Psychoeducational Evaluator in Brain Research Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Gabrieli lab at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT has an opening for a Psychoeducational Evaluator. The Gabrieli lab aims to understand the neural basis of human thought, language, learning and education, emotion, and motivation. We investigate how brains develop and adapt across the lifespan and differ from individual to individual. We do so in order to help people with neurodevelopmental, neuropsychiatric, or environmental challenges to lead happy and productive lives.

The main responsibilities of the Psychoeducational Evaluator are to administer and score standardized cognitive and language assessments in children, adolescents, and adults; collaborate with clinical and basic science investigators to organize and implement human subjects research protocols; and assist with efforts to identify and recruit participants with language- and reading-based learning impairments. This position additionally offers an opportunity to assist with the collection of clinical and basic science data, including human neuroimaging (MRI, EEG, MEG) and behavior.
Applicants should have experience working with children, although it may be in a variety of contexts (research, clinical, education, etc). This position is ideal for individuals interested in pursuing graduate work in a variety of clinical or research fields, and/or those interested in the intersection of research and education.
