Full Time Opportunities

Research Assistants

We are seeking two research assistants for NIH-funded projects supervised by Drs. Anne Berry and Jenny Crawford.

A behavioral project, led by Dr. Crawford, examines the role of daily life activities and experiences on cognitive function and wellbeing across the adult life span, using a multi-method approach, that includes experience sampling, passive sensing (e.g., GPS, Oura rings), and behavioral measures.

A neuroimaging project, led by Dr. Berry, uses MRI & PET imaging techniques to obtain measures of structural integrity and activity of neuromodulators in the brain, and correlates these measures to behavioral outcomes.

These positions will introduce the research assistants to a wide array of theories and methods in cognitive aging, neuroscience, and Alzheimer’s disease research, providing a unique opportunity to develop research skills and engage in professional development with a large collaborative team. The positions would be a good fit for individuals aiming to gain intensive research skills prior to graduate school. We are looking for hard-working, detail-oriented, and highly motivated bachelors-level researchers with experience in data collection. The start date is negotiable in late spring/early summer 2024.
