Postgraduate Associate – Turk-Browne Lab
The Turk Browne lab at Yale University is currently recruiting highly motivated individuals to join our research team. Our lab is composed of scientists from a range of academic backgrounds including psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, data science, computer science, and engineering. We study a range of topics in cognitive neuroscience, including perception and attention, learning and memory, and how these abilities arise during development. We provide access to cutting-edge training and facilities for brain imaging, behavioral testing, intracranial recording and stimulation, and computational modeling. We aim to create a supportive environment for innovative and rigorous research as well as professional growth and development.
The lab is currently seeking a full-time postgraduate associate. This role is designed for a recent college graduate who seeks additional research experience before applying to graduate or professional school. The successful candidate will receive exposure to all aspects of our research process, including: project management, subject recruiting, IRB submissions, experimental design, data collection, statistical analysis, team collaboration, grant and paper writing, and presentations. The position is intended to last two years, with an initial appointment of one year renewable upon satisfactory progress. A bachelor’s degree and/or research experience in a relevant field is required, and proficiency with statistics and programming is preferred. We are eager to recruit and welcome candidates who would add to the diversity of the lab.
Interested and qualified candidates should send a cover letter, resume/CV, transcript, and contact information for 2-3 references to email@example.com. Review of candidates will begin on a rolling basis and last until the position is filled.
