The Computational Memory Lab is currently seeking applications for the following positions:
Research Assistant (Undergraduate Work-Study)
The Computational Memory Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking to recruit a part-time Undergraduate Research Assistant to assist with federally funded studies of human memory processes and how these processes change across the adult lifespan. The project is aimed at using computational models to interpret behavioral and neural data both on healthy memory function in young adults and age-related impairments in memory performance. The successful candidate will join a team of research scientists studying the ways in which the brain stores and retrieves verbal and spatial memories and how these processes are affected by aging.
Major responsibilities include carrying out experiments on human memory by means of high-density scalp EEG recordings and annotating vocal responses in memory tasks. This position requires an individual who possesses excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. This would be an ideal position for a student interested in cognitive neuroscience, medicine, psychology, or bioengineering.
