The Hartley Lab (PI: Catherine Hartley) in the Department of Psychology at New York University is currently seeking a full-time Junior Lab Associate to work on behavioral and neuroimaging studies examining learning, memory, and decision-making across development.
The expected start date for the position is Summer 2021 (ideally in May or June). This is an excellent opportunity to gain research experience in preparation for a graduate career. Application review will take place on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
The Junior Lab Associate’s primary responsibilities include: – Participant recruitment and testing (behavioral, psychophysiological, and brain imaging studies). Because we do developmental work, this will involve interfacing with parents and children and require occasional flexibility in schedule (working evenings/weekends) – Data management and analysis – Experimental paradigm development – Lab administration including managing IRB protocols, participant recruitment activities, and training other lab members
Previous research experience, a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science or other related fields, and excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills are required.
Additional highly desired qualifications include: – Interest and/or experience in cognitive neuroscience research, particularly in developmental populations (children, adolescents) – Strong computational, statistical, and technical skills (e.g. fluency with Matlab, Python, and/or R) – Experience analyzing neuroimaging data (SPM, FSL, AFNI, or similar platforms)
Interested applicants should submit a CV, an undergraduate transcript (unofficial is fine), contact information for two references (letters will be requested if needed), and a brief description of your research interests and relevant experience. We encourage applications from members of groups underrepresented in science.
