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.

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
- Bachelor’s degree in a relevant academic area
