Lab manager position - Duke University
Neuroscience laboratory in the Departments of Psychology and Neuroscience & Neurobiology and the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke University seeks a lab technician/lab manager. Our research involves visual, auditory, and multisensory processing in the brain using neurophysiological techniques. We seek a dedicated individual interested in gaining experience in a scientific laboratory (ideally, for a 2+ year commitment). Job duties include animal care involving macaques (handling, training, overseeing health status), administrative responsibilities (ordering supplies, overseeing compliance with IACUC regulations, facilitating the day-to-day needs of the research group, backing up computers), and conducting experiments concerning the neural basis of spatial processing and its connection to cognition. The ideal candidate will have completed a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience, biology, psychology or a related field and will have experience working with a mammalian species. Experience or coursework in quantitative subjects such as computer science or statistics is a plus.
For more information, send resume, cover letter, and a list of references to Dr. Jennifer Groh (jmgroh@xxxxxxxx, www.duke.edu/~jmgroh) as soon as possible. Review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
