The Development, Experience and Neurocognition (DEN) Lab at the University of Iowa (Director: Dr. Ece Demir-Lira) is looking for a full-time research intern to serve as a research lab coordinator to join us in the Spring or Summer of 2019.
Research in the lab addresses the question of why some children, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, fall behind their peers in academic achievement while others thrive. Our research leverages naturalistic, longitudinal observations and experimental designs to examine how the early parental input in the home environment relates to children’s academic skills. We complement this approach with structural and functional neuroimaging measures to analyze how parental background and parental input relate to the neurocognitive basis of children’s academic skills, and how these neurocognitive correlates, in turn, relate to children’s academic success. Applicants can learn more about our work here https://demir-lira.lab.uiowa.edu/
Responsibilities include participant recruitment, scheduling, conducting batteries of neurocognitive and behavioral testing with children, programming of behavioral and neuroimaging experiments, stimulus development, management and analysis of behavioral and neuroimaging data. The coordinator will also provide general research support, such as coordinate lab meetings, manage team of research assistants, assist with IRB and grant proposal preparation, and author manuscripts for publication.
The initial appointment will be for one year beginning in Spring or Summer 2019, with the possibility of renewal for a 2nd year depending on performance and available funding.
Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive science, Computer science, or related fields.
