Dear P&BS Seniors,
I am a research assistant in the labs of Dr. Pearl Chiu, Dr. Brooks King-Casas, and Dr. Stephen LaConte at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (http://research.vtc.vt.edu) in Roanoke, Virginia. We are currently seeking a new full-time research assistant and would like to get the word out to undergraduates who are interested in such a position.
Projects in the labs combine methods from experimental and clinical psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics with functional neuroimaging (fMRI) to investigate decision-making in healthy and clinical populations (including adults with mood/anxiety/substance disorders, and at-risk youth). Training will be provided for all aspects of the job. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in graduate school in clinical or cognitive psychology/neuroscience.
I have attached a complete description of the job (“VTCRI-LabManager.pdf”), and here is the link for the posting on the Virginia Tech website: https://listings.jobs.vt.edu/postings/90697. Would it be possible to forward this information to the psychology and neuroscience undergraduate students at your institution? We’re seeking candidates that would be able to start as soon as possible, so if you have a list of recent graduates or students who will graduate in the middle of this year, that would be ideal.
