Full-Time RA Position at WUSTL

Are you a recent or soon-to-be graduate looking for a full-time research position?  Do you have interests and experience in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging research?

The Cognitive Control & Psychopathology Lab (on WUSTL Danforth Campus; ccpweb.wustl.edu) is seeking a motivated, ambitious, and highly responsible research associate to assist on with neuroimaging data collection and analysis on a large-scale project that follows from the Human Connectome Project (www.humanconnectome.org), in investigating the neural basis of cognitive individual differences and the effects of mindfulness training on these. 

Job duties will involve interacting with human participants (so excellent social and communication skills are a must), administration of multi-session neuroimaging protocols and cognitive assessments, along with data management and preprocessing.  Additional managerial duties include recruitment, scheduling and coordination (so excellent organizational skills are also required).  

The ideal candidate will have an undergraduate degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience or a related field, along with relevant coursework and prior research experience.   Additional desirable qualifications include prior neuroimaging experience, programming and statistical skills, such as familiarity with neuroimaging and statistical software (MATLAB, R, AFNI, SPM). 

The position is available immediately. The official HR posting will be available soon.  Until then interested applicants should send email to Todd Braver (tbraver@wustl.edu)
