Research Assistant/Lab Manager (full-time) in Neuroscience at Boston University

Tracking Code2538 Job Description

We are seeking a highly motivated and organized candidate to work as a research technician and lab manager in the Lewis Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, an interdisciplinary and collaborative lab focused on advanced brain imaging techniques and the neuroscience of sleep. The position will be ideal for someone seeking to develop their research skills before moving on to graduate or medical school. The role will involve conducting neuroimaging and EEG studies, managing clinical research (e.g. participant recruitment and screening), programming experiments, assisting with data analysis (e.g. image processing), managing clinical trials documentation, and managing lab infrastructure and organization. This position is expected to be a 2-year commitment, and we aim to support the long-term career goals of the person in this role; our past RAs have presented research work at conferences and gone on to medical and graduate schools. The target start date is around June-July 2021.

Required Skills
  • Candidates should have enthusiasm for neuroscience and computational research
  • A bachelor's degree in a related field (e.g. neuroscience, psychology, engineering, computer science) is required, and a quantitative or computational background is helpful for this role (programming experience in Matlab or Python is a plus)
  • Good interpersonal skills and comfort working with human participants are needed
  • Organizational skills, motivation, and attention to detail will be essential to the position. Because some of our studies are on the neuroscience of sleep, occasionally some experiments take place at night - candidates should be open to a schedule that will not always conform to typical office hours.

How to apply: Please email C.V., transcripts (unofficial is fine), cover letter, and names of three references to Laura Lewis, [email protected]
