The Motivation, Affect, & Cognition Lab and Social Detection Lab at the University of Denver are seeking a new lab manager/research assistant for Fall 2019!
This position will be split evenly between the labs of Dr. Kimberly Chiew (Motivation, Affect, & Cognition Lab) and Dr. Paige Lloyd (Social Detection Lab). The main purpose of this position is to provide research and logistical support to both labs and assist at a high level in ongoing research projects. This will include collecting and analyzing data using behavioral, physiological, and fMRI techniques, managing datasets, and recruiting and screening study participants. This is a full-time position that comes with DU’s full benefits package. The schedule requires daytime hours and some evening/weekend availability, but some flexibility in work hours may be available.
This is a great position for individuals seeking to gain research experience in affective science (particularly as it intersects with social perception and cognitive neuroscience). Candidates will be required to hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology, neuroscience, biology, or a related field and have familiarity with computer systems (both Mac and PC). The ideal candidate will have any/all of the following: statistical knowledge (related to managing data, performing basic statistical analyses, and understanding more advanced statistical models), experience collecting, analyzing, and managing fMRI or physiological data, programming experience (especially R, MATLAB, and/or Python), and strong interpersonal skills and a desire to work collaboratively with others.
The University of Denver’s vision is to be a great private university dedicated to the public good. DU values inclusive excellence, recognizing that its success is dependent on how well it values, engages and includes the rich diversity of constituents (to learn more, please visit http://www.du.edu/cme/ie_du.html). We particularly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply for this position.
