Job Opportunities

Clinical Research Coordinator Position in the Sleep, Cognition and Neuropsychiatry (SCAN) Lab at the MGH-Martinos Center:

We are seeking a college graduate with strong organizational and interpersonal skills to hire as a full-time Clinical Research Coordinator starting in May/June 2024. The CRC will assist with several projects investigating the neural basis and nature of cognitive deficits in neuropsychiatric disorders. The primary line of investigation focuses on the contribution of abnormal sleep to impaired memory consolidation in schizophrenia and autism.

The CRC will work closely with the Principal Investigator, research fellows, lab mates, and collaborators on all aspects of the research projects. The techniques employed include polysomnography (sleep electroencephalography), electroencephalography (EEG), and functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Training in data acquisition and analysis will be provided. Responsibilities are varied and include managing patient studies, recruitment, screening and characterization of participants, maintaining accurate records, and assisting with grant applications, human subject applications, and publications. A mentored research project is encouraged. Knowledge of Mac and/or Linux/UNIX operating systems, as well as some programming experience is an asset.

This is an excellent research opportunity for someone bound for graduate school in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or medicine. The candidate must be mature and responsible with excellent organizational, interpersonal as well as oral and written communication skills. They must be able to work independently and as part of a team in a fast-paced environment, juggle and prioritize multiple tasks, and seek assistance when appropriate. Additionally, they must feel comfortable working with clinical and non-clinical study populations. A two-year commitment is required.

Please submit a cover letter, CV/resume, writing sample, college transcript (unofficial is fine), and contact information for three references to Lindsey Woodham,
