Analysis

Research in this lab focuses primarily on the cognitive neuroscience of aging: the investigation of age-related changes in perception, attention, and memory, using both behavioral measures and neuroimaging techniques, primarily structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The behavioral measures have focused on reaction time, with the goal of distinguishing age-related changes in specific cognitive abilities from more general effects arising from a slowing in elementary perceptual processes.
The cognitive abilities of interest include selective attention as measured in visual search tasks, semantic and episodic memory retrieval, and executive control processes.
Candidates who enjoy interacting with research participants, working in an academic research environment, and have future career goals involving neuroscience research are encouraged to apply.
Responsibilities of the research assistant will include working under the direction of the PI on recruitment and enrollment of patients into research studies, administering research procedures suchas MRI scans, and administering behavioral studies.
Other research related activities will include working under the direction of the PI to develop protocols for behavioral testing, collecting and recording research data, maintaining data integrity, assisting in data analysis with basic statistical methods, and assisting in developing experimental procedures.
The candidate should be able to work under the direction of the PI to search scientific literature, create figures and tables from experimental data for manuscripts and grants.
Applicants should have a B.A. or B.S. in neuroscience, biology, psychology, or other related scientific fields.
Prior research experience in a clinical setting with clinical patients is desirable but not essential.
Strong interpersonal skills, strong written and oral communication,and teamwork are required.
Technical skills including basic statistical knowledge, use of basic computer applications and programming, and knowledge of cognitive psychology and neuroscience are a plus.
Candidates should be available for a one year commitment.
