The Hartley Lab (PI: Catherine Hartley) in the Department of Psychology at New York University is currently seeking a full-time Junior Laboratory Associate to work on studies examining learning, memory, and decision-making across development.
The expected start date for the position is Summer 2023. This is an excellent opportunity to gain research experience in preparation for a graduate career. Application review will take place on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
The Junior Laboratory Associate’s primary responsibilities include:
– Participant recruitment and testing (behavioral, psychophysiological, and brain imaging studies). Because we do developmental work, this will involve interfacing with parents and children and may require occasional flexibility in schedule (working evenings/weekends)
– Data management and analysis
– Experimental paradigm development
– Lab administration including managing IRB protocols, participant recruitment activities, and training other lab members
In compliance with NYC’s Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $38,000 – $45,000. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the specific grant funding and the terms of the research grant when extending an offer.
Previous research experience, a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science or other related fields, and excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills are required.
Additional highly desired qualifications include:
– Interest and/or experience in cognitive neuroscience research, particularly in developmental populations (children, adolescents)
– Strong computational, statistical, and technical skills (e.g. fluency with Matlab, Python, and/or R)
– Experience analyzing neuroimaging data (SPM, FSL, AFNI, or similar platforms)
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter that includes a brief description of your research interests and relevant experience, a CV, an undergraduate transcript (unofficial is fine), and contact information for two references (no need to submit letters). We encourage applications from members of groups underrepresented in science.
