Research Assistant

The Computational Cognitive Neuroscience & Psychiatry Lab is hiring a
full-time postbac research assistant to start Summer/Fall 2019. This
position requires:

   - Completion of a BA/BS degree.
   - A strong programming background.
   - Some familiarity with or the ability to quickly learn the basics of
   Matlab and Python.
   - A strong interest in learning more about experimental and
   computational approaches to cognitive neuroscience and psychiatry.

There are also several additional characteristics that are preferred, but
are by no means required – we’re in an interdisciplinary field, and no one
knows everything. However, you should have a strong interest in filling in
gaps in your knowledge as the need arises.

   - Some experience with R, LaTeX, and version control.
   - Some experience with FSL or another neuroimaging analysis package.
   - Some exposure to experimental and/or mathematical/computational
   approaches to psychology/cognitive neuroscience/psychiatry.

*The ideal candidate is someone with some exposure to programming and/or
computer science who is interested in learning more about computational
approaches to psychology/cognitive neuroscience/psychiatry before applying
to graduate school.* Primary responsibilities include programming
computer-based experiments and recruiting and running participants.
Administrative tasks will include helping prepare grant applications and
publications for submission, as well as performing whatever other
activities are necessary to keep the lab running smoothly. You will also
have the opportunity to be more directly involved in a research project and
data analysis, and learn how to ask and answer questions in our field.
