fMRI Research Assistant Position Available

A full-time research assistant position is available in Dr. Russell
Epstein's laboratory in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at the
University of Pennsylvania.  Our laboratory uses fMRI to investigate
the neural systems underlying visual scene recognition, spatial
cognition, and spatial memory.  Duties will include assisting with the
design and preparation of experiments, recruiting subjects, analyzing
fMRI data, supervising undergraduates in the lab, and coordinating lab
activities.  A BA/BS in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience or
other related scientific field required, as are strong computer
skills, prior research experience, and an ability to solve technical
problems independently.  This would be an excellent position for a
graduating senior who wishes to hone their research skills before
continuing on to postgraduate study.  A 2-year commitment with an
early summer start date is preferred.  The Center for Cognitive
Neuroscience is a lively, collaborative, supportive intellectual
environment.  Penn offers excellent employee benefits.  For more
