Apologies for cross-listing.

The Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences and the Neuroscience
Program at Colgate University are seeking applications for a full-time lab
manager/lab tech for its Brain Recording & Cognitive Science (BRCS)
Laboratory. The BRCS lab is a common space that hosts the labs of Douglas N
Johnson, Spencer D Kelly, and Bruce C Hansen, and is primarily focused on
the following methodologies: stationary and remote high-density EEG,
high-definition tDCS, eye-tracking, augmented and virtual reality, and
psychophysics. Research conducted in the lab is generally focused on the
following themes: 1) determinants and correlates of visual selective
attention; metacognition and the relationship between metacognition,
learning strategies, and learning outcomes, 2) how bodily actions influence
language production and comprehension during communication and learning, 3)
how early neural signals provide distinctive codes for different visual
environments, and how such codes contribute to (and inform) intelligent
behavior. Additionally, the BRCS lab is host to a number of
transdisciplinary projects with faculty within and outside of the
