Laboratory of Dr. Ingrid Olson, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, 
University of Pennsylvania

Applications are invited for a 2-year Research Assistantship at the 
University of Pennsylvania's Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. Our 
center is a lively place to work with many other investigators and a 
collaborative spirit. Salary range is $25,000+ and benefits include 
health and dental. Our lab uses behavioral, patient, fMRI,  and TMS 
techniques to study visual cognition. More information about our 
research can be found at http://ccn.upenn.edu/~iolson/.

The RA will be in charge of trouble-shooting any computer-related 
problems. S/he is also expected to write experiments in Eprime, 
Matlab, or C++ and analyze fMRI data using SPM. As such, strong 
computer skills are of critical importance. Other responsibilities 
will include: recruiting, scheduling, and testing subjects, 
statistical analysis and figure design using Photoshop and 
Illustrator. Hours need to be flexible because some testing of 
subjects may take place after 5 p.m. The ideal candidate will have a 
bachelor's degree in any subject, people skills, organizational 
skills, strong computer skills, and enough technical confidence to 
learn how to collect TMS and fMRI data.

This position will start this summer (2007). Please send your 
resume/CV that includes a detailed description of computer, 
technical, and statistical skills, and the names of 3 references to 
iolson at psych.upenn.edu.

The University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Employment 
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
