Applicants must be well-organized in order to coordinate and manage multiple projects and responsibilities simultaneously. Working well with staff, patients, and participants is essential. Duties include research responsibilities like recruiting participants, running research visits, and summarizing data; regulatory tasks like maintaining IRB correspondence; and computing-based duties like maintaining a research MRI repository server, writing, debugging, and organizing scripts and settings, and working with other investigators to ensure seamless operation of processing pipelines.
We are primarily interested in candidates with an engineering background, although this is not a prerequisite. Experience coding in at least 1 language like MATLAB, Python, or UNIX shell (Linux) is required, but a willingness to learn is more important than knowledge of multiple languages. This position will provide valuable experience in both clinical and basic research, as well as clinical exposure, which makes it an excellent opportunity interested in pursuing an MD, PhD, or both. Previous research assistants from the Center have matriculated to highly competitive graduate and medical school positions.
The ideal candidate would be willing to accept the position for 2 years, although a shorter time frame may be an option. All interested applicants should send a CV/resume; a brief statement of interests and future plans; and arrange for a reference to be sent via email to Patrick Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
