A research assistant / lab manager position will be available starting
Fall 2012 in the vision and cognitive neuroscience laboratory of Dr.
Julie Golomb in the Department of Psychology at the Ohio State
University. Research in the lab sits at the intersection of
perception, attention, working memory, and object recognition, with an
emphasis on visual stability across eye movements. We use a variety of
methodologies, primarily psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking,
and basic and advanced (multivariate) fMRI techniques.
Responsibilities will include assisting with all aspects of research
(designing/programming experiments, recruiting/running participants,
analyzing behavioral and fMRI data), as well as supervising
undergraduate students in the lab and overseeing day-to-day lab
operations. This is an ideal position for someone for someone who
would like to obtain additional research experience in cognitive
neuroscience/psychology before applying to graduate school. OSU houses
a vibrant research community and a new state-of-the-art neuroimaging
facility located within the Psychology building.
Qualifications: BA/BS in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science,
Engineering, Math, or other related field. Strong technical and
computer skills are required, including experience with one or more
programming languages (preferably Matlab or Python). Strong
organizational and communication skills are also essential. The
position requires a commitment of two years.
Interested parties should email a CV, names of references, and a brief
statement of interest to Julie Golomb: jgolomb at mit.edu
