Associate in Research 
Neuroscience of SPACE Lab / Dr. Jennifer Groh 
Duke University Department of Psychology and Neuroscience 

The Neuroscience of SPACE Laboratory (www.duke.edu/~jmgroh) at Duke University seeks a full time Associate in Research to join the lab. The Neuroscience of SPACE Lab’s research involves visual, auditory, and multisensory processing in the brain using neurophysiological and computational/statistical techniques. 

Job duties include assisting in animal care involving macaques (handling, training, overseeing health status) and administrative responsibilities (ordering supplies, overseeing compliance with IACUC regulations, backing up computers). There will be opportunities to assist in conducting experiments concerning the neural basis of spatial processing and its connection to cognition. 

A completed a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience, biology, psychology or related quantitative field is required prior to the start date (ideally between now and May/June 2023). Previous experience working with a mammalian species in a laboratory setting is a plus. 

The ideal candidate will have training in the domain of neuroscience/psychology as well as some coursework in a computational/quantitative subject area (such as statistics, computer science, engineering, physics, or math), and be willing to make a 2+ year commitment to the position. Previous holders of this position have participated actively in the development of research projects in the laboratory and have gone on to graduate school in neuroscience. 

This is a full time, grant funded position, eligible for all Duke benefits (https://hr.duke.edu/benefits) with an initial appointment of one year with the possibility of renewal, dependent on funding and performance. Anticipated start date is May/June 2023. 

Interested individuals should apply through Academic Jobs Online and include their resume, a cover letter and contact information for at least 2 references. Only applicants that have applied through Academic Jobs Online will be reviewed. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. If you are not able to upload your application materials or if letter writers would prefer to upload their letters directly, please complete your application and email those materials to Meghann Koffi at meghann.koffi@duke.edu to be uploaded manually. 

For questions about the lab or position, please contact Dr. Jennifer Groh (Depts of Psychology and Neuroscience, Neurobiology, Computer Science, and Biomedical Engineering) at jmgroh@duke.edu.
