The Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation, a Harvard-affiliated center within the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is looking for a Research Assistant. They use a combination of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), functional MRI, Electroencephalography (EEG) and cognitive tasks to explore neuroplasty mechanisms and to diagnose and treat neurological and psychiatric illnesses. The lab is actively involved in researching cognitive processes in healthy individuals as well as in a number of patient populations, including: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Ataxia, Schizophrenia, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more. In addition to working closely with principal investigators on their projects, a successful candidate will have an opportunity to develop and pursue their own research interests.
They are particularly interested in those with a psychology or cognitive neuroscience background although majoring in either of these is not a prerequisite. Any experience in statistical analysis, fMRI analysis, EEG, TMS or Matlab is an asset but not required. The ideal candidate would be willing to accept the position for 2 years, though a shorter time frame may be an option. All interested applicants should send a CV/Resume; a brief statement of interests and future plans; and arrange for a reference to be sent via e-mail or letter to:
