Research Coordinator Positions Open in the Stress and Development Lab at Harvard

An experienced, independent, and highly-organized individual is sought for a full-time Research Coordinator position in the Stress and Development Laboratory at Harvard University Psychology Department, run by Katie McLaughlin, PhD.  The position will begin in summer 2019 (ideally June).  Research examines the impact of environmental experience on children’s development. Most of their studies are focused on identifying developmental mechanisms linking adverse environmental experiences to the onset of psychopathology.

Under the supervision of Dr. McLaughlin, the individual in this position will be involved in managing an active research lab with several large grants and participate in many aspects of the research process, including recruitment of children and adolescents into research, preparation of IRB applications, data collection, supervision of volunteer research assistants, data management, programming behavioral tasks, and development and maintenance of a database for participant recruitment and tracking.  These duties will primarily focus on an intensive repeated-measures fMRI study examining dynamic changes in neural networks following exposure to stress in adolescents.  Data collection for these studies involves acquisition of psychophysiology and MRI data in addition to assessments of mental health and exposure to stress and adversity.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Collect data from children, adolescents, and parents in multi-modal studies involving psychophysiology, neuroimaging, and mental health assessments
  • Supervise a team of research assistants in data collection and data management
  • Prepare IRB applications
  • Program behavioral tasks
  • Clean and organize data for analysis
  • Develop and maintain databases for participant recruitment and tracking

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a relevant academic area
  • Experience working with children and adolescents
  • Experience with task presentation software (e.g., Eprime, Psychopy, MATLAB) is preferred
  • Experience in analyzing neuroimgaging data (i.e., MRI, fMRI, DTI) and comfort working in a command-line environment (e.g., Linux) is preferred

Please contact lab managers, Steven Kasparek and Azure Reid-Russell, for details on how to apply: sdlab@fas.harvard.edu

2019 Marketing and Advertising Education (MADE) Internship- January 18, 2019 Deadline date

Job Description

The MADE (Marketing and Advertising Education) internship is a leadership development program for students interested in becoming the future leaders of the marketing and advertising industry. Founded by the ANA Educational Foundation, the MADE internship places you in a summer intern program at one of more than 50 marketing, advertising, or media companies, with participants including MasterCard, IBM, Sephora, McCann, mcgarrybowen, and Ogilvy. Positioned as the “common app” for summer internships, this paid program is designed to provide students with the skills, the mentors, and the training that will help you thrive in the industry.

Application deadline: January 18, 2019

Who Can Apply

Due to company demand, we are only looking for current juniors and seniors. If you’re not yet into your junior year, we’ll see you soon! For students who already have graduated from college, we unfortunately won’t be able to consider your candidacy.

Matching Process Overview

Currently, we have more than 50 companies signed up to hold a slot for the MADE program. Given that we do not know the exact hiring needs of every company, we have a greater pool of candidates who we are sharing with host companies than we have slots. See below for the process we are using to match students with host companies:

  • Based on student interest and the MADE committee assessment, we have shared the candidate’s entire file (e.g., resume, recommendation, digital interview, online assessment score) with that host company
  • That host company then selects the two candidates who they want exclusivity to continue the conversation. That exclusivity lasts for one week, and after that time expires, other companies can consider that candidate.
  • The host company then sets up a further discussion with that candidate. Some companies will want you to meet the hiring manager. Others might just accept you outright. Every company is different so we are trying to gather as much information as possible and communicate that to you.

A Few Things To Consider

  • Matching process is slow – we are talking to all of our host companies during the month of February. We have stressed urgency but often the matching process is slow (e.g., scheduling conflicts, committee review of candidates, delay in getting back to us). We have created mechanisms to drive greater urgency but can only move as fast as the hiring companies.
  • A match is not guaranteed – we unfortunately cannot guarantee a placement for you during this process. Please treat every opportunity as an interview so that you can make the best possible placement.
  • Competition for just one slot – the company will often be interviewing two candidates from the MADE pool for one slot. Please make sure you are prepared for that conversation.
  • Insight into the MADE host company – we will try to prepare you as much as possible for that conversation with the MADE host company (e.g., what they are looking for, what the candidate process looks like). We want you to succeed.
  • More companies added to the MADE mix – our goal is to enable placement for many of you as possible. We are adding more companies to the MADE host pool every week based on our conversations.

Our Expectations Of You

  • Please just communicate with us if a company is of interest. We expect you to get back to us within two business days. If we do not hear from you, we will then assume you are not interested in that opportunity (and also the MADE program in general).

Please do let us know if you have other offers. We can give you a realistic sense of where you stand in the process based on our conversations.
