Lab Manager / Research Assistant Position (Updated Mar 2016)
A full-time research assistant / lab manager position will be available starting Summer 2016 in the Vision and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab of Dr. Julie Golomb at The Ohio State University. Research topics in the lab include neural representations of space and attention; visual stability across eye movements; and object-location binding. We use a variety of methodologies in the lab, including psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking, and advanced fMRI and EEG methods.
Responsibilities will include assisting with all aspects of research (designing/programming experiments, recruiting/running participants, analyzing behavioral, fMRI, and EEG 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 before applying to graduate school. OSU houses a vibrant research community and a 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 applicants should email a CV, names of references, and a brief statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Postdoctoral Position Available (Updated Aug 2015)
A postdoctoral position is available in the Vision and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab of Dr. Julie Golomb at the Ohio State University. Research topics include neural representations of space and attention; visual stability across eye movements; and object-location binding. We use a variety of methodologies in the lab, including psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking, and advanced fMRI and EEG methods.
We are seeking highly qualified individuals with a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science), strong quantitative and technical skills, and shared interests in the core research area.
