The Preston Lab ( is recruiting a full time Lab Coordinator with a start date in Spring/Summer 2016. The lab uses behavioral and brain imaging techniques to explore how we form new memories, how we remember past events, and how our memory for the past influences what we learn in the present. We are particularly interested in how our ability to effectively remember and reason about experience develops from the time we are children, and how this development relates to brain maturation.

The primary responsibilities will be management of behavioral and neuroimaging studies of memory. You will play a major role in experiment development and implementation and receive extensive training in advanced neuroimaging methods.  Daily responsibilities include:

Recruitment of child, adolescent, and adult participants
Behavioral and brain imaging data collection
Data processing and statistical analyses
Training of undergraduate students
General administration of lab finances and IRB protocols


BA/BS in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science or a related field
