Research Assistant - RECRUITING NOW


The primary goals of the Research Assistant (RA) will be to work with a multi-disciplinary team to learn cutting-edge research in neurology and network science.

The RA will also have the opportunity to execute his or her own project under the mentorship of the Principle Investigator. 


Primary responsibilities will include recruiting and interviewing subjects, writing IRB materials, managing budgets and grant submissions, engaging with patients, supervising undergraduate research trainees, and conducting preliminary social network analysis. This position will provide the Research Assistant the opportunity to gain patient-contact experience, managerial skills, exposure to neurology, and data analysis skills that could lead to academic presentations. 


This job is well suited for individuals interested in social networks, neurology, or a career in research or medicine. A background in computer science, statistics, and social science are beneficial.
