Research assistant exploring brain-behavior relationships in cognition

Suggested Fields
Post Date

We are seeking multiple motivated student research assistants to help with studies in our Psychiatry/Neurobiology research lab starting this term (Spring 2023) through summer, with the possibility of continuing in Fall next year. The primary research project entails studying brain waves during animal behavior and cognitive tasks using in-vivo electrophysiology, histology and imaging. The research assistant’s responsibilities will be primarily using sophisticated software to categorize the animal’s behavior during electrophysiology recordings. There will be additional opportunities to get involved with histology and imaging as well as assisting with surgeries and related procedures. This is an ideal position for motivated students interested in learning about an active research environment prior to applying to graduate school. The opportunity for research credit will be offered to dedicated research assistants following one semester of volunteer work. Applicants must be able to commit to working at least 20 hours per week during the summer or 15 hours per week during the semester with a fixed schedule coordinated with their supervisor, and should have a GPA of 3.5 or higher. We provide outstanding mentorship and many of our undergraduate research assistants have secured admission in competitive PhD programs. Please email Grace Ross at and provide a cover letter, CV/resume, unofficial transcript, and availability for current semester and summer (if known).
