Research Assistant position in the Thompson-Schill lab

A full-time Research Assistant position is available in the Thompson-Schill lab at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. Research in the lab focuses on the biological bases of human cognitive systems -- perception, memory, language, thought, cognitive control -- and the interrelations between them. We investigate these systems by developing and implementing experiments involving a wide-array of methodolgies, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), genotyping, and eye-tracking. Our investigations include both typical and atypical (patient) populations.

Familiarity with computers, Microsoft Office, and experience with statistics are desirable. Responsibilities include designing and implementing experiments, data analysis, subject recruitment, and some administrative/IT work. A two-year commitment is required. Interested parties should contact Dr. Sharon Thompson-Schill ( with a statement of interest, CV/resume, unofficial transcript, and contact info for three references.
