Project Coordinator, Developmental Neuroscience

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Position Description:

We are seeking up to 2 post-baccalaureate researchers in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC Chapel Hill to work on a joint project with Drs. Eva Telzer and Kristen Lindquist. We specifically are looking for BA-level researchers with skills in recruitment, screening, and data collection with adolescent participants and their families who wish to gain more experience in research for graduate school. Fluency in spoken and written Spanish is highly desirable. The researcher would work on a unique dataset that combines theories and methods in developmental neuroscience (longitudinal fMRI data), social affective neuroscience (emotional processing, social interactions), and health behaviors (health risk behaviors, internalizing and externalizing disorders). The position also includes opportunities for professional development and unique interdisciplinary training that will be useful for a variety of academic career paths. Positions begin summer 2023.

Qualifications:

Experience with fMRI acquisition, managing and processing fMRI data, computer science and coding, experience with social or developmental neuroscience methods, and an interest in adolescent interpersonal experiences, psychological symptoms, emotion, or risk behaviors is a plus.
