Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab at the University of Illinois is seeking to hire a project coordinator

The Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab at the University of Illinois is seeking to hire a project coordinator to assist with an NIH funded study examining Social Contexts and Adolescents’ NeuroDevelopment (Project SCAND).

 

Our lab examines how social contexts, such as the family and peers, influence adolescent decision making. We use diverse methodological tools, including daily experience sampling, diurnal cortisol, and fMRI. Responsibilities will include overseeing all aspects of the research process, including participant recruitment, data collection, and data management. The project coordinator will also be responsible for training and overseeing undergraduate research assistants. This position is ideal for a recent college graduate interested in pursuing a PhD in a related field. 

 

Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills, flexible and independent thinking are a must.  Strong quantitative skills (stats, programming) and experience with fMRI are a bonus.  B.S. or B.A. with background in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field is required. 

 

Preferred start date is immediately. 

 

Interested applicants should send a CV/resume, cover letter, and arrange to have 2-3 letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Eva Telzer at ehtelzer@illinois.edu. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
