The Laboratory of Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience at Zucker Hillside Hospital is looking for volunteer research assistants for the 2013-14 academic year. Our current research program is focused on neurodevelopment in both healthy controls and individuals with psychotic and mood disorders. We use neuropsychological tests, neuroimaging, and clinical evaluations to understand how cognition and decision making deficits change during adolescence. Volunteers would participate in subject recruitment, data entry, data organization, administrative tasks, and depending on their level of comfort with computers potentially with processing of MRI data. This is a great opportunity to learn about all the phases of the research project from start to finish- from bringing in the subjects, to testing them, to entering and analyzing their data. The ideal volunteer will be organized, motivated, and interested in clinical psychology or neuroscience. We would prefer someone who is open to joining our team for more than one semester, as that will provide the most opportunities for getting engaged in more in-depth aspects of the research.
If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Dr. Katherine Karlsgodt at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include a recent resume (or CV) and information about your availability.
