Job description
This job involves conducting and/or supporting laboratory research, which may include routine or non-routine laboratory operations, data interpretation, development and performance of technical protocols and procedures, design of cognitive experiments, literature studies, preparation of scientific papers. The RA will be mainly focused on the development and analysis of online cognitive experiments (languages likely to be used:  Matlab, R, Python, Java, HTLM).

It also involves coordinating people involved in lab research (post-doc, graduate students and undergraduate research assistants), organizing lab meetings and invited speakers’ visits, and helping with other administrative or social needs of the lab.

Research and administrative duties will include but is not limited to organizing lab meetings and other occasional lab social events. Provide assistance with training undergraduate research assistants on laboratory tasks and techniques such as (but is not limited to) online experiments and data analyses.  Collaboratively write and/or edit IRB protocols, grants, and other scientific reports as needed. May contribute towards articles for publication in scientific journals or for presentations at conferences or symposiums. Consults with academic supervisors or professional researchers on the nature and objectives of the research project or instructional design goals.
