Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab

The Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab is seeking to hire a project coordinator to assist with an NIH funded study examining social contexts and adolescents’ neurodevelopment. 

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 and strong quantitative skills are required.  The applicant must have a B.S. or B.A. with background in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field. 

 

The DSNLab is moving to the Psychology and Neuroscience Department at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill this summer.

To apply, please send a cover letter detailing your interests, your CV, and the contact information of 3 individuals who could be asked for a recommendation to Dr. Eva Telzer ehtelzer@illinois.edu. The position will have a start date in August 2016.
