The Sleeping Brain Lab, Johns Hopkins University

Research assistant

Our laboratory invites applicants for the position of Research Assistant.

Our research: The main focus of our lab is to examine the influence of sleep on perception, memory, attention and plasticity, both in health people and human diseases. For example, can the brain perceive noises while asleep without waking up? Does sleep boost memory? What are the cognitive consequences of sleep deprivation?

Requirements: Undergraduate degree in a quantitative discipline such as engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, psychology, physics or neuroscience. Experience with MATLAB or other high-level programming language. 

Responsibilities: Assist in experimental design, coding of stimulus presentation, data collection and analysis, construction and maintenance of data analysis infrastructure. Administrative duties include: recruitment and scheduling of participants, preparation of IRB protocols, and assistance in grant submissions as well as general lab management.

This two-year opportunity is an excellent pathway for someone planning to apply to medical school or graduate school. Ample opportunity exists for involvement in all aspects of research.  

Anticipated start time is flexible.
