Research Assistant at Boston Children’s Hospital in Fetal/Neonatal Neuroimaging

The Gaab Lab in collaboration with the Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging and Developmental Science Center at Boston Children’s Hospital is looking for a Research Assistant to assist with all study phases of a NICHD funded longitudinal project which assesses functional and structural brain development from infancy to early elementary school age. This includes subject recruitment for pediatric research studies which will include close interaction with nurseries, child care centers and elementary schools in the Boston area, scheduling of pediatric research subjects, database maintenance, implementation and maintenance of analysis software; pediatric testing (including MRI/fMRI scanning of young children and infants) and data analyses (psychometrics, psychophysics and structural/functional magnetic imaging), stimuli design and administrative work (e.g., preparation of internal review board proposals). These positions are ideal for anyone considering future graduate study in cognitive (developmental) neuroscience, developmental psychology, computer science, cognitive science or neuroscience. Bachelor’s Degree in computer science, psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, math, or related field required. Comfort with a heterogeneous computing environment (Linux/Unix, Mac, and Windows) as well as some programming experience preferred; knowledge of psychological experiment software (E Prime, Presentation, etc.) and/or fMRI analyses software helpful. Prior experience with infants and children would be very helpful. Demonstrable pre-existing interest in developmental psychology/ cognitive neuroscience desired; knowledge of neuroanatomy, statistics or machine learning helpful. Must be self-motivated and able to work in a fast-paced, changing environment and must like working with infants, children and families. Start date ASAP. Please first apply to Nadine.gaab@childrens.harvard.edu with a cover letter and CV.
