X-Lab Research Assistant – Genomic/Neuroimaging Data Analysis
The focus of our lab is two-fold:
1) We study genetic variants that confer neuropsychiatric risk and use this knowledge to improve psychiatric clinical care for individuals with severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia.
2) We investigate biological mechanisms of neuropsychiatric and mental health symptoms integrating multiple data types such as symptom data, genetic data and neuroimaging data to identify individuals with the highest risk for psychiatric and mental health disorders.
We are looking for two undergraduate research assistants to join our lab on the following projects:
1. Genomic data analysis. Responsibilities include processing and analyzing genomic data; coding experience in python is required and experience working in a Unix/Linux environment is preferable, but prior experience with genetic data analysis is not necessary as the candidate will receive training in this.
2. Neuroimaging (fMRI) data analysis. Responsibilities include processing and analyzing neuroimaging data; coding experience in MATLAB is required and experience working in a Unix/Linux environment is preferable, but prior experience with neuroimaging data is not necessary as the candidate will receive training in this.
Both work-study positions are for 10 hours/week through the spring semester. Research assistants will be trained to perform the data processing/analysis and will have the opportunity to contribute to and lead publications.
