We are encouraging applications for a Professional Research Assistant position(s) in the RADD Lab to support a cluster of new studies that investigate core neurocognitive markers that predict resilience in teens and college students. The position will primarily be centered on research recruitment, acquiring behavioral and neuroimaging data, and database management. We may hire more than one employee to continue the research efforts of the lab.
If you are interested in applying to work with us as a graduate student, email our lab and tell us a little bit about yourself and your interests! Please note that Dr. Kaiser may or may not be taking students in a given application cycle.
Apply as an Undergraduate Student
Our team includes undergraduate students with a strong background in psychology or neuroscience. Undergraduate students may join the lab as volunteers to gaining experience in a clinical research environment; activities include conducting research sessions, helping to run neuroimaging scans, database management, performing literature reviews, and attending lab meetings. Please know that undergraduate members of the team are expected to commit to at least ten hours per week for at least two academic semesters; this commitment makes it possible to complete the complex training requirements of a clinical neurocognitive research lab.
If you are interested in applying to work with us as an undergraduate student, email our lab with (1) your resume, and (2) a cover letter describing your training goals and interests.
