Full-Time Research Assistant at the Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab (SSNL)

February 08, 2024

The Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab (PI: Jamil Zaki) invites applications for a full-time RA position to begin in Summer of 2024.

This position is ideal for highly motivated college graduates considering graduate school in psychology or cognitive neuroscience. Research assistants in our group work closely with Prof. Zaki, as well as postdocs and graduate students, on collaborative projects, and gain deep and varied research experience.

Our lab is fascinated by how people connect with each other. We study empathy, prosocial behavior, emotion regulation, and other related phenomena, using a range of methods including brain imaging, social network analysis, and behavioral experiments. Please see ssnl.stanford.edu/research for more on our work, and our lab manual to learn more about our culture.

These individuals will contribute to a large, collaborative project combining social network analysis with psychological and brain-based measures of well-being and emotion (the Stanford Communities Project). They will also contribute to lab infrastructure and organization, as well as lab culture. As such, exceptional organizational and interpersonal skills are required. Previous experiences conducting independent research, neuroimaging, social network analysis, and programming in R and / or Python are ideal, though not required.

To apply for the position, please complete the SSNL’s materials, found here.

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with priority given to submissions received before March 8th, 2024.
