*Full-time Lab Manager/Lab Tech Position Available*
The Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at Colgate University is
seeking applications for a full-time lab manager/lab tech for its
Perception, Action, and Language (PAL) Laboratory. The PAL lab is a common
space across the labs of Bruce C Hansen and Spencer D Kelly, and is focused
on VEP/ERP, high-definition tDCS, and eye-tracking methodology. Research
conducted in the lab is generally focused on two major themes: 1) How early
low-level visual signals provide distinctive codes for different visual
environments, and how such codes contribute to the formation of rapid
perceptual inference, and 2) how bodily actions influence language
production and comprehension during communication and learning.
This is a great position for a recent college graduate who would like to
gain further experience in an intensive research setting before applying to
graduate school. A two-year commitment is highly preferred. The position
is not appropriate for those with advanced degrees.
The position would ideally start on September 1, 2018. Salary is capped at
$27,300 USD per year. An overview of the fringe benefits for this position
can be found here:
Responsibilities include assisting with all aspects of EEG/High-definition
tDCS/eye-tracking experiments. Specific duties include (but are not limited
to): coordinating and executing multiple experiments, assisting with
experimental set-up (including basic experiment programming), assisting the
PIs and their thesis students with sensor net preparation, application, and
disinfecting, stimulus creation, assisting with the training of new
undergraduate RAs, data processing, data analysis, data management, and

This position requires a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. A
major in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or related field is
