Prospective graduate students interested in joining the lab may email Dr. Lajiness-O’Neill, Dr. Bo, or the lab coordinator to inquire about availability, current research projects, and adviser fit.
The BRAIN Lab is not accepting research assistant (RA) applications for Fall 2023. Thank you so much for your interest in the lab. We will update the website if an opening comes up throughout the semester. Stay tuned!
As an RA, you will have the opportunity to engage in a number of research tasks such as visits with participants, data collection and entry, exposure to neuroimaging, and many others! You will learn invaluable research skills and gain hands-on experience working directly with our graduate students and lab team, as well as providing a significant contribution to the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience.
Benefits to consider:
- Gain experience with EEG and neuroimaging
- Have the rare opportunity to engage in unique, specialized clinical/experimental research
- Interact and work with study participants
- Receive valuable experience and a list of references for future jobs/internships
- Potential to write an Honors Thesis
- Undergraduates can volunteer or receive course credit through independent studies (PSY497, 498, 499, NSCI497, 498, 499, CSD 497, 498, 499), can replace NCSI440 (seminar 2)
- Having experience in a research laboratory is an excellent way to enrich your resume/CV and may qualify you for greater future opportunities
- Highly recommended for undergraduates interested in pursuing Master’s or Ph.D. programs
