This would be an ideal position for someone interested in ultimately pursuing graduate training in cognitive neuroscience, medicine, psychology, or bioengineering.
 +
 
 +
Major responsibilities include managing and expanding a pool of both younger adults (18-30 years) and older adults (60+ years) volunteers; carrying out experiments on human memory by means of high-density scalp EEG recordings; annotating vocal responses in memory tasks; assisting the research team in processing and analyzing these behavioral and electrophysiological data; supervising a team of undergraduate research assistants; and assisting in general lab administration (grants, progress reports, IRB protocols). This position requires an individual who possesses excellent interpersonal, organizational, and scientific skills. This individual must be able to work independently with limited oversight to maximize the amount of high-quality data collected.
 +
 
 +
=== Qualifications ===
 +
 
 +
* A Bachelor’s degree
 +
* 0 to 1 year of research experience relevant to the work being carried out in the computational memory lab, including experience working with research participants in the analysis of experimental data or equivalent combination of education and experience
